Although I like Ed and what he represents, this change comes out of nowhere.
Arguably, the track teams have been the dominant programs at the Y for the
longest amount of time. Seems like a shabby way to treat some very decent
individuals, one of whom wasn't even mentioned in this article.
What coaches were let go ?
Mark Robison and Patrick Shane are retained as assistants - they've been
the men's and women's head coaches. Leonard Myles-Mills and Cory
Murdock have been let go. Nick Arrhenius will also be retained and some new
hires will come in. Myles Mills has been at BYU for 13 years and Murdock has
been for 3.
I am totally baffled by this shake up. Robison is the most natural choice for
this position. He has been successful, and hard working and knows the ins and
outs of track like no other - having literally grown up around BYU track and
field. I find it interesting that the article doesn't even mention the
other coaches or what is going on there. Seems like a slight to me.
trackfanI agree with you 100%. Robison has an impeccable record as
Men's Coach. I am sure Eyestone is qualified, but how do you not give the
job to arguably the most successful coach, in any sport, in BYU history?And firing Olympian and still 60m record holder Leonard Myles? What is
up with that?I, too, am very disappointed that the article
doesn't give any mention to Robison. I am sure this shake-up was a huge
surprise to he and Patrick Shane.I have a vested interest in BYU
Men's Track and Field. I truly hope this works out for the betterment of
the team and individual athletes.
