Making Coaching a Science? OSU Says Yes.
Oklahoma State University is offering a new minor study in coaching science. The new 18-hour minor program is open to students in any program who are interested in coaching.
The program is coordinated by Tim Baghurst, assistant professor in health and human performance in the College of Education. Baghurst says the college surveyed high school athletic directors, who said that a coaching science program will help better prepare future coaches. The minor includes coursework in athletic training, nutrition, physical education, strength and conditioning, exercise physiology and sport management.
