Bowling Green State University head cross country and track and field coach Lou Snelling has announced the addition of assistant coach Marcus Myers to his staff.
Myers will serve as the throws coach for the Falcons, a position he previously held at Northwood University for four seasons. Myers brings a wealth of experience in coaching, as well as a multitude of national honors as a thrower
“Over the years we have had a consistent history of high level success in the Mid-American Conference and at NCAA Championships, particularly with our throws group. The list of conference champions and All Americans is long,” Snelling said.
“Concurrently we have had a high level of coaching in that event area. I am confident Marcus Myers will be the next great throws coach at Bowling Green,” he said. “He already has a pedigree of success going back to being an NCAA Champion himself. I look forward to seeing our program continuing to develop over the next many years under his tutelage.”
While at Northwood, Myers guided his throwers to three NCAA D-II first-team All-American honors, as well as two NCAA D-II second-team All-American honors.
During his tenure, nine student-athletes qualified for the NCAA D-II National Meet, with the men’s and women’s throws teams producing 30 NCAA qualifying marks.
Additionally, Myers mentored the group to four program records, three conference championships and five conference runners-up.
