PITTSBURGH -- The next step in the development of Point Park University's new track and field teams has arrived. The Pioneers' athletic department has announced that Kelly Parsley is the first coach of the school's men's and women's track and field teams.
Kelly, a native of Greensburg, Pa., has been a collegiate head coach for 12 years, most recently at NAIA Lindenwood University-Belleville in St. Louis, Mo. His first day on the job was Jan. 14, 2014, and he will begin immediately to build the direction of the Point Park men's and women's track and field teams, which will begin competition for first time in the 2014-15 school year.
Parsley's coaching resume has covered various levels of athletics including NAIA, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and high school. He is no stranger to starting a brand-new athletic program, which he did at both Lindenwood-Belleville (Mo.) and Goldey Beacom (Del.) College.
