Bryan Berryhill enters his fourth season as head coach of the University of Wyoming track and field/cross country programs in 2015-16.
The former professional runner continued to lead the Cowboys and Cowgirls in the right direction in the 2014-15 season. During cross country, Holly Page and Amos Bowen qualified for the NCAA Championships, as three Wyoming runners earned All-Mountain Region honors. Page helped the Cowgirls finish third at the MW meet to tie their highest finish ever. During the indoor season, seven Wyoming student-athletes earned All-MW honors and the group collected nine more honors during the outdoor season. A program-record 15 student-athletes went on to qualify for the NCAA West Preliminary and Harry Fisher earned Second Team All-America honors. Under Berryhill Wyoming's student-athletes have notched 89 top-10 individual marks in school history, including six school records.
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.
