After guiding the Mississippi State men’s team to its third-highest point total in school history at the 2019 NCAA Outdoor Championships earlier this month, Chris Woods has been named head coach of the Bulldog men’s and women’s track and field teams, Director of Athletics John Cohen announced on Friday. “We conducted a national search, and the best fit for our next head coach was right here in Starkville,” Cohen said. “I am excited for Chris and the future of Mississippi State track and field. Chris knows exactly what it means to be a Bulldog having lettered and served as assistant coach and interim head coach at Mississippi State. Our program continues to produce many of the world’s best, All-Americans and champions at a record pace. Chris understands what it takes for our program to continue the path to championships and develop our student-athletes to the fullest. My sincere congratulations goes out to Chris, Wanda, Trace and Cade.”  “This is one of the happiest days of my life,” Woods said. “It’s an honor to serve my alma mater and a dream come true. I would like to thank my family who stuck with me through the process. – Read More
