2012 CHATTANOOGA CROSS COUNTRY Bill Gautier

Head Coach • 22nd Year • Western Kentucky, 1983

At the helm of Chattanooga cross country and track and field, Bill Gautier has established himself as one of the top coaches in the Southern Conference and perhaps the Southeast. In 20 years, Gautier has led his men’s cross country teams to four league titles and seven runner up finishes. His 1998 men’s SoCon Championship team also captured the South Region crown and made school history as the only UTC team to compete in the NCAA Championships. The Mocs were led by Nic Crider, who became the first Chattanooga runner to earn three

straight SoCon individual titles. Last season Emmanuel Kirwa became the second with his third straight SoCon Cross Country title. The women’s cross country team has seen similar success with seven titles and four runner up finishes. Former distance runner Shannon Wommack is the most decorated Chattanooga runner in school history. She is a five-time All-American, fourtime Southern Conference Indoor Track Performer of the Year, three-time Southern Conference Cross Country Runner of the Year and the 2006 Southern Conference Women’s Athlete of the Year. She became UTC’s first three-time qualifier for the NCAA Cross Country Championships, earning automatic qualifications at the NCAA South Regional in 2002, 2004 and 2005. Wommack also finished third in the 3,000 meter steeplechase at the 2006 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field

Championships, setting a new school record, while earning her second AllAmerica honors in that event. In 2007, Gautier saw another one of his runners, Lanni Marchant, earn the program’s second straight Southern Conference Women’s Athlete of the Year Award. Gautier’s first of two Indoor Coach of the Year honors came in 1998, when his women’s team claimed the title and his second in 2003, when his women’s team amassed the most points in school history for a third place team finish. Chattanooga has won numerous individual championships and topathlete honors over the years. Steven Kocsis wrapped up his junior season with a third top athlete crown winning two distance events at the conference championships and then earning an atlarge bid to compete in the men’s 5,000 meters at the NCAA Championships, along with Wommack.

WHAT’S A MOC? THE EVOLUTION OF THE MASCOT

THE ANSWER

For more than a decade, this question has puzzled many fans and observers of Chattanooga Athletics. The UTC Athletics Department changed logos in 1997, moving away from Native American imagery to a package of logos using railroad images, the nickname “Mocs,” and the Scrappy mascot. The new package emphasized UTC’s connection to Chattanooga and the city’s railroad heritage and incorporated the Tennessee state bird. The term “Moc” is short for “Mockingbird.” Mockingbirds are fiercely territorial creatures which protect their homes with courage, Introduced in 2008, the new-look Scrappy has determination and skill. Those a sharper and more modern feel, mirroring the growth and image of UTC Athletics. attributes reflect the intellect, spirit and character of UTC student-athletes and alumni. A Moc is a champion on the playing surface, in the classroom and, most importantly, in life.

SCRAPPY

Named after legendary football coach A.C. “Scrappy” Moore, Scrappy, the Chattanooga mascot, is a fixture for the Mocs. A re-design in 2008 puts Scrappy in the image of the State Bird of Tennessee, a mockingbird. The mockingbird is known as a fierce protector of its nest and environment. It is sometimes seen swooping down on a dog, cat or predator that may be venturing too close to the bird’s protected territory. Once described by “Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon as “a sledge-hammer wielding mockingbird with a heart of Blue & Gold,” Scrappy symbolizes that competitive passion.

WHY MOCS? Faced with politically sensitive issues and in need of a stronger core identity to help establish a strong brand as Chattanooga’s Team, the athletics department embarked on a comprehensive identity program in 1996. A new direction for the athletics identity was determined, moving away from the politically incorrect Native American Indian imagery. Several identities have been used in the past. With the old nickname “Moccasins,” a snake was used in the 1920s and an Indian was used until the year of major change in 1996. A moccasin shoe was even used in the 1980s. In 1996, it was decided to adopt the State Bird of Tennessee, the Mockingbird, as the core of the The “Power C” logo is the primary mark of new identity, while incorporating Chattanooga Mocs Athletics. the strong regional imagery of Chattanooga’s vast railroad history. The mascot “Scrappy” was born and a new emphasis was placed on the athletics department’s role in the region. The committee also recognized the need for the word “Chattanooga” to have a great emphasis in the logo. The nickname “Moccasins” was shortened to simply “Mocs.” Thus established, Chattanooga could rebuild its athletics programs and initiatives around this new identity. And rebuild it did. Quickly establishing the identity program in February 1997, combined with tremendous success in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, UTC had positioned itself to reach for the next level. From 1997 to 2007, the primary logo was the mascot, Scrappy, riding a train. The secondary logo features the front of a train with the word Mocs built into the logo. This logo is affectionately called the “Cowcatcher logo,” referring to the front lower grill of the train that helped push objects from the train tracks. In August 2007, officials at Chattanooga updated the school’s marks. A new C logo, the “Power C” as it has become known to fans and alums, was created as the primary mark and is emblazoned on the side of the football team’s helmets. The secondary marks were updated with a more modern look, and a new font, unique to the school, is now used on the text areas of the logos and marks. In September 2008, Scrappy was rebranded to better match the image of a mockingbird and reflect the rich tradition of our state, our city and our University. New marks of the head as well as a full body were released. The program has also been taking special efforts to stay true to its color palette—which includes navy blue The Cowcatcher logo has been recently modified, and old gold. but is still in use by UTC Athletics.
