CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - After five years at the helm of the Coe College Track and Field programs, Head Coach Aaron Carley announced his resignation on Thursday.
Carley has resigned to explore a new professional endeavor in Wisconsin. During his time at Coe, Melissa Alger earned a pair of All-American honors in the discus under Carley. The Kohawks also had 20 Iowa Conference Track and Field Champions during his tenure, while 48 different Kohawks earned All-Iowa Conference honors.
"While we are excited for Coach Carley and his new role and know that he will find much success, we are also sad to see him leave after having served our team and program since 2013," Vice President for Facilities and Operations Larry Lee said. "We wish Aaron and his family best of luck in the future."
This past season, junior Chris Hawkins (Chicago, Ill./St. Ignatius) was named the USTFCCCA Central Region Indoor Field Athlete of the Year. During Carley's time at Coe, the Kohawks broke five school records on the men's side and eight records for the women.
A national search for a new coach is underway.
