FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Track & field Head Coach Brian Bedard announced the addition of Ryan Baily to the staff Tuesday. Baily will handle head assistant coaching duties, specifically working with the jumpers and multi-event athletes.
Baily will replace Tim Cawley. The former assistant accepted the head coaching position at Idaho earlier this month.
“Ryan brings a lot of experience, passion, and a proven record of success to our program,” praised Bedard. “He's been successful wherever he's been coaching and in all event areas including the jumps, throws and multi-events. He's won numerous coaching awards over the years. That's a tribute to his recruiting, coaching and commitment to each athlete's success. Ryan will coach the multi-events, and have a hand in coaching all of the jumping events. I've given Ryan the head assistant coach title which gives him more responsibility, along with some consulting and decision making duties. I'm thrilled to add Ryan Baily to the CSU track staff.”
Baily joins Colorado State after five years as the head coach at Chadron State. While there he qualified a record number of student-athletes for nationals, broke numerous school and conference records and led the Eagles to their first-ever top 10 team finish at the NCAA DII championships.
A four-time Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Coach of the Year, Baily coached 38 RMAC champions, 21 All-Americans and one national champion while at Chadron State. His teams finished in second place five times at the RMAC indoor and outdoor championships.
Baily was also responsible for reviving a then-defunct cross country program in 2012. The women’s team most recently placed sixth at the league championship.
A native of Scottsbluff, Neb., Baily led the Western State track & field program from 2005-09 prior to his time at CSC. He graduated from Chadron State in 2003.
“I am very honored to have the privilege to assist Coach Bedard and work with such an incredible staff at Colorado State,” commented Baily. “Being able to put the majority of my time into coaching and recruiting is very exciting. Also, my wife and I are thrilled to return to Colorado and live closer to family. The Cawley’s did an awesome job guiding the jumpers and multis, and I plan on building on the current success that they achieved.”
