Adoree' Jackson will have a new long jump coach. The Director of the Track and Field Program Caryl Smith Gilbert announced yesterday the hiring of Sheldon Blockburger.
Blockburger coached at Arizona for 10 seasons, and another 15 seasons at Cal Poly prior to that. Blockurger has coached 13 NCAA titles, 30 conference championships, and 54 All-Americans in his career.
"This is a huge coup for USC Track & Field. Sheldon is, arguably, one of the few premier jumps and multi-events coaches in America and we are very pleased to be able to add such a great coach and mentor to our staff," said Smith Gilbert. "He brings a wealth of experience, success and passion along with him to USC and we are excited to welcome him into the Trojan Family."
