Unfortunately with the new director in at Ucla, John Frazier is NOT the men's head coach any longer. Also, looks like Curtis Allen is new assistant coach at ucla?!?!
John Frazier enters his fourth season at UCLA as the head men's track coach. He also directs the throws, primarily the shot put and discus.
In 2016 the UCLA men placed third at the Pac-12 Championships and finished 18th at the NCAA Championships. Frazier was named the USTFCCCA West Region Menâ€™s Assistant Coach of the Year.
The throws program continued to thrive under his watch. Senior Nicholas Scarvelis, sophomore Braheme Days and freshman Dotun Ogundeji qualified for the both the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor National Championships. Scarvelis won his third straight Pac-12 shot put title and then later went on to win the NCAA West Prelim title and also qualified in the discus. Days was third in the region in the shot put while Ogundeji competed in the shot put and discus at the national meet.
Earlier in 2016, Scarvelis uncorked the fourth longest throw in school history at 67-7.50 and in doing so also hit the Olympic qualifying mark. Days closely followed with the sixth best throw at 66-3.75. Ogundeji launched a personal best 62-11.50 at the NCAA Prelims. On the women's side, junior Torie Owers recorded the seventh-best throw in school history at 57-5.
Scarvelis earned first-team All-America honors in both the indoor and outdoor seasons. Days also joined Scarvelis on the podium during the outdoor season. Ogundeji was an indoor second team All-American and was honorable mention in both the discus and shot in Eugene.Hmmmmn wrote:

Is being the third sprint coach at a Power 5 better than a head coach at a mid-major? A several more years and he might have had a chance at head coach of his own power 5 team.
