Jim Foster (baseball), John Copeland (men’s track & field), and Tom Drennan, M.A. ’80, (golf) each earned Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year honors in their respective sports this past spring. Foster, who guided the Rams to their ninth consecutive appearance in the A-10 Championship, earned the award for the first time in his URI career. Copeland, who completed the team trophy sweep with both indoor and outdoor track titles, earned top coaching honors twice in 2010–2011. Drennan, who retired this past May, was tabbed as the top A-10 golf coach after the conference championship tournament.
