Email Coach Stoker

Stoker is in his second year at Tennessee. He assisted with the men's and women's distance runners in track and cross country in addition to recruiting responsibilities.

The men's cross country team showed marked success in Stoker's two years with the program. Peter Okwera earned All-America honors in 2012 and was All-SEC and All-South Region in both 2012 and 2013. Both Daniel Tobin and Austin Whitelaw had the best seasons of their career, earning All-South Region honors.

Prior to Tennessee, Stoker served as the head coach of the men's and women's cross country programs at Bryan College - a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics institution in Dayton, Tenn. - for seven seasons and has been the track & field team's skipper for six years.

He was a four-time winner (2007, 2009-11) of the Appalachian Athletic Conference Men's Cross Country Coach of the Year Award. He won the AAC Championship those four years and his teams produced nine different NAIA All-Americans and earned 61 all-conference awards during his tenure.

A graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Stoker won two Southern Conference titles and helped the Mocs win the South Regional in 1998 to advance to the NCAA National Championship. He received a degree in exercise science in 2000.

Stoker and his wife, Kimberly, have three children: Owen Miles, Ian Pace and Hudson Lane.
