THE EVER-CHANGING nomenclature of college coaching in America presents a challenge for our traditional listing-shorthand of coaching changes made in the off-season.
It used to be just head coaches and assistants, but now we have more and more “directors” working alongside “coordinators” and “associates.” Says one coach of the Director tag, “I hate that title. I’d rather be ‘head coach for men’s & women’s track.’ ”
However, more and more secondary people in the chain are being called “head coach.” In the real world, though, someone’s still in charge. We list those people as head coaches, and every other paid position as assistants, regardless of their relative rank in the hierarchy. In the common case of a track assistant being a head cross country coach, we denote those with “XC.”
We do not list the many “volunteer coaches” or “graduate assistants” since such a compilation would prove unwieldy and also likely be rapidly out of date.
This listing is meant to be inclusive of changes since the end of the last NCAA season in early June.
