Colton Slack arrived to campus beginning in the fall of 2015 as an assistant track and field/cross country coach before being hired on as head coach starting in the fall of 2016.
Slack came to BVU after having served as an assistant track and field coach at Anderson University in Anderson, Ind. (2014-15). During his tenure there, he coached three school-record holders - men's 200 and 400 meter dashes, as well as the women's 4x400 meter relay.
Prior to that, he began his coaching career at the high school level with stints at Plainfield High School (Ind.) in 2013-14 as well as Terre Haute South Vigo High School in 2011-12. During both stops, he helped coach state qualifiers, including a runner-up in 2014 (4x100 relay in 41.68).
Slack was a stand-out track and field athlete himself at Indiana State University from 2008-2010. He earned a pair of all-conference accolades as a member of the 4x400 meter relay team where it currently ranks third on the top-10 list. In addition, he ranks fifth in the 4x200 and seventh in the 500 meter dash.
