Cross Country Head Coach
Clint Woods begins his sixth season as head coach of the College of the Ozarks men’s and women’s cross country teams. His wife, Angie, serves as the assistant coach for both teams. Over the years, the duo has seen their teams steadily grow and improve each season.
In 2018, Woods played a key role in development and preparation for the NCCAA DI and DII Men's and Women's Cross Country National Championships, which were successfully hosted by College of the Ozarks for the first time. In 2019 Woods guided both the Bobcats and Lady Cats to A.I.I. Conference Championship titles. Woods’ teams wrapped up the 2019 campaign with a third place finish in the NCCAA National Championships for the Lady Cats and 4th place National Championships finish for the Bobcats.
While working diligently to train his athletes and build a strong program, Woods strives to challenge each runner to pursue continued improvement throughout the season. With this goal in mind, it is anticipated the team will have several runners once again qualify to participate in the NCCAA and NAIA national competitions should their 2020 season come to fruition.
Both Clint and Angie, along with their three children, invest a great deal of time and energy in their teams--desiring to see the athletes develop not only in their sport, but also in their personal and spiritual lives.
Woods holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Corporate Recreation/Wellness and a Master’s Degree in Recreation from Northwest Missouri State University. Prior to coming to College of the Ozarks, Woods has served as head men’s and women’s tennis coach at Oklahoma Wesleyan University, men’s director of Bartlesville K-Life, and women’s basketball graduate assistant at Northwest Missouri State. He attended high school in Nixa, Missouri, where he played tennis and basketball. The Woods Family came to College of the Ozarks from California in 2013.
In addition to leading the cross country program, Woods currently teaches in the Physical Education Department.
