Cathrine Erickson Named Assistant Women’s Track Coach

CLEMSON, S.C.– Cathrine Erickson, former men’s and women’s assistant track and field coach at the University of Mississippi, has been named assistant women’s track and field coach at Clemson University, Tiger head coach Marcia Noad announced Tuesday.

“I am very excited about Cathrine joining the program because she brings a lot of experience, personality, knowledge and integrity with her to the first assistant’s position,” said Noad. “Our philosophies and views on right and wrong are very consistent and we will work together as a team and be an excellent example to our track and cross country teams.”

A 1996 graduate of Florida State, Erickson has served as assistant coach at Mississippi since 1998. Her primary responsibilities with the Rebels included coaching and administering technical aspects of the heptathlon, decathlon, shot put, discus, hammer, weight and javelin. Erickson also designed and developed the training and strength programs for all event areas. She was also involved with the CHAMPS Lifeskills Program, a committee-based program that focuses on enhancing the quality of the student athlete’s experience at college.

Prior to her stint at Mississippi, Erickson was the men’s and women’s assistant coach at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock from 1996-98 where she was primarily responsible for coaching and administering workouts in the throwing areas.

“I am ready for the world to know I am a Clemson Tiger. I am excited to work with individuals who know success and who are willing to work with our coaching philosophies,” said Erickson.
