Golden Eagle Coaching Staff

Head Coach Craig King Third season

All-OVC honors (1981) Three-time tournament medalist

Craig King is in his third season as head coach of the men’s golf team at Tennessee Tech in 2010-11. King, 52, played for Tech from 1979 to 1981, graduated from TTU in 1982, has been a PGA member since 1987, and played and worked in the golf business in New York, Arizona, Florida and Tennessee. He played his college golf at Tennessee Tech under legendary coach Bobby Nichols, and returns to his alma mater looking to continue the traditions and legacies of his former coach. Craig King has been a familiar name in the Cookeville golfing community from the time he was a teenager. He was a three-year letterman under coach Ken Honea at Cookeville High School and was a two-time all-district selection for the Cavaliers, winning medalist honors at the district tournament as a senior. After high school, he enrolled at the University of Florida where he was a member of the Gator’s freshman golf team for one semester before transferring to Tech in January 1978 and joining the Golden Eagle squad. While King sat out one year due to transfer rules, the Tech golf team underwent a transition, with M.P. Quillen taking over the coaching duties for one year before former Golden Eagle standout Bobby Nichols was named head coach. King played three seasons for the Golden Eagles under Nichols’ guidance before graduating in 1982 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He earned all-OVC honors as a junior in 1981, finishing third overall at the conference championship. He was medalist in three tournaments in a row in 1981, and ranks second in Tech history for most career medalist honors. King turned professional following graduation and played on pro tours in Florida and Arizona, and spent four years as an assistant golf pro at The Concord Resort in Kiamesha Lake, New York, under TTU Hall of Fame member, Hubert Smith. He was in Arizona from 1984 to 1989 as assistant golf pro at Desert Highland Golf Club and Superstition Springs Golf Club, then became the head golf pro at Windstone Golf Club in Ringgold, Ga., in 1989.

In 1993, he returned to Cookeville , and spent a year designing and constructing CK’s Golf Center, which was a popular par three golf course from 1995 to 1999. Since 2000, King has worked as an administrator at the Cookeville Regional Medical Center. “We are pleased and honored that Craig King is our new men’s golf head coach,” said Mark Wilson, Tech Director of Athletics, upon the naming of King. “I know that he will build upon the great foundation and tradition that Bobby Nichols established, and we will have a championship level program under coach King, both academically and athletically.”

here's no question Tennessee Tech University is a great place to get an education. And Cookeville is a great college town. The largest micropolitan area in Tennessee and one of the top 40 micropolitan areas in the nation, Cookeville has consistently been rated among the top 10 most affordable regions in the nation. Cookeville boasts a mild climate, with an average temperature of 57 and four distinct seasons. Located within a day's drive of 75 percent of the nation's population, Cookeville is just off Interstate 40, which runs from the east coast to California. City life is easily accessible, as well, because Cookeville is situated within 100 miles of Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga — three of Tennessee's major metropolitan areas. The seat of Putnam County, Cookeville is the heart of a three-county alliance known as the Highlands, which centers Tennessee's 14-county Upper Cumberland region. We have hundreds of acres of unspoiled nature — from championship golf courses to natural preserves, state parks and top-rated lakes — close to home.There's plenty of nature inside the city limits, too; the City of Cookeville tends nine parks, including Cane Creek Park, a 262-acre natural area with a 56-acre lake. And while Cookeville is a relatively small town, we have no lack of culture. We are one of the smallest cities in the U.S. with a full-blown symphony orchestra, and our area attracts visual artists and craftspeople from across the nation, thanks to the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of TTU. Drama also takes center stage here, with the 456-seat Cookeville Performing Arts Center cranking out productions year-round, including the award-winning Drama Center Backstage series. Cookeville is home to three museums — the Cookeville Depot Museum, the Cookeville History Museum and the Cookeville Children's Museum — and a year-round slate of events, including regular excursion trains and the annual Fall FunFest. A walkable downtown shopping district and an impressive roster of national chain stores give the retail segment a small-town feel with big-city convenience. Add to that our more than 100 restaurants and 1,400 hotel rooms, and you'll quickly see that Cookeville offers something for everyone.

Golden Eagle Coaching Staff

Head Coach Brandy Stout Third Season

Two-time All-Tournament honors as a Golden Eagle player

Now in her third year as head coach of the Tennessee Tech women’s golf team, Brandy Stout played at Tennessee Tech under legendary coach Bobby Nichols. She was named head coach in July 2008 and is hoping to continue the traditions and legacies of her former coach. Stout, 27, was a member of the Tech women’s squad from 2001 to 2005, graduated in 2006, and taught golf in Cookeville for two years before embarking on her collegiate coaching career. “We are pleased and honored to announce that Brandy Stout has accepted the position of women’s golf head coach,” said Mark Wilson, TTU Director of Athletics. “I know that she will build upon the great foundation and tradition that Bobby Nichols established, and we will have a championship level women’s golf program, both academically and athletically.”

