    Jeff Kent joined the Arkansas Razorback women’s cross country and track and field staff in September 2009. He is in his fifth season as the director of women’s cross country and track and field operations. 

    His day-to-day duties include overseeing the program’s equipment needs, travel arrangements, meet management at Arkansas’ home events and the coordination of details in the coaches’ recruiting efforts.

    Kent also acts as an on-campus recruiting coordinator for official visits and is in charge of coordinating official visits to Arkansas’ campus for the distance program. He has also gained certification as a USATF Level 2 Track and Field Coach for Endurance.

    Prior to his move to Fayetteville, Kent served as Delta State’s graduate assistant women’s cross country coach during the 2007-09 seasons. He was responsible for recruiting, budgeting, scheduling, fund raising and academic supervision, as well as other aspects of the program.

    A native of Valparaiso, Ind., Kent received his bachelor’s degree in health and sport studies from the University of Iowa and his master’s degree in health, physical education and recreation from Delta State University in Cleveland, Miss. He was a member of the Iowa Hawkeye cross country and track and field teams during the 2004-07 seasons, posting what was the sixth-best indoor 5,000-meter time in school history and competed in multiple NCAA Championships.
