Former Jacksonville State University head football coach Jack Crowe is the past executive director of the American Sports Medicine Institute, where he worked with Dr. James R. Andrews in education and research of sports injury prevention. Coach Crowe also is recognized as an accomplished college football coach for forty years serving and winning championships at Auburn, Clemson, Arkansas (where he served as head coach), and Baylor universities. He is a uniquely experienced and qualified professional to address issues that crossover the two domains of sports medicine and the sports participation itself.
Coach Crowe has long had a pioneering interest in the education of parents and coaches. He has testified in the Kentucky State Legislature on "best safety practices" in coaching. His academic background in the basic human sciences and as an instructor in kinesiology and care and prevention of injuries give him the credentials to represent himself as both a coach, educator and as a sports medicine professional.
That interest lead to his involvement with medical providers and continuing education providers to initiate programs which address the parent and the coach as part of the sports medicine continuum. His professional services are focused on sports education.
Coach Crowe is new member of Safe Kids’ sports safety team. Learn more about his sports safety initiatives at www.coachsafely.com.