Stout was a standout high school player, earning four letters at Lenoir City High School under coach Janet McGhee, a former Tech women’s basketball player. As a freshman, she was regional medalist and Player of the Year, and finished 15th individually at the TSSAA state tournament. She was also the regional medalist in 1998 and 2000, and finished third in 1999. She moved up the standings each year at the state tournament, finishing 14th as a sophomore, 11th as a junior and sixth as a senior. Stout earned two all-tournament honors in her career, including leading Tech to the championship of the Mercer Invitational as a freshman in 2002. That same year she won the team’s Impact Award, and as a senior she was named team co-captain by Nichols.

Golden Eagle Coaching Staff In 2006, she received her bachelor’s degree from Tech in Multidisciplinary Studies. She has held teaching positions at Ironwood, White Plains and Southern Hills golf courses in Cookeville since graduation, and has also worked at various golf clinics. “I am honored to be given this opportunity,” Stout said. “It’s been a dream of mine to be a collegiate golf coach, and to be able to take on the program that coach Nichols built makes it more special. “I understand what the current players have been through, and it’s important for them to have somebody who cares, not only for them individually, but to continue the legacy established by Bobby Nichols,” she said.

Stout says she learned numerous lessons during her four seasons under Nichols’ guidance. “Coach Nichols taught us the right way to do things, and he taught us the honesty and respect for the game,” she said. “He taught us that golf is not just a sport, but it also teaches life lessons. He taught us that, as a member of the Tech golf team, you represent not only yourself, you also represent your coach, the rest of the team and the university. I hope that’s something I can carry on.”

Assistant Coach Kylie Crouch Sixth Season

Twelve-time all-tournament Three-time tournament medalist Two-time team MVP A four-year letterwinner and one of the most successful players in the history of the Tech women’s golf program, Kylie Crouch returned to her alma mater to assist Bobby Nichols with coaching the program that she was a such a major part of during her playing career. In 2008, she continued that role under new head coach Brandy Stout. The 2010-11 campaign marks Crouch’s sixth year as an assistant coach. A native of Sparta, she earned her degree in multidisciplinary studies in December, 2001, finishing her undergraduate courses in 3 1/2 years. She enrolled in a master’s program in library science and played her final semester as a graduate student. As a player for the Golden Eagles, Crouch set the program’s standard by earning 12 alltournament honors, more than any other player in the team’s history, and helped Tech capture the 2000 and 2001 OVC championships.. She was also a three-time tournament medalist, winning top honors at the 1999 Great Smokies Collegiate, the 2000 APSU Precept Invitational and the 2001 EKU Lady Colonel Classic. She was named the team MVP following the 1999 and 2001 seasons, and also was named Most Dedicated in both years. Crouch was chosen the Most Improved Player on the TTU squad in both 1998 and 1999. In her final season, while serving as team co-captain, she posted the low average of 76.8 and won her second Best Putter Award. Following graduation, she was a teaching professional in Franklin, Tenn., and served as the Program Director for the Tennessee Golf Foundation at Golf House. In addition to serving as assistant coach for the Golden Eagles, she also operates a real estate appraisal business.

MARK WILSON Director of Athletics - Maine 1991 Mark Wilson’s first six years as Director of Athletics at Tennessee Tech have been highlighted by vision, energy, and enthusiasm. Those factors have facilitated growth and excellence in all areas and have placed the focus on generating a better student-athlete experience. Wilson is currently serving an appointment on the NCAA Leadership Council through April, 2011. It gives the Ohio Valley Conference, TTU and Wilson a voice in a variety of strategic decisions that can affect intercollegiate athletics. Wilson, 41, has led athletics to several milestone accomplishments during his first six years, including enhanced facilities and fund raising, high profile staff additions, and compliance and academic success. Under Wilson’s guidance, the program has continued to focus on the academic success of its student-athletes, with soaring numbers each semester on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. Tech’s studentathletes have achieved their highest overall combined semester GPAs. Wilson also developed a strategic plan for Tech’s athletic facilities and has already seen some of those plans become reality. During the past three years Tech has completed several construction projects to athletic facilities, including resurfacing the outdoor tennis courts, a new natural grass practice field, installation of new turf in Tucker Stadium, renovating the running track, renovating the football offices, meeting rooms and locker rooms, and new lights at Tucker Stadium. Most recently, Athletics opened a spacious, new basketball office complex in

