Ferrell-Edmonson To Retire
May 15, 2007
LAS VEGAS - UNLV women's track and field head coach Barbara Ferrell-Edmonson will resign at the end of this season and plans to retire from coaching, the athletics department announced on Tuesday.
Ferrell-Edmonson, who has spent the past five seasons leading the Rebel track program, will coach three Rebel student-athletes at the 2007 NCAA West Regional and then possibly the NCAA Outdoor Championships, if those athletes are to advance.
"We thank Barbara for her service to UNLV these past five years," said athletics director Mike Hamrick. "Rebel track and field has shown that it can be a force on the conference and national levels and we will now conduct a national search to find the person to take the program to that next level."
From 1991-99, Ferrell-Edmonson was at the University of Southern California and became USC's women's track and field head coach in 1992. She became the head coach at UNLV on July 29, 2002, hired by then-athletics director John Robinson.
