Director Carl Sheffield
Director of Track & Field Carl Sheffield enters his ninth season at the helm at North Texas and 22nd year overall.View Carl's Bio ⟩
In 2019, the Mean Green qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field West Preliminaries in 10 events. The men's 4x100-meter relay team of Darien Porter, Davonye Jones, Antonio Delacruz and Abdon Campbell came up just .01 seconds short of advancing to the NCAA Championships while Aneesa Scott advanced to the quarterfinals in the 400. Porter (100-meter dash), Joseph Squire (110-meter hurdles), Brock Hottel (pole vault), Zion Hill (javelin), Scott (200-meter dash), Breanna Eckels (long jump), Haley Walker (discus) and Kristyn Archuleta (javelin) also competed. Throughout the prelims, the Mean Green finished higher than their incoming rankings in seven of the 10 events.
He brings enhanced credentials through his work at the Michael Johnson Training Center where he focused on improving the ability of his athletes to integrate linear speed concepts through biomechanics, motor control and performance analysis.
Sheffield began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant at LSU in 1988. The Tigers went on to win a string of 11 consecutive NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships. He also coached national-caliber athletes with Nike sponsored teams in Texas and along the Atlantic coast before his first stint at North Texas.
A native of Dallas, Sheffield was one of the top-five hurdlers in the state while attending Skyline High School and attended UTA on scholarship as a high hurdler.
After earning his bachelor’s degree from UTA in 1993, Sheffield earned his Master of Science from North Texas in exercise physiology in 1996. In addition to his coaching duties, he served as an adjunct instructor for North Texas from 2005-07 for the Department of Kinesiology.
