Kaschak's primary duties include the supervision of the team managers, as well as aiding in travel organization for all track & field and cross country meets. Kaschak also assists with home track meet management and preparation and daily administrative operations.
During the previous two years, Kaschak established himself as a reputable volunteer coach while assisting Director of Track and Field Clyde Hart with the training and coaching of both the men's and women's 400-meter groups. More specifically, Kaschak devoted extra efforts to the women's 400-meter runners, helping lead the Lady Bears to back-to-back All-American honors in the 4x400-meter relay. The group finished 3rd at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in 2009 with a time of 3:29.52, their best finish in the event since 1998. The 4x400 women also won back-to-back Big 12 titles in 2008 and 2009.
Among the 400-meter group assisted by Kaschak, Diamond Richardson earned a gold medal at the Pan-Am Championships in the 4x400-meter relay, as well as a silver medal at the USA Junior Nationals. At the 2009 Big 12 championships, the Baylor women earned a school record three All-Big 12 performances at 400 meters. All three women set personal bests in 2009, led by Katrina Taylor at 52.75. Under Kaschak's assistance, the men's 400-meter runners continued their tradition, winning two national titles in the 4x400-meter relay in 2008 and one in 2009. Marcus Boyd emerged as a top 400-meter runner, winning a gold in the 400 meters and 4x400-meter relay at the 2008 IAAF World Junior Championship in Bydgoszcz, Poland, with a world junior-leading time of 45.53.
