WELCOME Congratulations on owning the 2011/12 Golden Eagle Media Guide. For the first time in the university‘s history, each athletics team‘s information, including schedules, past seasons results and rosters will all be compiled into one guide for players, parents and fans alike to keep as a memory of the greatest years of an athlete‘s life. My name is Robert Vincent. I am a junior sports administration student, and men‘s soccer player at UC. I understand how important it is to be able to keep track of athletes‘ greatest performances, seasons and accolades as a player, and how information can be so easily lost track of over time, as I became all too well aware of in my research for this media guide. My intent for this media guide is for it to be continued for years to come in an effort to keep a record of UC athletics, and monitor the rising talent that UC produces year in year out. I would like to thank a few different people for putting me in a position to write this media guide, and generally for giving me the chance to be where I am today. Firstly I would like to thank my family for their continued support and inspiration. From a very early age, they provided me with encouragement in soccer, but more importantly in my schoolwork. They taught me the importance of prioritizing education, but all the while driving hours upon hours every week to take me to soccer practice and games. Throughout my life, they have always been there and I would not be playing and studying in the U.S. if it were not for them. I would like to thank Chad Duernberger for giving me the opportunity to continue my soccer career in the Charleston soccer family. I had not played soccer for almost a year due to injury prior to joining UC, and he had only seen some short video footage of me playing, but he still took a huge gamble by offering me the chance to sign at UC, and I am very appreciative of that. I am enjoying my soccer more than ever at the moment, and hopefully there are plenty more years of success to come. Finally, I would like to thank Michelle Wells and the sports administration department for unlocking my creative side, and giving me the motivation to create this media guide. During my time with the SPAD program, I have been in a number of Michelle‘s classes, and I am enjoying my studies like never before. The hands-on approach to classes has kept me busy, interested but more importantly happy, and I know it is preparing me for a life after soccer. So, good luck to all of the athletic teams this year. Hopefully, next year‘s edition will contain plenty of 2011 and 2012 conference championships, and who knows, maybe a national championship.

ABOUT UC Located in the heart of West Virginia‘s capital city, the University of Charleston (UC) is an independent, coeducational, comprehensive university serving approximately 1,500 students from 34 states and 34 countries. The University offers a range of academic undergraduate majors, three master‘s degrees, and a doctorate degree in pharmacy. The University‘s mission is to educate each student for a life of productive work, enlightened living, and community involvement. In 1995, the University successfully developed an outcomes-based curriculum known as Learning Your Way, which has received national recognition. This unique curriculum allows students to create an individualized educational plan, with the guidance of their academic advisors, to meet their ultimate career goals. As a result, 33% of UC students graduate in less than four years (2008 and 2009 average). U.S. News & World Report ranked UC among the best colleges in the South, and first among all baccalaureate colleges in West Virginia – a distinction the University has held three out of the last four years. In addition, UC was one of only six schools nationwide added to the 2010 edition of the Princeton Review‘s ―The Best 371 Colleges,‖ which features the country‘s best institutions for undergraduate education. UC‘s growth and momentum is evident across campus. Seven of the eleven buildings on the UC campus have been built in the last decade. Four new residence halls house 700 students in an attractive, modern campus community. The School of Pharmacy opened in 2006, the Morrison Fitness Center in 2007, the Graduate School of Business located in downtown Charleston in 2008, and East Hall and parking garage in 2010. The first class of UC pharmacists and MBAL (Master of Business Administration and Leadership) professionals graduated in May 2010. The University of Charleston is committed to the local community and the state. The University has a $75 million annual impact on the Charleston community. The University has partnered with the Kanawha County School Board and the City of Charleston on projects benefiting the institution, as well as the community. In addition, the University routinely hosts community events such as Symphony Sunday, Wine and All That Jazz, and Blues, Brews, and BBQs.

