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 AllAmerican, four-time 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 All-America 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 top-athlete 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 at-large bid to compete in the men’s 5,000 meters at the NCAA Championships, along with Wommack. In 2005, Wommack became the seventh Chattanooga track and field athlete to be awarded the A.C. “Scrappy” Moore Award since 1992. This award is given to the UTC studentathlete who best personifies the athletic department’s core values. Past track and field winners include Ian Mayne (2004), Amanda Lynch (1999), Anna and Catherine Wright (1998), Mary Jane Middlekoop (1997) and Michael Kyle (1995). During his UTC career, Gautier has been named the Southern Conference Cross Country Coach of the Year a total of nine times. These have included six times for women’s cross country (1997, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2006, 2007), four times for men’s cross country (1998, 1999, 2003, 2004) and twice for indoor track and field (1998, 2003). He earned All-Region honors in 1998, for his men’s cross country team. Prior to his arrival at Chattanooga, Gautier served as the head cross country coach and assistant track coach at Southeast Missouri State. In his six seasons at SEMO, his men’s and women’s teams won six conference titles in cross country. His teams also placed in the top five at the NCAA Division II Championships in both track and cross country five out of six seasons. Gautier was named the National Combine Coach of the Year in 1990, and was the NCAA Division II Coach of the Year for six consecutive seasons. He has coached 17 NCAA Division II National Champions and 56 All-Americans. Gautier earned his Bachelor of Science in Physical Education and Business Administration from Western Kentucky in 1983, and received his Master’s in 1984. While at WKU, Gautier was a standout distance runner for the nationallyrecognized Hilltoppers. He and his wife, Jan, have two daughters, Taylor and Sydney.

Rick Hart

Director of Intercollegiate Athletics • North Carolina, 1994 When Rick Hart came to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, he brought with him a vision and plan for the future of the Mocs. Since his hiring on May 23, 2006, Hart has changed the landscape of the UTC Athletics Department with his leadership, organizational skills and innovative ideas on how to fulfill the Mocs’ mission of preparing students for productive and meaningful lives. Entering his fourth season as the Director of Athletics, Hart’s efforts have made a tremendous impact on the Mocs student-athletes’ quest for comprehensive excellence – academically, athletically and socially. Academically • Added staff to both the Compliance and Academic Services departments to help studentathletes progress toward the ultimate goal of earning a college degree. • Placed at least 90 student-athletes on the Athletic Director’s honor roll each semester. • Shown continuous improvement in the overall grade-point-averages for student-athletes highlighted by a 2.77 g.p.a. in the spring of 2009, the highest semester mark for the Mocs since Hart’s arrival. • Developed and implemented an ambitious APR improvement plan that is working to increase the APR scores of all Mocs athletics programs. Athletically • Captured 11 regular season and 14 tournament championships in the Southern Conference over the last three seasons, more than any other SoCon school during that time. • In 2008-09, Chattanooga posted school records with five teams competing in the NCAA Championships and 10 squads represented in the postseason. • Set a school record with a 99th place finish in the NACDA Learfield Director’s Cup that measures the overall success of all Division I athletic programs. Three of the Mocs’ top-5 all time finishes in the NACDA Director’s Cup have come in Hart’s tenure. • Captured UTC’s first Germann Cup in 200708, signifying the best all-around women’s sports program in the Southern Conference; and finished second in both the Germann Cup and Commissioner’s Cup standings in 2008-09. • 12 student-athletes selected as SoCon Athletes of the Year while two Mocs have been named the SoCon Female Athletes of the Year. Socially • Encouraged Chattanooga student-athletes in their involvement with many local community projects and charity work and has personally served as a member of the Chattanooga Rotary, the Grand Marshal of the 2007 Region 4 Special

