SAN ANTONIO — UTSA Director of Track & Field/Cross Country Aaron Fox announced Tuesday that he has promoted Distance/Cross Country Assistant Coach Scott Slade to associate head coach.

“Scott has been integral part of our success the last five years and he’s done a tremendous job with our distance programs,” Fox said. “This promotion obviously is well-deserved and I’m looking forward to him continuing to be a big part of our success for many years to come.”

Slade will begin his sixth season this fall, tutoring both the men’s and women’s distance and cross country programs.

The Buffalo, N.Y., native has helped UTSA win the last five Southland Conference Indoor Championships to go along with outdoor titles in 2008 and ’10. He has led the Roadrunners men to consecutive third-place finishes at the Southland Cross Country Championships and also coached three all-conference performers and a pair of NCAA All-South Central Region honorees during that time. Slade also guided Dana Mecke to the Southland Championship and all-region accolades in 2008 and, during his first year in the Alamo City, Larry Brooks became the first distance runner in school history to earn indoor and outdoor All-America accolades and compete at the USA Track & Field (USATF) Championships.

He is Level III trained in distance events by the USATF, currently is the NCAA South Central Men's Cross Country Region Representative for the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association and is a member of the NCAA Division I Cross Country Executive Committee.

An All-America distance runner at the University of Buffalo, Slade earned his bachelor’s degree in exercise science in 1987. Two years later, Slade received his master’s in Health, Physical Education & Recreation from Adams State College.