HISTORY The University of Charleston was founded by the Southern Methodist denomination in 1888 as Barboursville Seminary in Barboursville, WV, and became a college in 1889. In 1901, it was renamed Morris Harvey College in honor of a prominent donor. During the Great Depression, the college moved to Charleston to take advantage of the larger metropolitan area. As a result of the merger between the Methodist church North and South, the college disaffiliated from the denomination and Morris Harvey College became independent in 1942. From 1935 to 1947, the college was located in downtown Charleston, holding classes in several separate buildings. During these years, the college grew steadily, in part because of a merger with Kanawha Junior College and an affiliation with the Mason College of Fine Arts and Music. Recognizing the need for a unified campus, in 1947 construction of the present facilities began on the south bank of the Kanawha River. The Board of Trustees changed the name from Morris Harvey College to the University of Charleston on December 13, 1978. Today, the University still benefits from its location in the dynamic capital city and from the beauty of West Virginia's hills. Proximity to the seat of government, to the state's largest medical, commercial, and financial centers and to major research and manufacturing facilities provides excellent opportunities for experiential learning. The University serves the community as a focal point for numerous intellectual, scientific, cultural, athletic, and civic events. These interactions between the University and the community are vital to the achievement of the University's mission.

PRESIDENT WELCH Dr. Edwin H. Welch is a native of Maryland and earned degrees from Western Maryland College, Boston University School of Theology, and Boston University Graduate School. His Ph.D. is in social ethics and he is an ordained minister in the United Methodist Church. He also studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science and the Harvard Institute for Educational Management. To support his academic studies, Dr. Welch worked in the Executive Office of the President at The White House throughout the tumultuous decade of the 1960s, during the administrations of presidents Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. Dr. Welch has served as a department chair at West Virginia Wesleyan College, an assistant dean at Lebanon Valley College, an academic vice president at Lakeland College, and a provost at Wartburg College. Since 1989, he has been President of the University of Charleston. During Dr. Welch's tenure, the University of Charleston has completed major fundraising campaigns; added its first doctoral program (pharmacy); opened a graduate school of business in downtown Charleston; reinstated football; constructed the sevenstory Clay Tower Building (an information, technology, and science facility), the Robert C. Byrd Center for Pharmacy Education, four residence halls, a parking garage and a fitness center; expanded full-time enrollment; eliminated financial deficits; increased the endowment; initiated a colleague service-learning program; and enacted a wide-ranging transformation of the academic program to an outcomes-based focus called Learning Your Way. Widely recognized as a leader in outcomes-based learning, collaboration in private higher education, and developing a culture of assessment, Dr. Welch is a frequent author and speaker on these topics. For six years, he hosted a weekly public affairs interview program on public television, and he authors periodic op-ed pieces for Charleston newspapers. The Foundation for Independent Higher Education chose him to receive the first-ever Charles L. Foreman Award for Innovation in Private Higher Education. Active in community affairs, Dr. Welch serves on several local boards, including the Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) Health Systems Board, the BB&T Advisory Board of West Virginia, and the Mid-Atlantic Technology Research and Innovation Center Board (MATRIC). In 2007, he was chosen to receive the YMCA‘s ―Spirit of the Valley‖ award for his hard work, leadership and success in making the Kanawha Valley a better place to live and the following year he was selected by The State Journal for ―Who‘s Who in West Virginia.‖ He has also served as president of the Charleston Rotary Club and the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and as chair of the Appalachian College Association. Dr. Welch takes great pride in the ongoing transformation of the University of Charleston into a leader in private higher education.

PRODUCTIVE WORK The University prepares students to contribute to society immediately and throughout their lives. Their work will vary tremendously, but we hope that each graduate will improve his or her world. ―Productive‖ work isn't defined by the acquisition of great material gain for the graduate, but by the positive impact of the work on the graduate's community and world. ENLIGHTENED LIVING College graduates must own a broad range of knowledge to thrive in modern society. Graduates should be scientifically, economically, politically, aesthetically, and culturally literate. They should have a sense of history and shared values, and a commitment to moral purpose and personal character.

