Penn State Coaches Earn Stellar Academic Progress Rate Scores in NCAA’s Initial Survey

Aug. 5, 2010

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa., - The consistently high Academic Progress Rate scores annually earned by Penn State student-athletes are reflected in today’s initial compilation of APR scores for head coaches in six sports.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association’s release of APR data starting with the 2003-04 academic year shows that the five Penn State head coaches consistently produce teams who beat the average Division I APR score for their respective sport. The NCAA announced yearly APR scores for all Division I head coaches in baseball (Robbie Wine), men’s basketball (Ed DeChellis), women’s basketball (Coquese Washington), football (Joe Paterno), and women’s indoor and outdoor track and field (Beth Alford-Sullivan).
