Lol Kendra will not be developing any program. She’ll be recruiting, coaching the kids Matt doesn’t want to coach, and driving vans.
They brought in Sean Carlson from Division III power North Central a year after he graduated and it took him a while to become a full-time men's distance coach. Looks like they are doing the same with Kendra Foley - who won championships at Division II powerhouse Grand Valley and was a grad assistant there last year. Sparks will undoubtedly have a hand in the women's distance this year until she develops her own program. Pate and Zuyderwyk are both solid coaches and they all have Indiana connections.
All of this may be true, but she’s 23 with a paid assistant position at Notre Dame. I don’t care what any of you say, that’s gold. She is in a great position to learn a lot in a big program before taking over her own place in the next couple years. Watch her become a head coach at like 26 laughing her butt off at all the letsrun haters.