Olympics and is a sought-after speaker among the area’s many civic organizations. • Cultivated and maintained relationships with local and national press that has led to unequalled media attention for a program of this size. • During the men’s basketball NCAA Tournament run in 2009, the NBC’s “Late Show with Jimmy Fallon” adopted the Mocs as its team of the tournament. The week-long exposure brought in an estimated $500,000 of advertising and national exposure for UTC. • Expanded educational programming (diversity, gambling prevention, etc.) for student-athletes, coaches and staff as part of a commitment to learning and personal and professional development. • Focused attention on strengthening the relationship between Mocs Athletics and the UTC campus community. Hart has also been very successful in the traditional roles as UTC Athletics Director. In an effort to ensure efficient and effective management of all elements of the athletics program, and to better align athletics with the academic mission of the institution, Hart developed and installed the Strategic Plan for UTC Athletics. A focus on the student-athlete experience has resulted in increased ticket sales and fundraising, innovative partnerships, improved athletics facilities and the addition of quality coaches. Revenue Generation/Fundraising/Attendance • Signed an exclusive, long-term marketing rights deal with Learfield Sports that guarantees record revenues from advertising and marketing with UTC Athletics. • Restructured the Mocs Club with two full-time staff, resulting in nearly a 20% increase in the number of individuals donating over the last year. • Secured three major gifts from UTC benefactors that totaled nearly $2 million in the past year. • Excluding these three major gifts, the Mocs Club capped the $1 million mark for the first time in 2008-09. • Implemented a donor program for football season ticket sales. • Overall ticket revenues have increased nearly 35% since Hart’s first year. • Women’s basketball led the SoCon in attendance in 2008-09 after increasing their season ticket sales by 40% over the previous year. • Men’s basketball was second in average attendance in the SoCon in 2008-09. • Attendance at softball games nearly doubled from 2008 to 2009. Facilities • Completed the state-of-the-art Brenda Lawson Student-Athlete Success Center which includes the Wolford Family Strength and Conditioning and Chattem Basketball Practice Facilities. • Received funding from Renee Haugerud and

John Murphy in support of major improvements to Scrappy Moore Field, the Mocs’ football practice facility. • Partnered with the City of Chattanooga and The First Tee to construct a unique practice facility for the Mocs’ golf teams. • Enhanced the Football Locker Room, Visiting Team Basketball Locker Rooms, Academic Computer Lab and Administrative Offices • Installed video boards in McKenzie Arena • Acquired land needed to develop plans and a funding model for an on-campus facility for Track & Field and Women’s Soccer. Coaches • Ignited fans everywhere with the hiring of Russ Huesman, a former Moc letter winner, in December 2008 to “Restore the Glory” to Chattanooga Football. • Hired Chris Bono in 2006 to take over the wrestling program. Bono guided UTC to threestraight SoCon titles. • Orchestrated Jeff Clark’s return to the head coaching position of the women’s tennis program in 2007. Managing finite resources in collegiate athletics is widely known as a difficult task. Hart made fiscal stewardship a priority for the department since his arrival. With diligent leadership and a commitment from each and every member of the department, UTC Athletics has made significant strides towards reducing the financial burden on the institution – including a balanced budget two of the last three years. Hart arrived on the UTC campus after serving seven years at the University of Oklahoma in various athletics administrative capacities. Hart’s career with the Sooners began in 1999 as the Director of Marketing and Licensing. He became Assistant Athletics Director for Marketing and Licensing in 2001, and developed and implemented marketing campaigns which generated annual ticket revenues in excess of $19.5 million. Hart was promoted to Associate Athletics Director for Program Advancement and Branding in 2003 and Senior Associate Athletics Director in 2006. Hart has also worked in athletics for the University of North Carolina and East Carolina University and has served with the U.S. Olympic Committee. A 1994 graduate of UNC, Hart earned a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education, Health and Sport Science. Hart and his wife, Allison, also a graduate of North Carolina, have a son, Trevor, 10, and a daughter, Caroline, 7. A third-generation athletics administrator, Hart’s father, Dave, currently serves as Executive Director of Athletics at the University of Alabama, and his late grandfather, Dave Sr., served in a variety of roles within collegiate athletics including a stint as the Commissioner of the Southern Conference from 1987-91.