ABOUT THE WVIAC Founded in 1924, the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference rates as one of the oldest leagues at the small-college level. The league has 15 member schools, representing 16 sports. The WVIAC moved into the NCAA Division II ranks in 1994 after a long affiliation with the NAIA. The conference was the only one in Division II to place a team in the national quarterfinals in men‘s basketball, football and baseball during the 1998-99 academic year. In 2002 the WVIAC, along with two other conferences, became the first league to earn four bids to the NCAA Division II Men‘s Basketball Championship. Commissioner Barry Blizzard, who has held the post since 1987, led the move into the NCAA. Blizzard, a native of Bramwell, West Virginia, previously served as the athletics director at Bluefield State. The long-time conference chief has served in a variety of national leadership positions, including a stint as president of the Division II Conference Commissioners‘ Association. He is currently the chairman of the NCAA Division II Nominating Committee. Alumni of conference members include West Virginia State‘s Earl Lloyd (the first African-American to play in the National Basketball Association), Pitt Johnstown's John Murtha (former US representative), and Wheeling Jesuit‘s John Beilein (current Michigan men‘s basketball coach). The conference‘s basketball tournament is one of the longest-running events in collegiate hoops; the 73rd annual event was held earlier this year at the Charleston Civic Center. Attendance at the WVIAC tournament ranks among the highest in Division II. The conference also boasts a 10-station radio network for the tournament. Women‘s sports were incorporated into the WVIAC during the 1981-82 academic year as the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Association was absorbed. Currently, women‘s championships are offered in softball, golf, tennis, track, basketball, volleyball, cross country and soccer. Men‘s championships are conducted in football, cross country, soccer, basketball, baseball, golf, tennis and track. The league was recognized by the State Journal as one of ―55 Great Things About West Virginia‖ in the magazine‘s April 2007 edition. The WVIAC is headquartered in Princeton, WV.

ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT

STAFF Tom Nozica Athletic Director/Head Baseball Coach The University of Charleston announced on July 18th that Athletic Director Tom Nozica, a key player in UC‗s athletic department for over 40 years, will retire as athletic director at the end of 2011. He will continue as the UC baseball coach. Nozica, a graduate of The Ohio State University, came to what was then Morris Harvey College(now the University of Charleston) in 1969, after coaching and teaching at Muskingum College in Ohio and Howard University in Washington, D.C. Hired to coach both baseball and soccer, Nozica posted 69 wins as men‘s soccer coach, which is the second-best coaching record in program history. UC dropped men's soccer for two seasons in the early ‗80s and Nozica stayed in the baseball head coaching position. He was named associate athletic director in 1985, and took the head post in April, 1998. He continued to coach UC‘s baseball team, and has amassed more than 630 wins (two years of records from the ‗80s are unaccounted for) and two conference titles as coach. In addition, over 120 of his baseball squad members have won WVIAC academic awards the past two years alone. Nozica's 42-year coaching tenure is believed to be the longest standing coaching career in NCAA Division II history, and is just three years less than that of Joe Paterno at Penn State University. His tenure as AD includes two WVIAC Commissioner's Cups for overall athletic excellence, 23 conference titles, and elite eight appearances in men's soccer and women's basketball . Milestones include the resurrection of the UC football program after a 50-year hiatus, the renovation and renaming of UC Stadium, and renovation of baseball, softball and soccer fields at Watt Powell park and Triana Field. ―Athletics at UC is Tom Nozica,‖ said Dr. Edwin Welch, university president, at a press conference on the morning of the announcement. ―He gets it. Tom represents that balance between encouraging character, appropriate behavior, accountability, and academic success while also pushing students to excel as athletes.‖ Dr. Bren Stevens Associate Athletic Director/Head Volleyball Coach/Senior Women‘s Administrator Stevens, a Charleston graduate, has worked with the university‘s athletics program for 18 years. Her current roles are not limited to being within the UC Athletics Department. In August 2011, she was tabbed as the next vice chair for the NCAA Division II Management Council. She will begin her term on Sept. 1. She replaces Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Commissioner Butch Raymond in the position.

