Bryan Berryhill enters his second season as head coach of the University of Wyoming track and field program in 2013-14.
His debut began well for the 2012-13 season as the majority of the team earned personal-best marks during the year and multiple school Top-10 records were broken. Eight athletes received All-MW honors from the indoor season while nine achieved the rank for the outdoor season. He also led the program to qualify 11 athletes to the NCAA West Preliminary to finish the outdoor season. Between the indoor and outdoor seasons, five school records were broken and 50 entries inserted into UW's all-time Top 10 marks.
Before Wyoming, Berryhill served as the head cross country and assistant track coach at Colorado State since 2006. He was named the 2007 Women's NCAA Regional and Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year after the CSU women won their first ever team titles at the Mountain West Conference championships and the NCAA Mountain Region championships in the same season.
He had a stellar collegiate career at CSU, earning 10 All-America honors in cross country and track. A national champion in the indoor 1-mile run and outdoor 1,500-meter run in 2001, Berryhill holds five individual and three relay records at CSU. He competed as a professional track athlete from 2001-04 and 2005-07.
The CSU women finished second or better in the MW Cross Country Championships in four of the six years of Berryhill's tenure. During his time with the Rams, he coached student-athletes to six school records and coached the only CSU woman to win a Mountain West cross country individual title with April Thomas' win in 2007.
Berryhill received his bachelor's degree in forestry from CSU in May 2001. He and his wife, Toni, have three children: Libby, Eli and Lainey.
