Kent State is unable to produce documents proving the school’s head strength coach has proper certification.
According to Ross Bowsher from cbssports.com, who was overseeing the activities when Tyler Heintz passed away, may have been the only member of the coaching staff without certification.
Bowsher is starting his second year with the program, and if not certified, would be in violation of NCAA Bylaw 11.1.5 which claims that coaches must maintain a current certification through a national accredited program.
Heintz was the 35th college football player to die since the year 2000. Heintz died June 13th after collapsing during the second day of workouts due to hyperthermia.