Sherry Winn Compliance Coordinator/Head Women‘s Basketball Coach Intensity is the word which best describes Coach Winn. As an athlete, a student, and a coach, she has always displayed concentrated focus. This focus has led her to numerous awards. As a player, she reached the epitome of all athletics—the Olympic Games. In both 1984 and 1988, she was a member of the United States Team Handball Olympic Team. During her collegiate years, she was an Academic All-American with a 4.0 GPA and a two-time Honorable Mention All-American. She still owns 10 school records at the University of Charleston including most points in a season (682), scoring average (22.7), and the most points in a game (44). In 1993, when her team won the NAIA II National Championship, she was voted Coach of the Year in the Frontier Conference and District 12, as well as honored as the NAIA II National Coach of the Year. She began her coaching career at the University of Minnesota—Morris where she took an eight year losing program and turned it into a winning one in just two seasons. At Montana State University—Northern, her teams compiled an overall record of 139 wins and 20 losses, winning the Frontier Conference five times in a row. The move to the University of Southern Colorado proved to be a difficult one. Once again faced with a program which had not won for years, Coach Winn was eager to do battle. Unfortunately, she was crippled physically and emotionally with chronic pain and discovered her teams could not win without her healthy at the helm. During the ten seasons she has been at the University of Charleston, Coach Winn has created a true sense of team chemistry and positive work ethic claiming an overall record of 224 wins versus only 84 losses. While she is a passionate coach on the sideline, she is equally passionate about her players off the court. The Golden Eagles team GPA has never dipped below 3.2 and every senior who remained with the program has earned a degree from the University of Charleston. Coach Winn also believes in community programs involving her players in several projects throughout the year. Coach Winn is an intense coach who likes to push the phrase ―positive demanding.‖ She believes in pushing her players outside their comfort zones, making them reach seemingly untouchable goals, but always doing this is a positive manner. She will be the first person to reward an athlete with a hug, a slap on the back, or words of congratulations. She will also be the first person to constructively criticize techniques and tactics. ―I believe what is important is not necessarily how many games we win in a season but how far we have traveled in our journey. What is essential is the growth of the people involved in our program. Have they overcome some of their fears? Have they learned to believe in themselves? Have they become more self aware? Have they learned to change their internal dialogue from negative to positive self talk? What I desire is for each one of my players to stretch and to grow and to find a part of themselves they did not know existed.‖

William McDaniel Sports Information Director McDaniel's duties include overseeing the daily operations of the sports information office, maintaining the athletics website, promoting the 15 Division II sports teams and managing all home sporting events. He will also oversee the athletic department's marketing initiatives ranging from sales to sponsorship execution. In his first year at UC the sports information department has grown to include a wide-range of opportunities for fans to follow Golden Eagle athletics. Charleston has added live stat coverage for most sports, while offering live video and audio for football and basketball. In March of 2010, McDaniel launched the newly redesigned www.ucgoldeneagles.com as the in-depth home to University of Charleston athletics, which logged one million views in its first 12 months. He is an active member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSida) and also of the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA). In March of 2011, NACMA recognized one of Charleston's radio ad spots for basketball with a silver "Best of" award in the radio commercial division. William, a native of Winfield, W.V., previously worked in the sports information office at Frostburg State University, located in Frostburg, Md., as Assistant SID during the Fall 2007 thru Spring 2009 athletic seasons. He earned a bachelor‘s degree in marketing from Marshall University in 2007 and a master‘s degree in business administration (MBA) in 2008 from Frostburg State.

