FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Colorado State University Head Coach Brian Bedard announced Friday that John Carter, a member of the Rams’ track & field/cross country staff for the past 12 seasons, has accepted an administrative position at the Poudre School District.

“Carter will serve as the dean of students at Fort Collins High School, providing a very good opportunity for his family,” commented Bedard. “Not once did I doubt his love for track & field and the enjoyment he had while working at CSU.”

During his tenure Carter’s coaching duties were changed several times, and he adjusted and found success with whatever groups he worked.  One of his most valued qualities as a coach was his investment in the athletes, both on and off the track. Carter made a real effort to counsel the athletes about life issues and show he cared about each of them beyond their performances on the track. 

Bedard expressed nothing but appreciation toward Carter for his time spent at CSU.

“He is leaving his current event areas in great shape with an outstanding recruiting class,” said Bedard. “The new coach should take him to a nice dinner and thank him for the outstanding job he has done with recruiting. I never doubted John’s loyalty to me and to the Colorado State track and cross country programs. He bleeds green and gold, and I owe him a debt of gratitude for his efforts to make our program better over the past 12 years. Our staff sends our well wishes to him and his family in his new career.”
