McAllister enters his seventh season as head coach of the Saint Xavier University men's cross country and track teams.  In 2008, SXU finished fourth overall at the conference cross country meet and sent two of its track student-athletes, plus a distance-medley relay (DMR) team to the NAIA Track & Field Championships.  In 2005, McAllister was named both the CCAC and NAIA Region VII Coach of the Year as his Cougars captured conference and region cross country titles in only their second season of competition.  SXU garnered third-place honors in both the CCAC and NAIA Region VII in 2006 and 2007.
