Senior Vice President and Athletic Director, Gene Smith’s introduction to the Master of Sports Coaching degree program.

“I saw the new program, Master of Sports Coaching, on twitter today and want to commend you for creating such a valuable program.  I graduated from OSU in ’95 in Exercise Science and wished for a program like this after graduation.  Finding nothing like your program, I instead learned through real life experiences and 20 years later am directing the performance of our Olympic team.  I wish I could require all of our national team coaches to enroll in your program. Congratulations again for launching this program, good luck, and GO BUCKS!”

Scott Schnitzspahn, Ohio State Alumnus and Director of High Performance United States Olympic Committee