UC SPORTS & FITNESS CENTER PLAN People agree, UC has changed drastically in a short period of time. However, there is still work to be done. The renovation of Triana Field for men‘s baseball and men‘s and women‘s soccer, along with the new turf, locker rooms and skybox at UC Stadium, has given UC some of the best athletic facilities in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The next project to take priority in The Vision: UC campaign is the construction of a Sports & Fitness Center on the UC campus. The center will be home to the men‘s and women‘s basketball teams and the women‘s volleyball team. It will also serve as a multi-purpose facility for the use of eleven other varsity athletic teams and the entire student body. UC‘s current facilities in Eddie King Gym and Gorman Physical Education Building are antiquated and some of the worst in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Built in 1948, it currently is the oldest structure on campus. Eddie King Gym is not handicapped-accessible and has no air conditioning. As coaches bring potential studentathletes to campus many are let down by the condition of the facilities in which they will train, compete, and learn to become leaders. In the tough competitive world we live, it is hard to recruit the best and the brightest with the current facilities. It is essential that we replace the 60-year-old gymnasium with a new arena and new beginnings. It is essential UC has the best facilities possible to recruit and educate the best possible students it can attain. It is essential that UC keeps its promise to transform the entire campus for all constituencies, including one of its most important – studentathletes.

45


Although the Sports & Fitness Center is aimed at serving UC‘s entire student body, there is one student constituency that will see enhanced benefit. Currently, one third of UC‘s student population is made up of studentathletes. Statistics show that these student-athletes become some of UC‘s best and brightest performers, on and off the court. Student-athletes are more engaged, provide leadership on campus, are more likely to stay at UC for their entire college career, and become productive members of the community. This important constituency must not be ignored. Plans are to accomplish the renovation in two phases. Phase I will address the Eddie King Gymnasium, which will house the arena, locker rooms, and become the flagship structure on campus. In Phase I, the current Eddie King structure will be demolished and rebuilt. We will expand the new structure into the existing parking lot in order to provide a dramatic entrance. The court, which currently runs east and west, will be flipped to north and south orientation and be below ground level. As fans walk into the new facility they will look down onto the court. Locker rooms will be situated below the grand entrance via a walk-way under the stands from the court. A walking track will be installed above and around the seating for the arena. New concession areas will be placed on either side of the facility and be part of the social atmosphere in the arena. Phase II will address the Gorman Physical Education Building. In Phase II, the current facility will be dramatically renovated. UC‘s athletic training facilities will be upgraded, the auxiliary gymnasiums will be expanded to provide more space for summer/community basketball and volleyball camps, racquetball courts will be installed, the aquatic center will be opened up with a new entrance and view from the gymnasium entrance, and office space for coaching staff will be constructed. Finally, in Phase II, the new arena and the Gorman Physical Education Building will be tied into the current Morrison Fitness Center to make one grand facility. By tying all three structures into one it will make room for construction of a climbing wall for increased activity options for all students. Phase I Cost: Phase II Cost: Total:

$18,500,000 $ 7,500,000 $26,000,000

MEN’S BASKETBALL


2010-11 SEASON REVIEW 2010 saw the introduction of a new look Golden Eagles Men‘s Basketball team. New head coach Mark Downey brought in a number of fresh faces to accompany those left behind after Greg White moved on. Downey brought with him a brand new style of play which UC struggled to get to grips with early on in the campaign, but as the season progressed, Downey‘s men went from strength to strength and put in a fantastic end of the season effort which took them into the conference tournament on a high. In the history of the program, the UC faithful have witnessed some crucial and historic games, but not many will compare to the night of Tuesday, March 1st. The first round of the Conference Tournament saw a Davis & Elkins side, who had already been trounced by UC just 4 weeks earlier, visit the Eddie King Gym, hoping to cause an upset. And they seemed on track until a rapturous crowd got behind to drag UC back into the game, into overtime and onto victory. After the game, the fans joined the team in prayer for a very touching moment of silence. UC in Local rivals West Virginia State proved to be the bogey team for UC though, and the Golden Eagles‘ season fizzled out at the Quarter-Final stage. However, as the 2011-12 season beckons for UC, Mark Downey can further build the program at his alma mater. It is exciting times for UC men‘s basketball.

