An Albuquerque, NM native, Henry first made a mark in Texas when he started his collegiate coaching career at Blinn College in Brenham where he would win two NJCAA titles, leading to a career at LSU from 1988-2004. Henry moved to Texas A&M in 2005 where he led the Aggies to dominate the Big 12 winning 14 total conference titles. Since moving to the SEC, Henry has helped the men win one outdoor track title (2014) and one women's outdoor title (2013). His biggest mark came as the first coach to lead a school to three consecutive NCAA men's and women's track & field titles, which he did with Texas A&M from 2009-2011. Henry's 35 team national titles are currently the third-most in any NCAA sport. He has the most indoor and outdoor track and field national team titles of any coach in history. He is the only NCAA head coach to ever win both the men's and women's outdoor national titles in the same year. During international duty, Henry served as head coach of the U.S. men's national team during the 2007 World Championships in Osaka, Japan. He led the U.S. men's team to a record 10 gold medals, bettering the previous best-of-nine set during World Championships in 1991 and 2005. In addition, the U.S. men's team totaled 19 medals, the best tally by the United States since the 1991 World Championships.
