Haines' list of accomplishments at Southeast includes coaching 18 NCAA Division II final four teams, one NCAA Division II national indoor track championship, one NCAA Division II national cross country championship, four NCAA Division II runner-up teams, six NCAA Division II third-place teams, six NCAA Division II fourth-place teams, 145 NCAA Division II All-Americans, 23 NCAA II individual national champions, three NCAA Division I All-Americans and one NCAA Division I individual national champion.
Haines won six Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association Coach of the Year awards and 11 Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year awards. He has been the state Coach of the Year seven times.
In addition, Haines served as sprint coach at the United States Olympic Festival in 1994 and was president of the NCAA Division II National Track and Field Coaches Association during the 1990-91 school year.
