The publication’s editorial review board selected Dabbs’ article, “A Socio-Cultural Perspective of the Work-Life Interface of College Coaches: A Cohort Analysis,” as an award finalist from its published works for the 2016 calendar year.

The article, co-authored by Jeffrey A. Graham of the University of Tennessee and Marlene Dixon of Texas A&M University, examines successful navigation of the work-life interface among sport management scholars and practitioners. Building on Dixon and Bruening’s multilevel model of the work-life interface in sport, the authors analyzed responses from 840 NCAA Division I male and female head coaches to assess the impact of cohort (age/career stage) and gender on work-family conflict and family-work conflict.

The award winner will be announced at the 10th annual College Sport Research Institute (CSRI) Conference, held April 12-14 at the University of South Carolina.

The Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics is a peer-reviewed, scholarly, open-access journal dedicated to encouraging, supporting and disseminating interdisciplinary and interuniversity collaborative college-sport research.
