Corliss Fingers is now in her third year with Bethune-Cookman University, serving as the Director of Strength & Conditioning for the 17-sport Division I program.
Now in her third year, Corliss Fingers has had her life in the weight room and outside as a mother chronicled in the web-based YouTube and Facebook series Beyond the Chalk in September 2017. As one of the only female head strength & conditioning coaches on the division I level of intercollegiate athletics, Fingers has been the subject of numerous articles throughout her time in the industry.
Fingers, a 23-year veteran in the strength & conditioning field, arrived to Bethune-Cookman prior to the 2015-16 athletic term from Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She spent four years at Southern, serving in a similar capacity with the Jaguars program. In that regard, she also served as the first-ever female strength & conditioning coordinator in the history of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). In 2013, she was instrumental in Southern capturing the school’s third SWAC Football Championship game crown, defeating Jackson State by a score of 34-27. The following year, the Jaguars returned to the league title game, falling to Alcorn State, 38-34.
