Track and field hires Andre English as sprints/hurdles assistant coach

Following the departure of former assistant coach Dionne Henley, a Jamaican native and two-time olympian, the search for a new sprints and hurdles coach has come to an end.

Announced Tuesday, Andre English will take over the position. For the past two years, English served as the head coach at Marietta College, an NCAA Division III school. 

Prior to his tenure at Marietta, English spent five years as an assistant for Division III school, Southwest Baptist University. During his time at SBU, 10 of his athletes received All-American honors and two became NCAA Elite 89 winners. 

As an athlete, English was a member of the University of Illinois track and field team. While there, he was a two-time Big Ten runner up in the 110 meter hurdles, once qualifying for the 2004 outdoor nationals in the event.
