Coleman has been a Major League Baseball strength and conditioning coach for twenty-three years, working with the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers. He is the only one who actually worked for two teams (Rangers and Astros) in the same season (1981). One of the first strength and conditioning specialists hired in Major League Baseball, Coleman worked with many of the game’s stars, including Nolan Ryan, Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Ken Caminiti, Joe Morgan, Randy Johnson, and Moisés Alou.
After working in Major League Baseball for more than twenty years, Coleman felt that he had information, policies, practices, and practical drills and procedures that could be of the value of players, coaches, parents, and administrators of baseball/softball teams. His writing is influenced by other professionals in the field of conditioning for all sports.
Coleman also was a professor and chair of Program in Fitness and Human Performance at the University of Houston at Clear Lake City, Houston, Texas and a professor and strength and conditioning coach at the University of Texas at Austin, Texas Tech University, and Eastern Kentucky University.