The class of 2011 each played huge roles, and left there names in UC‘s rich basketball history. Left to Right: Ibu Marone, John White, Jon Liggins, James Eversley.

* Tentative roster as of August 2011. Subject to change. Mark Downey Head Men‘s Basketball Coach Mark Downey enters his second season as the Head Men‘s Basketball Coach at his alma mater after taking over from Greg White who resigned in April 2010 after a 19-11 record in his final season. Coach Downey played for Coach White at Charleston from 1992-95 where he was a two-year captain and helped the Golden Eagles win the WVIAC Tournament Championship in 1993. Since leaving Charleston, Mark Downey has been all over the country and coached on every level. He has spent six years as a head coach, four at the Division II level and two at the Junior College level. Of his nineteen players that finished their eligibility during those six seasons, all have graduated or are on track to graduate in the following year. The same success has also come on the court. Coach Downey has had five of his six teams compete in post season conference tournaments. In four of those tournaments, Downey‘s teams have played in the finals and three of those teams have won the championship. Mark Downey has a 14-2 record in post season conference tournaments. He has also been honored with six different coach of the year awards in his six seasons as a head coach. Coach Downey‘s players have been awarded degrees but they have also forwarded their careers on the professional level. Currently, fourteen of Downey‘s former players are actively playing professional basketball, and twenty-seven of his former players have played in the pros after they left his program. Downey has coached 24 All-Conference players, Five Conference Players of the Year, Four Conference Tournament Most Valuable Players, and Four Freshmen of the Year.

