Analysis of Homologous Reproduction in Community College Athletics

The purpose of this study was to examine the presence of homologous reproduction in the community college context. The authors analyzed the gender of the athletic director, women’s basketball head coach, softball head coach, and volleyball head coach at 611 community colleges. Results indicate that most athletic directors (82.7%) were men. Chi-square analysis indicated that the gender of the athletic director was statistically associated with the gender of the head coach for both women’s basketball and softball, as well as the likelihood of homogeneous staffs (i.e., the three head coaches all being either female or male). Results are discussed in terms of implications for practice.
