Ihmels was happy to get away from the P5 scene. The only reason to go back would be money. UW would immediately get thinner if they hired him.

Personally, no freaking way should any of the names mentioned in previous posts/replies (D. Smith, Ihmels, Franklin, Fox) be considered unless they can demonstrate that they're willing to improve the other areas of the track and field team at the University of Washington.
Can anyone name the NCAA All-Americans that they've produced since they've been head coaches at their schools that were NOT middle distance/distance runners (I believe Smith had a hammer thrower)?
I'd like to see Washington try and pry Connie Price-Smith away from Ole Miss, and take Ryan Vanhoy with her to Seattle, and keep Pat Licari.
Lipscomb University is now looking for a men's distance coach. Its a young up and coming D1 program in Nashville, TN. Returning everybody but 2 for the next two years. Finished 6th in the South region this past year. Had 2 regional qualifiers in the 800. Conference champions 4 of the last 5 years.
There are plenty of what ifs in regard to Georgia’s losing National Championship by a point. For what it’s worth, it is not clear that Kate Hall’s sub-par performance was due to any actions of the coaching staff. She has type 1 diabetes.
