INDIANAPOLIS – Terry (Hull) Crawford, a former U.S. Olympic Team head coach and former head women's track & field and cross country coach at the University of Tennessee, has been named USA Track & Field's first Director of Coaching by CEO Doug Logan.
Among other duties, Crawford will serve as liaison to coaches and the coaching community, oversee USATF's Coaching Education program; develop a coaching certification program; oversee Team USA coaching staff selection and credentialing; and direct the track & field residence program at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center.
"Without our coaches, our athletes cannot be successful," Logan said. "Early on in my tenure I recognized the imperative that USATF devote staff and resources to serving their needs. The respect Coach Crawford has from her peers as a coach, administrator and coaches' advocate will serve her well as we strengthen our ties to coaches and revamp the programs that serve them."
"I am very excited about this next phase in my career," Crawford said. "To be able to elevate USATF's service to coaches, and by extension, to athletes, is something I couldn't pass up. I am looking forward to being part of this new era."... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
