Chuck Coffey is a fifth-generation rancher who grew up on a ranch in the hill country of Harper, Texas. He proudly earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in range science from Texas A&M and now has three children, all of whom attend Oklahoma State University. Chuck taught agriculture at Murray State College in Tishomingo, Okla. after completing his master's in 1985, eventually chairing the department there, until he joined the Noble Foundation as a pasture and range consultant in 1993. He is extremely passionate about ranching and feels blessed to be able to work on the ranch every day, especially after a serious horseback-riding accident that threatened to leave him paralyzed before several surgeries and months and months of rehabilitation. With a wealth of activities on and off of the ranch at any given time, Chuck says he has learned that "staying busy keeps you young."
