Mike O'Shea joined the Athletics Department in 1993 as the head athletics trainer at the University of Houston. Widely regarded as one of the top collegiate trainers in the country, O'Shea oversees the training room operations for the football team and for all Houston student-athletes. He leads a staff of five full-time assistants, six graduate assistants and several student trainers.

For his heroic efforts in saving the life of cornerback D.J. Hayden following a collision at practice, O'Shea will receive the Excellence in Athletic Training Award from the Southwest Athletic Trainers Association in July 2013.

With his quick thinking and action, O'Shea helped save Hayden's life from an injury that is 95 percent fatal and more often seen in explosions or war casualties and never in athletics competition.

Nearly six months after his injury, surgery and rehabilitation, Hayden was taken with the No. 12 overall pick by the Oakland Raiders in the annual NFL Draft and will be at full strength by the start of training camp in the fall.

During the summer of 2010, he received the Most Distinguished Trainers Award from the Southwest Athletics Trainers Association. This was only the latest honor for O'Shea during his outstanding career.

In 2008, he received the University of Houston's Bill Yeoman Special Contributions Award. O'Shea received the Most Distinguished Athletics Trainer Award from the National Athletic Trainers Association in 2005.

Before coming to Houston in 1993, O'Shea served as the head football athletics trainer at the University of Louisville from 1985-93. In 1987, O'Shea was named the National Athletic Trainers Association University Athletics Trainer of the Year.

Prior to his tenure at Louisville, O'Shea worked with Howard Schnellenberger at Miami from 1979-85. O'Shea was with the Hurricanes when they upset Nebraska in the 1983 Orange Bowl to win the national championship.

O'Shea's association with Schnellenberger started in 1973 when he was hired as an athletics trainer for the NFL's Baltimore Colts.

The Brenham, Texas, native began career in 1963 as a student assistant athletics trainer at Blinn College. He then moved to the University of Texas and later Kent State University. He received his bachelor's degree from UT in 1968 and his master's degree from Kent State in 1974. O'Shea served four years in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed at the U.S. Air Force Academy as an athletics trainer.

O'Shea was the head athletics trainer for United States AAU track and field teams that traveled to Russia in 1975 and Italy in 1977. In 1981, he wrote The History and Development of the National Athletics Trainers' Association.

In 1999, O'Shea was awarded the Professional Football Athletic Trainer Society's Distinguished Alumni Award. He is a certified member of the National Athletic Trainers Association and a Texas Licensed Athletic Trainer.

In July 2007, O'Shea was awarded the College and University Athletics Trainer of the Year Award by the Southwest Athletics Trainers Association.

The O'Shea family includes wife Annette, son Chad and wife Melissa as well as grandchildren Claire, Grace and Michael. Chad, a former Cougar quarterback, graduate and assistant coach at UH is presently the wide receivers coach for the New England Patriots. Daughter Julie, married to Tobie Holmes, also is a UH graduate and an educational diagnostician with Fort Bend ISD. They have a daughter named Shea.
