ECU Athletic Training

The student-athlete at East Carolina University has the luxury of having one of the most dedicated health care teams in the Southeast. Directed by Mike Hanley, Associate Director of Athletics for Student Services, along with trainers Nathan Clark, Ben Crawford, Jake Moore (head football athletic trainer), Sharon Rogers, Brian Wiese, Zac Womack, Lauren Yaeger, Ashley Yartin, Tracy Yoshikawa, and team physician Dr. Joe Armen, the ECU Athletic Training program provides every Pirate student athlete the best available care for their injuries. Hanley, the 2009 National Athletic Trainer's Association (NATA) Trainer-of-the-Year, and his staff are assisted by a wide array of community-based physicians and other health care providers.

Housed in the Ward Sports Medicine Building adjacent to Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium and Minges Coliseum, the main athletic training room is a modern facility complete with the latest equipment. Satellite athletic training rooms are located in Minges Coliseum, Murphy Strength and Conditioning Center, Clark-LeClair Stadium and the Williams-Harvey Teams Building (Terry Holland Sports Complex).
