Former Buckeye All-American Rosalind Joseph (Goodwin) is in her sixth season as associate head coach at Ohio State and 10th season overall with the Scarlet and Gray. She returned to coach at her alma mater in July of 2008 after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Auburn University.

Joseph was a two-time All-American in the triple jump as a collegiate athlete at Ohio State, placing fifth at the 2005 NCAA Outdoor Championships and sixth at the 2004 championships. A six-time Big Ten champion, Joseph won the Big Ten indoor triple jump and long jump titles in both 2004 and 2005, while also winning the 2004 outdoor triple jump and 2005 outdoor long jump crowns. A 2014 Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame inductee, she still holds Ohio State records in the outdoor triple jump (13.50m/44-3.50), the indoor triple jump (13.37m/43-10.50) and the outdoor long jump (6.39m/20-11.75). Joseph was also a 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials triple jump qualifier and the ninth-place finisher in the triple jump at the 2005 USA Track & Field Championships. 

In nine seasons with the Scarlet and Gray, Joseph has worked closely with the Buckeyes' jumpers and multi-event athletes. Abie Ehimwenman has enjoyed tremendous success under Joseph's guidance for three indoor seasons, winning the 2015 Big Ten long jump title and breaking her coach’s indoor school record in the event on her way to Second Team All-America honors. Ehimwenman was a Big Ten silver medalist in 2014 and a bronze medalist the year prior. 

She also administered daily training regimens for men’s long jumper Zack Bazile during his 2015 season that saw him win the 2015 Big Ten indoor long jump title; Bazile was also named the 2015 Big Ten Indoor Freshman of the Year. In 2016, Bazile earned his first-career All-America honor in the outdoor long jump with a bound of 7.58m (25-10.5). In the spring of 2017, Bazile had a stellar season that culminated with a trip to the NCAA Championships in the long jump. At the 2017 Big Ten Outdoor Championships, Bazile racked up 16 points for the Buckeyes between the long jump and triple jump with a pair of second-place finishes. His career-best indoor long jump of 7.67m (25-2.00) is the fifth-longest in school history.

Joseph guided Taylor DeLoach and Mikaela Seibert to scoring at both indoor and outdoor conference meets as well as entering the record book for top five marks in their respective events. As a freshman, DeLoach tallied up eight points in the long jump at the conference meets; she placed fourth at indoors and sixth outdoors. Seibert placed fourth at the indoor Big Ten meet in the triple jump and followed that up with an eight-place showing at the outdoor conference competition. Seibert’s career best jumps in the triple jump for indoor (12.92m/42-4.50) and outdoor (12.86m/42-2.25) are both the fifth-best marks in program history. DeLoach’s career-best collegiate leap in the long jump during indoor season of 6.17m (20-3.00) is the fourth longest to ever be recorded.

Kelcey McKinney won the Big Ten outdoor triple jump title in 2011 and, along with Ashley Galbraith, qualified for the NCAA East preliminaries. Galbraith would go on to compete at the NCAA championships, where she earned Honorable Mention All-America honors with an 18th-place finish in the high jump.

Joseph also oversees appointing and direction of the pole vault volunteer assistants.

A 2006 graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in human ecology, Joseph and her husband, Dexter, reside in Columbus with their daughter, Gabrielle, and son, Harrison.
