New Sports Nutritionist position fosters relationship between UNT Dining and Athletic Department

A bowl game victory, competing in March Madness, winning a Conference USA championship — these are just some of the goals for University of North Texas Mean Green athletic teams. But achieving those goals requires time and dedication long before UNT athletes take the field or hit the court. Training and nutrition during the athletic season as well as throughout the year are just as important. And to aid in the success of the Mean Green, Dining Services hired Charles Ashford to become the university’s first full-time sports nutritionist.
Ashford was brought to UNT to provide nutrition education to Mean Green student-athletes as well as chefs, coaches, athletic trainers, and strength coaches. He also assists with the daily functions of Champs dining hall, making sure the menu is suitable for the demands of student-athletes. Ashford is also in attendance during meal times to help student-athletes with their nutrition choices as well as to answer questions.
