SOUTHERN UTAH GYMNASTICS COACHING STAFF


 
 
SCOTT BAUMAN
HEAD COACH
Bauman  

Head coach Scott Bauman will celebrate his 26th year at the helm of the SUU gymnastics program in 2016, setting him apart as the longest tenured coach in all of Thunderbird athletics. Over that time, Bauman has overseen the ascent of the squad from a relatively unknown entity to one which has ingrained a reputation as one of the nation's established and respected programs. The ascent has culminated in four consecutive NCAA Regional appearances, a three-time All-American in Elise Wheeler and the 2010 Western Athletic Conference Championship trophy.

Southern Utah would have had even more success at regional meets had the newest rules adopted in 2008 been in play during Bauman's time as head coach. The Thunderbirds would have appeared in the NCAA post season in 21 of 25 years, finishing in the top 36 of the nation in each of those campaigns.