Before returning to UC, Coach Downey spent the previous four seasons as the Head Men‘s Basketball Coach at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, AR. Downey inherited a program in 2006 that had won just eight conference games the previous three seasons. That would all change as Mark Downey and the Tech program began rewriting the record books at the Division II School. Downey‘s overall record at ATU was 77-43 improving his team‘s record each year that he was at Tech, winning two GSC Tournament titles, one GSC regular season title and advancing to the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament on two occasions. During his four year tenure at Arkansas Tech, Downey enjoyed his best season in 2009-2010 leading the Wonder Boys to a 30-2 record while capturing the GSC Men‘s Basketball Tournament Title for the second straight year. Arkansas Tech won their first twenty-five games of the season which was a school record. The Wonder Boys captured the GSC regular season title for the first time in school history and made their second straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Arkansas Tech finished the year ranked #1 in the country, a spot that they held for eight out of fifteen weeks during the regular season. The Wonder Boys also held the #1 ranking in the South Region for the entire season allowing them, for the first time in program history, to host the NCAA South Regional Tournament. The Wonder Boys would be upset in the Second Round by Valdosta State who won the Region title and advanced to the Elite Eight. Over the last three years at ATU, Downey led the Wonder Boys to a 71-22 overall record and a 30-12 mark in Gulf South Conference regular season play. For the ATU accomplishments in 2009-10, Downey was named the South Region Coach of the Year and the GSC West Division Coach of the Year. His 2008-09 Tech team finished the year 23-9, won the first GSC Tournament Title in school history, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time as well. ATU would win their first round game in the NCAA Tournament, another first for the record books. Coach Downey moved to Arkansas Tech from the University of New Orleans where he was an assistant coach for Head Coach Monte Towe. Prior to spending five seasons at UNO, Downey spent two years as the head coach at Independence Community College in Independence, KS. While at Independence, he led the Pirates to a 50-20 record and was named the Region IV and Kansas Basketball Coaches Association Coach of the Year. In addition, he led ICC to the Jayhawk Eastern Conference title and a Region VI championship beating the #1 team in the country in the finals. Downey also led the school to the Region VI title game in 2001. Before assuming the head coaching role at Independence, Downey spent one season (1998-99) at ICC as an assistant on Chris Jans‘ staff. Prior to working at Independence, Downey spent two seasons as a graduate assistant coach for Greg White at Marshall University, where he earned a Master of Science in athletic administration. While at Marshall, Downey helped land two top 30 recruiting classes in the country as the Herd won the 1997 Southern Conference North Division Championship. That championship Marshall Team was seconds away from advancing the NCAA Tournament losing to Tennessee-Chattanooga on the final possession of the game. Tennessee-Chattanooga would go on to the Sweet Sixteen that year after winning the Southern Conference Tournament. Before coming to Marshall, Downey began his coaching career at Barton College in 1995-96 working for now Newberry College Head Coach, Dave Davis. Downey, who graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1995, was a standout player at Charleston where he played his final two seasons after transferring from Wheeling Jesuit College (1990-92). At Wheeling Jesuit, Downey was an All-WVIAC performer and holds the school record for three-pointers made in a season (111). At Charleston, Mark was a two year captain and won the student-athlete award all three seasons he attended UC. As a high school player at St. Francis High School in Morgantown, Downey averaged 37.6 points per game as a senior in 1989-90 and was a twotime First Team All-State selection. He was also runner-up for the West Virginia High School Player of the Year. Mark Richmond Assistant Men‘s Basketball Coach Mark Richmond begins his second season with the University of Charleston men‘s basketball program, where he serves as the top assistant to head coach Mark Downey. Richmond came to Charleston after spending two seasons as an assistant coach for NCAA Division I program Centenary College in Shreveport, LA. At Centenary, Richmond assisted head coach Greg Gary in all aspects of the program including recruiting, on-court coaching, organizing and administering summer camps, monitoring the team‘s strength and conditioning program, and assisting with all the general day-to-day operations for the Gents, who competed in the Summit League. Prior to his time at Centenary, Richmond served as head manager for head coach Bob Huggins at West Virginia University. He graduated Cum Laude from WVU in May of 2008 with a Bachelor‘s Degree in Physical Education-Athletic Coaching Education. Nate Barner

*Maroon Bold represents home fixtures

I'm a competitor and I don't want to lose a football game. Realistically, I understand we're going to have some adversity and my big thing is we've got to put ourselves in a position in the fourth quarter to win a game and then in the fourth quarter finish, not turn the ball over and not give up the big play. If we play smart, play fast and play physical we'll have an opportunity to be successful. Head Coach – Pat Kirkland

* Tentative roster as of August 2011. Subject to change.

COACHING STAFF Pat Kirkland Head Football Coach Kirkland replaces Tony DeMeo who retired in February 2011 after six years at UC. He inherits a football team that finished 6-5 in 2010 and ranked No. 10 nationally in rushing yards per game (213.1). A native of Akron, Ohio, Kirkland has served on the coaching staff at West Virginia University for the past five seasons, most recently as the recruiting operations coordinator. During his tenure with the Mountaineers, he also coached the tight ends, fullbacks, defensive secondary and outside linebackers. WVU compiled a 49-16 overall record with a 25-10 conference mark, winning Big East Conference championships in 2007 and 2010, and bowl games in 2006 (Gator), 2007 (Fiesta) and 2008 (Meineke Car Care). Before his stop in Morgantown, Kirkland coached at Glenville State from 2000-06. He held the title of defensive coordinator and secondary coach from 2001-06. In his last year the Pioneers ranked first in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) and eighth nationally in total defense and held opponents to under 15 points per game. ―Coach Kirkland has excelled as an NCAA Division I coach over the past five years, but he also has extensive experience coaching in the WVIAC, which will benefit our student athletes,‖ says UC Director of Athletic Tom Nozica. ―He will help us continue our recent history of winning at UC.‖ Kirkland also spent two years as the secondary coach at Muskingum College (1998-99). He had four allconference players in the secondary over the two-year stint. He received his bachelor‘s and master‘s degrees in education from Muskingum College. He and his wife, Sarah, had their first child, Sadie, this past summer. George Shehl

