Steve Law heads into his seventh season at the helm of the
Tennessee Tech Golden Eagle rifle team in 2009-10. Law looks to
build on the solid foundation he has constructed during his tenure
Law’s fourth year as the head coach of the Tech Golden Eagle rifle team was focused on guiding the team back to the pinnacle of collegiate shooting. The Golden Eagles finished the 2006-07 season ranked 14th in the nation and placed fourth in the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament.
In 2004-05, his second season at the Tennessee Tech helm, Law coached the Golden Eagles to a second place finish at the O’Reilly Ohio Valley Conference Championships. Tech received three all-OVC honors, and senior Chris Dautel went on to qualify and shoot at the NCAA Championships where he finished ninth. At one point during the season, Law’s team was ranked as high as 16th in the nation by the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association.
Law’s first year as head coach of Tech’s rifle team was a successful campaign for the first-year coach. The team finished third in the 2004 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament and placed seventh in the NCAA National Championships.
Law is the Human Resources Manager for Tech’s Army ROTC program. While on overseas tours with the Army in Germany, Law assisted in rifle competitions with setting up matches and scoring targets. Law also had the opportunity to travel with the rifle teams to Germany, Denmark and Finland.
Retired from the Army, Law was a member of the military for 27 years, and was on three tours to Germany and one to Greece. Law’s postings in the United States include Fort Irwin in California, Fort Hood in Texas, Fort Sill in Oklahoma, Fort Hamilton in New York, and Fort Riley in Kansas.
A native of Maryville, Tennessee, Law attended West Virginia University prior to completing his undergraduate studies in 1990 at the University of Maryland with a degree in history.
Law was a natural selection to head the Tech rifle program when he was selected in 2002. An asset to the coaching staff at Tennessee Tech, he has experience around the world through his military ties and brings a wide range of knowledge to the Eagle program.
Law lives in Cookeville with his wife, Kerri.