32

Eblen Center and construction is underway on an new Athletic Performance Center on the western edge of campus. Additional building plans call for a new student-athlete center. Another step achieved under Wilson’s direction has been increased fund raising and development efforts with the goal of providing the necessary resources for Tech’s student-athletes, coaches and staff. All of those accomplishments have come while the department has continued to stay focused on compliance with all NCAA rules and regulations. Wilson was named Director of Athletics on July 1, 2004. He came to Tennessee Tech from Ohio University. Since his first day at Tech, Wilson has made rapid and steady progress. He began by restructuring the department and implementing plans for a better student-athlete experience. In addition, athletics launched a dynamic new website, gained NCAA certification and was found in complete compliance, created a far-reaching “WIN” program for academic success, opened an entertaining and popular Tailgate Park, and started plans for two capital projects. Before going to Ohio, Mark served as the Director of Athletic Marketing for the University of Massachusetts. He also worked as a graduate assistant in the UMass athletic department and interned with the Northwestern University ticketing and marketing departments. Wilson received his bachelor’s degree in 1991 from the University of Maine in physical education and health, and earned his master’s in sports management from the University of Massachusetts in 1994. Mark has two daughters, Katey (16) and Meaghan (11).

ACADEMIC UniversitySUPPORT Administration

Winning in the Classroom Tennessee Tech’s commitment to its student-athletes is evident. The support personnel and resources available provide Golden Eagle student-athletes with the tools needed for success. The success of Tennessee Tech University’s athletic teams is tied closely to the academic progress of each student-athlete, and the academic performance of each Tech student-athlete is closely monitored by the coaching staff as well as an experienced staff in Academic Services. Tech’s student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom. Each semester, the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll pays tribute to more than 150 students in athletics, including athletes, trainers, managers and cheerleaders, and the overall GPA of the department has climbed steeply in the past seven semesters. Student-athletes are the most visible component of a university, entertaining thousands of fans, students, alumni, family and friends. Their athletic abilities and achievements are a focus for national attention, as athletic events not only bring back faithful alumni, but serve as a welcome mat to the university for potential new stu- Marilyn Borch-Jensen dents. Academic Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they Advisement can be. These hours are not required by non-athletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete Secretary with academics for the student-athlete’s time and energy. The Tech Athletics Department works to provide help with course content (through tutors and monitored study hours) as well as with time management and study skills and any other academic support services that will allow Tech student-athletes to maximize their academic potential.

The “WIN” program: Work Intensely Now The WIN Program was implemented in the fall semester of 2004 to provide additional support for freshmen and student-athletes whose general academic progress places them at risk for maintaining eligibility and graduating. The program involves the student-athlete, coach(es), academic advisor, tutors, and others to build academic skills for success. Participation in the program is primarily based on grades, and coaches or the academic advisor may recommend additional participation at any time. All incoming freshmen meet at least one time per week with their coach to discuss academic progress and needs as well as time management and study skill techniques. Other aspects of the program include monitored study hours, tutoring, and study skills workshops.

Administration By taking advantage of expertAthletics instruction, Golden Eagle student-athletes are afforded every opportunity to maximize their athletic potential Development of Core Strength Imagine the body is a 3-link chain with the head and arms being one link, the torso.trunk being the second link and the legs being the third link. If the core link (trunk/torso) is weak or inflexible, there is little chance of maximizing potential because all body movement stems from the core.

Make workouts short and intense There are many philosophies on how to get athletes stronger, faster and more flexible. But, when combined, these philosophies have the same three underlying principles: a) The workouts should be highly organized b) The workouts should be short in duration c) The workouts should be extremely intense

Train using ground-based, multi-joint lifting versus machine lifting The following are recommendations for athletes Most athletes participate in stand up power sports using concerning days and times of strength training many muscle groups at once. The emphasis of training (including warm-ups): should be on total body athleticism and flexibility rather than * In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout having body weight supported by a machine and forcing * Post-season: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout isolation of just one muscle group. By incorporating ground* Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout based lifts and exercises that focus on the total body, the athlete becomes more prepared to use their whole body in sport skills.

Assistant Strength Coaches

Train for Power (which results in increased speed) Power = (Mass Moved x Distance)/time. The less time it takes to move a mass a certain distance, the higher the output. As seen in the above formula, an increase in speed of movements results in an increase in power. Train Athleticism Many factors are included in athleticism: strength, power, speed, agility, flexibility, coordination, fitness level and mental toughness are just a few. It is the goal to maximize an athlete’s overall athleticism.

Kristina Hortert

Elijah Muhammad

Train as a Team When teams train together, it provides another opportunity to develop chemistry, teamwork, leadership skills and a competitive environment. Within this competitive environment, teams can work on mental toughness, attacking the weights and maintaining a positive attitude. By enabling athletes to work on these things as a team, it helps to promote a stronger sense of unity, therefore making it harder to “fold” under pressure.
