Head men's track & field coach Fred Samara announces the hiring of Robby Andrews as an assistant track & field coach.

"I'm extremely pleased to have Robby here as an assistant coach," Samara said. "He's a world class runner. He will add a lot to the spirit, enthusiasm and the expertise to the team."

Andrew is a two-time NCAA champion in the 800, winning in 2010 and 11. His personal best are 1:44.71 in the 800 and 3:34.78 in the 1500. A three-time All-America and a Bowerman semifinalist, Andrews finished fifth in at the 2012 US Olympic Trials in the 1500. He earned a bronze medal at the IAAF World Juniors and was a finalist at the 2011 US Championship in the 800. Andrews won two Penn Relays Championship of America relays with the 4x800 in 2010 and 2011 and was named the Outstanding Male Relay Performer at the 2011 Penn Relays. During his junior year he was named the ACC Performer of the Year and was honored with the ACC Sportsmanship Award.

A native of Manalapan, Andrews holds the US national high school records in both the indoor 800 and 1000.

Andrew recently completed his degree at the University of Virginia after taking this past spring semester off to train professionally. He will continue to train with head cross country coach Jason Vigilante, his former coach at UVa.
