UO claims the Duck coach who put 3 students in hospital is “faculty”

More national publicity for UO, from CBS Sports:

The unregulated world of strength coaches and college football’s killing season

When three Oregon football players were hospitalized in January following a strenuous workout, they were being led by a strength coach certified from a track and field coaches association.

For a $245 fee, the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) offers a 21-hour strength training course to become a certified NCAA strength coach in any sport. By comparison, the widely-used Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCA) requires 30 times as much training — a 640-hour certification process.

According to the NCAA, that track certification was all that was needed by Oregon football strength coach Irele Oderinde, who was suspended for one month due to the January workout.

… Oregon declined to provide a copy of Oderinde’s resume to CBS Sports since it is part of his faculty record. Oregon said faculty records cannot be released without an employee’s written permission, and Oderinde did not grant permission.

You can’t make this shit up.

    Prof. Oderinde sure was getting a great ROI on his $245 education investment.

    Perhaps UO should clone this program. A great tecruiting device for enrollment management!

    I hope these new profs start showing up at senate meetings, faculty lounge, etc. etc.

    Perhaps a new research seminar?

    Ah, even old blood flows as spring blooms!

    This coaches as faculty thing should be something the Faculty Senate could weigh in on. Seems the faculty has a say on the faculty. Just sayin’.
