In this episode of Ops Nation, we’re talking to the Director of Operations for the University of Nebraska Track & Field, Da’Nelle Earl. Da’Nelle has been with the Husker athletic program in some capacity since 2005.
In this episode Da’Nelle talks about her original intention to be a teacher and coach, her college (and track & field career) at Liberty University, working for the legendary Gary Pepin, getting mentored by current assistant coach and former director of operations T.J Pierce, taking courses at the USTFCCCA convention, the traits that lend themselves to being a successful Ops person, and how moving to the Big Ten changed some of her tasks.
Da’Nelle’s recommended app:
- Teamworks – operations platform for athletic teams and organizations
Da’Nelle’s Tip of the Day:
- “Note taking. Take notes during and after events. Review your notes by yourself and with your staff.”
