OSU introduces minor course of study in coaching science


Special to The Sun

STILLWATER — A new minor study in coaching science is now available to students at Oklahoma State University. Open to students in any major program of study, the 18-hour minor provides preparation and credentials for coaching. Tim Baghurst, assistant professor in health and human performance in the College of Education, coordinates the minor.

Many states require a coaching certification or endorsement in order to coach, and completing the minor should assist OSU graduates in landing coaching positions. The minor includes course work in athletic training, nutrition, physical education, strength and conditioning, exercise physiology and sport management. For more information about the minor, contact Baghurst at 744-4346 or tim.baghurst@
