Team USA coaching staffs announced for IAAF World Championships and Pan American Games

5/12/2015
 

INDIANAPOLIS -- USA Track & Field announced Tuesday the coaching staffs that will lead Team USA at the IAAF World Championships and Pan American Games this summer.


Leading Team USA at the IAAF World Championships are Delethea Quarles and Edrick Floréal as the women’s and men’s head coaches, respectively, while Rose Monday and John Moon will spearhead the American effort at the 2015 Pan American Games.


The IAAF World Championships take place August 22-30, 2015 in Beijing, China at Beijing National Stadium. Affectionately known as the “Bird’s Nest,” Beijing National Stadium was the main stadium of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and seats 91,000 fans. Team USA is coming off an impressive performance at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow in 2013, scoring 282 points as a team for the most ever by a U.S. team. Team USA captured 25 medals, tying its second-highest medal output. Qualification standards and selection procedures are now available.


The track & field portion of the Pan American Games takes place July 20-26, 2015 in Toronto, Canada at CIBC Pan/Parapan Am Athletics Stadium at York University. The third-largest international multi-sport Games, the 2015 Pan American Games will welcome over 7,000 athletes from across the Americas and the Caribbean. Qualifying standards for the event are now available and athletes will be chosen from the top finishers at the USATF Outdoor Championships. Team USA earned 10 medals in the last Pan American Games, with eight of the 10 medals coming from the field events.


Quarles is in her 18th year at the University of South Carolina and currently serves as assistant head coach. Quarles has extensive international experience, having been appointed to the Team USA staff for the last two IAAF World Championships. Most recently in Moscow at the 2013 IAAF World Championships, Quarles served as the jumps and multis coach for the women's team. Quarles was an assistant coach for Team USA at the 2011 IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea, with responsibility for the jumping events.


Floréal is the head coach of the University of Kentucky men's and women's cross country and track and field teams, taking over the reins in July 2012 after a successful six-year stint as director of track and field at Stanford. In two years at UK, Floréal has built the Wildcats into a national power in track and field, with Wildcats athletes earning 26 All-America honors, 16 individual SEC Championships and Dezerea Bryant became UK's first-ever women's sprinter NCAA Champion. Floréal served as an assistant coach for Team USA at the 2002 IAAF World Junior Championships.


Monday, who most recently coached at the University of Texas-San Antonio, is nationally known as one of the top minds in middle distance and distance running. In 2003, she was appointed USATF Development chair for women’s distance events. She was an assistant coach for the U.S. team at the 2005 World University Games in Izmir, Turkey, and served as head women’s coach for Team USA at the 2006 IAAF World Junior Championships in Beijing, China. She most recently served as the assistant coach for women’s distance for the U.S. women’s team at the Olympic Games in London, and has served as the Team USA women’s distance coach at the IAAF World Relays in 2014 and 2015.


Moon coaches at Seton Hall University, where he’s been the leader of the program since 1972. His success at Seton Hall is evident as he has a large collection of championships and accolades. The seven-time Big East Coach of the Year has coached 71 All-Americans, seven NCAA champions and tutored 19 Olympic athletes during his career. Away from coaching at the collegiate level, he also has quite a resume on the international stage. The pinnacle of his international coaching career came in 2000 when he was an assistant coach for the U.S. men’s team at the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. This is Moon’s second head coaching appointment for the Pan American Games.
