Today, Harvard University announced the addition of two coaches to the track and field staff, featuring Brown’s sprint/hurdles coach Marc Mangiacotti. Mangiacotti arrives at Harvard after a two-year stint at Brown where he coached five Ivy League champions for the Bears, including four-time sprinting champion John Spooney. The other addition to the Crimson staff is Andrew Dubs, who will head the throwing program that dominated Outdoor Heps last year. Dubs comes to the Ivy League after coaching at the University of North Carolina and Auburn University. Dubbs will fill the position vacated by Cathrine Erickson earlier this summer for the director’s position of Northeastern University Cross Country/Track and Field programs. Former Crimson All-Ivy thrower and coaching assistant Jack Brady will join Erickson at Northeastern as an assistant coach and program recruiting coordinator.
Earlier this season, it was announced that former program director Michelle Eisenreich and jumps/multi coach Reuben Jones have left Brown for new coaching opportunities. No announcements have been made on their replacements. Interim director Tim Springfield has expressed to the Brown Daily Herald that the team has been handling the changes well.
