Beth Alford-Sullivan is one of only a few female head coaches in the male-dominated profession of track and field head coaches. She has been at Penn State for 10 years (7 years as the women’s head coach, 3 years as men’s & women’s head coach) and before that was an assistant coach at Stanford. In this insightful interview from FloTrack, she talks about the challenges of her job and the transition that took place when Penn State combined their men’s and women’s programs and she was the head coach for both. Watch the video below and visit Flotrack to see two more interviews with Sullivan, on “Special Moments at PSU” and “Getting Started as a Coach”.