The Southern Conference, which began its 91st season of intercollegiate competition in 2011, is a national leader in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. Hundreds of Southern Conference student-athletes have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/ CoSIDA Academic All-America and all-district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions. The Conference currently consists of 12 members in five states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference offices are located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the league first class meeting areas and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. Membership History On Feb. 25, 1921, representatives from 14 of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s (SIAA) 30 members met at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hotel to establish the Southern Intercollegiate Conference. On hand at the inaugural meeting were officials from Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn), Clemson, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology (Georgia Tech), Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi A&M (Mississippi State), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and Washington & Lee. Dr. S.V. Sanford of Georgia was chosen as acting chairman and N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee was named secretary. The decision to form a new athletic conference was motivated by the desire to have a workable number of conference games for each league member. Play began in the fall of 1921 and a year later, six more schools joined the fledgling league including Tulane (which had attended the inaugural meeting but had elected not to join), Florida, LSU, Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. VMI joined in 1925 and Duke was added in 1929.

By the 1930s, membership in the Southern Conference had reached 23 schools. C.P. “Sally” Miles of Virginia Tech, president of the Southern Conference, called the annual league meeting to order on Dec. 9, 1932 at the Farragut Hotel in Knoxville, Tenn. Georgia’s Dr. Sanford announced that 13 institutions west and south of the Appalachian Mountains were reorganizing as the Southeastern Conference. Members of the new league included Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute, Florida, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mississippi A&M, University of the South, Tennessee, Tulane and Vanderbilt.

The Southern Conference continued with membership of 10 institutions including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, VMI, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. The second major shift occurred some 20 years later. By 1952, the Southern Conference included 17 colleges and universities. Another split occurred when seven schools including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest departed to form the Atlantic Coast Conference which began play in 1953. The revamped Southern Conference included members The Citadel, Davidson, Furman, George Washington, Richmond, VMI, Virginia Tech, Washington & Lee, West Virginia and William & Mary. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that includes 12 institutions and a footprint that spans five states: Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, Chattanooga, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Samford, Western Carolina and Wofford.

Coaches and Administrators The Southern Conference has also been a breeding ground for some of college athletics’ most recognized coaches and administrators. Legendary basketball coaches Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Everett Case of North Carolina State both worked the sidelines in the Southern Conference. Rupp guided the Wildcats to a 30-5 mark during the 1931 and 1932 seasons. Yet, for all his coaching accomplishments, Rupp never led Kentucky to a Southern Conference tournament championship. Case mentored the Wolfpack to six consecutive Southern Conference Tournament championships from 1947 through 1952. Lefty Driesell coached Davidson to three Southern Conference Tournament championships in 1966, 1968 and 1969. Driesell also won the league’s Coach of the Year award four straight times from 1963 through 1966. Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins earned league Coach of the Year honors three times in the late ’70s and early ’80s while at Appalachian State and is now the head coach at the College of Charleston. Terry Holland saw his basketball coaching career take off at Davidson when he returned to his alma mater in 1970. Holland was honored as the Southern Conference Coach of the Year for three consecutive seasons from 1970-72 and led the Wildcats to the conference tournament title and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 1970. J. Dallas Shirley, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, spent 21 years as the assistant to the commissioner and supervisor of officials in the Southern Conference. He also served as president of the International Association Basketball Officials and the United States Olympic Basketball Committee. The legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant got his coaching start in the Southern Conference as he guided the Maryland Terrapins in 1945. Another famous Southern Conference football coach is the late Frank Howard of Clemson, who guided the Tigers as a league member from 1940-52. The incomparable Howard won 69 Southern Conference games. The Southern Conference has been represented on the sidelines at five Super Bowls in recent years. Bobby Ross, who piloted the San Diego Chargers to the 1996 Super Bowl, was the head coach at The Citadel from 1973-77. Former Buffalo Bills head coach Marv Levy directed William & Mary from 1964-68. He was succeeded at William & Mary by Lou Holtz. William & Mary competed in the Southern Conference from 1936-77.
