Bryan Berryhill enters his second season as head coach of the University of Wyoming cross country and track and field programs in 2013-14.
In his first season at the helm, the 2012 Wyoming cross country squads found success training in Berryhill's conditioning program. The Cowboys earned three second-place finishes during the year while the Cowgirls had one second-place mark and two third-place finishes. Sophomore Holly Page earned All-MW First Team honors following her fourth-place finish at the league meet to lead the Cowgirls to sixth place while the Cowboys achieved fifth place.
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.
