Pioneer of Women's Athletics

Doug Max enters his 32nd year at Colorado State. Then-AD Fum McGraw named him to the CSU staff as head track and field coach on Aug. 23, 1980.

Max is responsible for all athletic facilities, including the McGraw Athletic Center, Moby Arena, Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium and the Jack Christiansen Track, where he spent 19 seasons (1980-99) as head coach. He also works with the university's concessions and game management staffs.

In addition, he oversees the athletic video office as well as CSU's equipment room and its staff. During his tenure in the Rams' athletic administration, he also has coordinated football team travel.

Max has been instrumental in nearly $50 million of athletic facilities enhancements, including the building of the McGraw Center and major renovations of the Rams' football stadium and home track.

Max worked to turn CSU's new athletic facilities, buildings critical to future success, from conception to reality. Max oversaw the construction of the two buildings, a $7 million academic and training center, and $13 million indoor practice facility, both of which opened in the fall of 2009. In 1997, Max served as Colorado State's interim athletic director.

Max joined the administration in May of 1999, when CSU named him assistant AD for facilities and operations. He became an associate AD in 2004. In nearly two decades as head coach at Colorado State, he earned a reputation as one of the country's finest track and field mentors, producing an extensive list of All-Americans, including Shelly Greathouse-Borrman, Bryan Berryhill and Casey Malone. Greathouse-Borrman won five All-America certificates. Berryhill, now head coach of CSU's cross country program, won the 2001 NCAA indoor mile and recorded the nation's fastest outdoor time in the 1,500 meters. Malone won the 1998 NCAA discus title, the program's first men's track crown since 1952, then went on to compete in the 2006 Athens Olympics. He also recruited the program's successful current coach, Brian Bedard.

Prior to returning to his alma mater before the 1980-81 academic year, Max was an assistant at Western Kentucky (1979). He also served four years (1975-78, `80) as the head coach at Estes Park (Colo.) High School.

A Colorado State hurdler from 1971-75, he earned four letters and missed qualifying for the 1972 Olympic trials. In 2003, Max was inducted into the CSU Hall of Fame for his contributions to the athletic department. He also won Western Athletic Conference Coach of the Year honors.

Max owns both a bachelor's degree in physical education (CSU '75) and a master's in education (Western Kentucky '80). A native of Sioux City, Iowa, he graduated from Greeley (Colo.) West High School.

He and his wife Cindy make their home in Fort Collins and have three children, daughters Jordan and Rachael, and son Joel.
