FAIRFAX, Va. – A familiar face is returning to the George Mason men's and women's cross country and track and field coaching staff.
Tony Mihalich has been hired as an assistant cross country and track coach, head coach Andrew Gerard announced on Thursday. Mihalich spent the last four cross country seasons at Iona but before that he served as a volunteer assistant coach at Mason from 2012-14, working with middle distance, distance and cross country athletes.
"Very excited to bring him back," Gerard said. "He was a great fit when he was here before. I think his time away at Iona he has gained a lot of experience with high-level kids. I think it has been great for him. He has landed a number of very good international recruits. I think that aspect of what he has learned, being away, the international connections, I think are going to prove invaluable for us in terms of the recruiting process.
