Adam Hudson, who has coached All-America hurdlers in each of his first four years at UTSA, begins his fifth season as an assistant coach for the Roadrunners this spring. He tutors the program’s 400-meter sprinters, hurdlers, 1,600m relay team and women's high jumpers and multi-event competitors.

Last season saw the UTSA men successfully defend their Conference USA Outdoor Championship, as Keyunta Hayes swept both hurdles events for the second consecutive campaign. He and Jurmarcus Shelvin went on to earn honorable mention All-America accolades in the 400-meter hurdles. The outdoor achievements followed yet another successful indoor season. The Roadrunners finished second at the league's indoor meet and were led by Hayes, who raced to victory in the 60m hurdles. Meanwhile, the women were led by Whitney Flannel, who matched UTSA's 19-year-old record in the high jump and became the program's first All-American in eight years following her 11th-place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. That came on the heels of a C-USA title in her specialty event.

Hudson helped lead the UTSA men to the 2014 C-USA Outdoor Championship in their first season in the league and the women's finished second at the indoor meet. Hayes earned first-team All-America laurels in the 400-meter hurdles by virtue of his sixth-place performance at the NCAA Outdoor Championships and his athletes accounted for three outdoor conference crowns (Hayes swept the 110m and 400m hurdles/1,600m relay). In fact, four Roadrunners placed among the top five in the 400m hurdles at the league's outdoor meet (first through third and fifth place), which essentially clinched the team title for the Roadrunners.

Hudson helped guide the Roadrunners men to their eighth consecutive indoor conference title in their lone appearance at the Western Athletic Conference Championships, while the women finished second and just missed their first league crown since 1994. Joshua Smith raced to second-team All-America honors in the 400m hurdles at the NCAA Outdoor Championships and the indoor 1,600m relay of Nate Brunette, Darryl Wyrick, Smith and Christopher Hall raced to a conference title.

Hudson helped lead the UTSA men to a Southland Conference indoor/outdoor championship sweep in 2012 and the women recorded their best outdoor finish (second) in 15 years. He also guided Hayes to outdoor All-America honors in the 400-meter hurdles. Hayes raced to a fourth-place finish in the national final (second-best national performance in program annals), won a total of three Southland Championships (60m hurdles/110m hurdles/400m hurdles), set a pair of outdoor school records and advanced to the semifinals of the United States Olympic Trials. In fact, the Roadrunners claimed the top three spots in the league’s 400m hurdles final, which is believed to be a first in conference history, and those three — Hayes, Wyrick and Smith — advanced to the NCAA Outdor Championships along with the squad’s 1,600m relay squad. All told, 12 of his athletes (seven women/five men) scored points in Southland competition in his first year in the Alamo City, including the five men who combined for 14 all-conference certificates.

Hudson sprent the previous seven years as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Texas State. He coached the Bobcats’ multi-event athletes and jumpers in addition to serving as the program’s recruiting coordinator.

He mentored four Southland Conference award winners, 16 Southland Champions and four Texas State record holders in the combined events during his stay in San Marcos. Hudson also led three high jumpers to NCAA Championships berths.

After starting his coaching career in 2002 as Texas State’s head men’s cross country coach, he then was San Marcos Academy’s head track & field/cross country coach for two years.

A four-year letterwinner for the Bobcats, Hudson was a team captain his final two years. He won the 2002 Southland Championship in the 400-meter hurdles, earned all-league honors seven times and set a Texas State record in the 400m hurdles.

He received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and mathematics in 2002 and added a master’s degree in sports administration five years later.

The Bay City native is a Level II USA Track & Field (USATF) coach in jumps and combined events, as well as an instructor for Level I USATF coaches’ education.

Hudson is married to the former Eloise Martin and the couple has a daughter, Cora, and a son, Wyatt.
