Abstract

The issue that this paper addresses is how the college coach has abandoned the roles of educator and liaison between athletics and academics. The current era of college was examined using academic analysis, interviews with college administrators and academics connected to college athletics, and literature regarding the topic. The conclusion reached is that the college coach is in dire need of reform both professionally and pedagogically and that for the college coach to justify an existence in academics that is not solely for entertainment, college coach must reform their profession with academics values.
