Ole Miss Track Announces Coaching Hires

Mariam Kevkhishvili-Machavariani And Ryan Vanhoy Join Rebel Staff

Updated 9/20/13

Ryan Vanhoy is in his first season as an assistant coach on the Ole Miss track & field staff.

He coaches the men's distance runners in cross country and on the track.

Vanhoy comes to Oxford after one year at Northeastern University and the previous three at the University of North Carolina.

At Northeastern, Vanhoy coached NU runners to four Colonial Athletic Association conference titles and helped develop Eric Jenkins into an All-American in the indoor 3,000 meters and outdoor 5,000 meters. In 2013, Jenkins became the fourth-fastest American collegian ever at 5,000 meters (13:18.57) and also ran a sub 4-minute mile (3:58.11).

Vanhoy spent the previous three years with the North Carolina Tar Heels, where he helped produce two Atlantic Coast Conference champions, five NCAA East Preliminary qualifiers and two Olympic Trails qualifiers. In 2012, he guided Isaac Presson and Ashley Verplank to conference titles in the mile and 1,500 meters, respectively.

After two years as an assistant coach at UNC, Vanhoy was promoted to head men's and women's cross country coach in January 2012 and was responsible for recruiting and implementation of training programs for more than 40 student-athletes, in addition to other administrative and operational duties.

During the 2012-13 season, he mentored the men's distance medley relay team, which broke a school record that had stood for 27 years.

Prior to his promotion, Vanhoy worked as an assistant track and field and cross country coach for two seasons. While coaching the men's middle distance runners, he also managed areas of team compliance, travel and recruiting.

Vanhoy, who was a member of the Tar Heels' track team, graduated from North Carolina in 2009 with a Bachelor's of Science in biology. The Asheboro, N.C., native earned his master's degree in exercise physiology from UNC in 2012.
