Doug Case enters his sixth season as an assistant coach with the University of Arkansas cross country and track and field teams.  He is charged with working with the Razorback sprinters, relay teams and pole vault and is starting his 22nd year of coaching at the collegiate level.

Since arriving in Fayetteville, following an extended stay at Northern Iowa, Case has revitalized the Arkansas sprint teams and led his student-athletes to four NCAA Championships, including the first ever championships in both the pole vault and indoor 4x400-meter relay, and 67 All-America honors.  Case’s guidance has helped Razorbacks claim 15 Southeastern Conference individual championships and grab 11 of the last 15 SEC league titles in cross country and track & field.

The crowning achievement of Case’s time with Arkansas came during the 2013 indoor track season when he and longtime friend and mentor Chris Bucknam led the Razorbacks to the NCAA Championship.  Together for XX years, the duo followed up the win with a third-place finish at the outdoor meet which led to the University’s first John McDonnell Program of the Year award.

Case’s work at Arkansas has not gone unnoticed to his colleagues as he earned the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association (USTFCCCA) South Central regional assistant coach of the year in 2012.

Along with his ability to teach his protégés to race and compete, Case has also put his stamp on the Razorback record books.  In five years, Arkansas student-athletes have etched their name into the all-time Razorback marks in the events that Case oversees 46 times and set the all-time collegiate record in the indoor 4x400-meter relay.

One of his current star pupils is pole vaulter Andrew Irwin who in two seasons at Arkansas has won two NCAA championships and three SEC titles in four attempts.  Case’s work with Irwin has won the Mt. Ida, Ark., native two All-America honors, SEC Freshman Field Athlete of the Year awards both indoor and out, the SEC Field Athlete of the Year for the 2012 outdoor season and USTFCCCA South Central Region Field Athlete of the Year accolades.

Prior to joining his mentor on the Arkansas coaching staff, Case was a very successful coach at Northern Iowa, leading his student-athletes to two individual national championships, 43 All-America honors and 68 national championship qualifiers. His athletes dominated the Missouri Valley Conference with 97 individual and relay championships in his time with the Panthers and set school records in 10 events.

While Case is proud of the efforts of all of his former competitors, 800-meter runner Tyler Mulder and pole vaulter Jacob Pauli hold a special place with Case after the tandem won national titles in 2008 and 2001, respectively.  Mulder earned his title with a spectacular 1:49.20 at the national meet and Pauli went on to finish third at the 2007 USA Outdoor Championship.

Case’s career path saw him make a stop at Arkansas State before taking the head coaching position at Drake and eventually Northern Iowa.  At Arkansas State, the Red Wolves won nine Sun Belt Conference titles and Case recruited 52 outdoor and 49 indoor individual conference champions, four All-Americans, seven Olympic Trials qualifiers and three Olympians.  His three-year stint at Drake included three school records and a ninth-place finish by the distance medley relay at the NCAA Championship.

A former Northern Iowa sprinter, Case set eight school records between 1982 and 1986 and was an all-conference performer. A native of Marshalltown, Iowa, Case received his bachelor’s degree from UNI in 1987 and served as a graduate assistant with the Panthers the next two seasons. He and his wife, Chris, have four children: Kelsey, Lauren, Cameron and Regan.
