Tracey Cote has been the head coach of Nordic skiing at Colby for 14 years heading into the 2013-14 season.
After leading her 2008 men's and women's team to the best ski carnival finishes in the history of the Colby Nordic team, she was honored as the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA) Coach of the Year for the second straight season.
Cote helped the men's Nordic team take a full squad (at least three skiers) to the NCAA meet for the first time in 2008. The men's squad also won four ski carnival races, the first time any Colby Nordic team has won a carnival race. The women's team took two skiers to the NCAA meet in 2009 and two men's skiers competed in 2010.
As an undergraduate Cote attended Northern Michigan University, where she was an MVP runner on a nationally-ranked cross-country team, captain of the ski team, and an NCAA Division I national qualifier. Cote attended graduate school at the University of Wyoming and earned a master of science degree in health education.
Cote serves as Colby's Senior Women's Administrator and is an Associate Athletic Director.

"I'm so excited to have Linnea on the Colby coaching staff. She's an incredible athlete and her knowledge and racing experience will be a huge asset to our racers," Cote said. "She understands being a motivated student and having high academic goals. I think we will make a great team as we work to develop our skiers to compete at the highest level."
