Newland: A life dedicated to teaching
Forty-five years and counting.
Leo Newland, professor of biology and coordinator of environmental science, became a professor in the fall of 1968 and doesn’t plan on stopping. This fall marked his 45th year at the university, making him the longest tenured professor.
“I will continue to teach until it’s no longer fun,” said Newland. “The single most important thing about your work has to be the enjoyment of it.”
He credits his amazing interactions with his students for his lengthy time teaching at TCU.
Meacham hired as new Offensive Coordinator
Doug Meacham was announced as the new offensive coordinator for the TCU football team Thursday.
Meacham spent the 2013 season as the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Houston. From 2005-12, he coached tight ends and receivers at Oklahoma State.
"Our goal is to remain a physical football team," head coach Gary Patterson said in a press release. "Coach Meacham was part of an Oklahoma State system that was highly successful throwing the football, and he continued that in his one year at Houston.”
Three swimmers close to beating 20-year-old record
Sebastian Arispe, Adam Szilagyi and Anthony McMurry are all battling to break a swim record from 1993.
The 20-year-old record for the 200-meter freestyle is the last of TCU alum Ron Forrest’s seven records that he set as a swimmer on the TCU team. However, he would like to see that record broken this season.