COMING SOON

WOMEN’S GOLF The University of Charleston announced, on May 23rd 2011, the addition of women's golf as the 15th sport sponsored by the Golden Eagles athletic department. The program planned to begin competition in Fall 2011, but plans have been put back one year. UC will begin recruiting golfers for its squad immediately, and will be coached by Jim Jamieson, PGA tour winner and NCAA All-American at Oklahoma State. Charleston's men's and women's teams will both use Edgewood Country Club as their home course. The University administration is excited about both the addition of the team and its leadership. ―The University of Charleston has been actively seeking ways to increase opportunities for our women to participate in intercollegiate athletics. We are thrilled to add women‘s golf to our list of varsity sports. We‘ve found the ideal coach in Jim Jamieson. Jim is a veteran of the PGA tour, having placed in the top five several times in the Masters and PGA Championship Tournaments. Our women golfers are definitely fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such a personable coach, and one who has had so much success in their sport.‖ Interested student athletes are encouraged to contact head coach Jim Jamieson at jimjamieson@ucwv.edu.

COACHING STAFF Ray Loeser Head Softball Coach The University of Charleston announced on August 11th 2011, the hiring of head coach Raymond Loeser. Loeser comes to Charleston after four seasons as the Assistant Coach at Arkansas Tech in Russellville, Ark. where he was responsible for recruiting and working with the pitching staff. ATU won three Gulf South Conference West Division Titles during his tenure, while the pitching staff combined for 139 wins, 27 saves, 103 complete games, 63 shutouts, 1,122 strikeouts and an overall earned run average of 2.34. Last season the Golden Suns were ranked as high as third in the South Region. Prior to his time at Arkansas Tech, Loeser spent two seasons with St. Petersburg College where he helped lead the team to a No. 17 national ranking along with coaching 17 All-Conference selections and one All-American, while accumulating a 222-123 record. He began his coaching career in 2001 as an assistant at Mississippi State University where he assisted with pitchers for four seasons. Loeser inherits a Golden Eagles squad that will be looking to replace one of the top pitchers in the nation, but returns a solid nucleus of players in the field. Last season, the Golden Eagles finished with a 27-23 overall record and sixth in the WVIAC at 11-8.

SPORTS ADMINISTRATION OVERVIEW OF PROGRAM The sports management industry has become an increasingly attractive field for young professionals. Sports equate to big business around the world. Because sports is a business, the Bachelor of Science in Sports Administration (SPAD) program is housed in the Department of Business. The Sports Administration major consists of a core of business classes and also includes two concentrations from which students select additional courses in an effort to specialize their curriculum. • The management concentration prepares students for leadership roles in sports. • The communication concentration allows students to take classes that prepare them for careers in sports information, journalism, and sports communication. Students will be required to take a core of business classes in addition to the course work that they will complete in their respective track that they select. At the University of Charleston, the Sports Administration program blends liberal learning, business, and sports administration courses in a curriculum designed to prepare graduates for positions in areas such as college and school athletic programs, professional sports organizations, sports sponsorship and marketing agencies, and multipurpose facilities. PROGRAM FOCUS The University of Charleston‘s Sports Administration program focuses on two areas: • Utilizing current technology to expand the learning environment in an experiential way to develop increased awareness of the uses of technology in the sports industry and to apply them. • Creating assignments that mimic the types of projects students will find when working in the sports industry. DOUBLE MAJORS The design of the Sports Administration program encourages students to complete a second major or a minor in another field through judicious selection of elective courses. For example, a student may decide to obtain a second major in Communications or may elect to obtain the Independent Minor in Business or other areas.
