The Bowling Green State University Faculty Senate Tuesday approved the institution of a coaching minor.
The new 21-credit minor will be offered by the university's School of Human Movement, Sport and Leisure Studies next fall.
The minor was proposed by faculty member Adrian Turner, who explained the proposal to the senate.
He said that demand for the training comes from several different areas. Coaches now face higher standards of certification, including training in how to deal with concussions.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the demand for athletes, coaches, umpires and related positions will increase by 23 percent over the next decade.
Turner reported that the program could enroll as many as 50 students once it was underway. Those students are expected to come from several areas, including education students, both physical education and in other subject areas, sport management students, exercise science students, university athletes and parents.
BG women rally for 72-61 win over Ball State (1-16-13) PDF Print E-mail

MUNCIE, Ind. — After struggling in the first half to score, the Bowling Green State University women’s basketball team put 44 points on the board in the second half on the way to a 72-61 win over Ball State Wednesday.
‘‘This was good for us to be in a tight situation,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘Even though it was a double-digit win for us, it felt like every possession was a grind that last five minutes (of the game).’’
BG’s victory along with Central Michigan’s 65-60 win over Northern Illinois set up an early season showdown between the only two teams in the Mid-American Conference who are undefeated.
The Falcons play at Central Michigan Saturday with tipoff at noon. Both teams are 4-0 in the conference.
On Wednesday, Bowling Green trailed 31-28 at the half, but went 12-of-23 (52.2 percent) from the field, including a 5-of-8 (62.5 percent) effort on 3-pointers, and 15-of-17 from the free-throw line (88.2 percent) in the final 20 minutes.
‘‘They threw everything at us (on defense), and we were able to weather the storm,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said.
‘‘We took care of the ball against all their defensive alignments in both halves,’’ she added.

Falcons catching up on their rest (01-15-14) PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green's hockey team didn't have an off weekend during the first half of the season.
The Falcons will have plenty of chances to catch up on their  rest during the final eight weekends of the season.
BG is idle this weekend before returning to action Jan. 24-25 when it hosts Lake Superior.
The Falcons also have Feb. 7-8 off and only a single-game exhibition the weekend of Feb. 21-22. BG has five Western Collegiate Hockey Association series to play.
"I want us to continue to mentally and physically rest which you would do on any off week," BG coach Chris Bergeron said.
BG is 4-0-2 in its last six league games to move into second place in the WCHA with 21 points, one ahead of Minnesota State. But MSU has played two fewer games.
The second- through ninth-place teams in the 10-team league are separated by just nine points.
BG also will use the time off to fine-tune its game. The Falcons are 5-1-2 in their last eight games overall.

Sometimes it’s as simple as seeing the ball go through the net to help the confidence of a team.
Add in a good defensive effort, and those are two of the main reasons the Bowling Green State University men’s basketball team was able to break a four-game losing streak and earn its first Mid-American Conference win of the season Wednesday.
The Falcons shot 48.9 percent from the field (23-of-47) for the game, and held Central Michigan to 26.7 percent (8-of-30) shooting in the second half on the way to a 67-57 victory in the Stroh Center.
‘‘Our guys played with good intensity; that was a good foundation,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said.
A successful 3-pointer from Anthony Henderson on BG’s first shot of the game, gave the team some confidence.
