New coaches find success in first year

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Finding new head coaches hasn't been something Chris Massaro has had to do often in his 15 years as Middle Tennessee's director of athletics.

Currently, seven of the Blue Raiders' 12 head men and women have been at the university at least eight years, and five have a dozen or more years under their belt, headlined by the 55-year tenure of legendary track and field and cross country coach Dean Hayes.

The 2018-19 school year presented a bit of a challenge for Massaro, though. He was tasked at finding four new head coaches to lead his women's tennis, men's golf, men's basketball and baseball teams.
