Roberts Added To Track and Field Coaching Staff
Army West Point Director of Track & Field/Cross Country Mike Smith has added Michael Roberts as an assistant coach. Roberts will work with the Black Knights sprints, hurdles, horizontal jumps, and relays.
“Michael is an experienced young coach who has had success at both the NCAA Division I and Division II levels,” said Smith. “He elevated the profile of the program at Northwood and guided several of his top athletes to elite performances at the NCAA Championships. He possesses the qualities that will serve him well here at Army. He is a confident leader, he is looking for a challenge, and he has a proven background of success as a recruiter and as a coach. He comes highly recommended by his athletic director, for both the success he brought to Northwood, but also because of his professionalism and maturity. He will be a strong leader for our cadet-athletes, and we are lucky to have him join our staff.”
Roberts joins the Black Knights from Northwood University (MI), where he served seven seasons as the head coach for the men's and women's cross country/track & field programs. During his tenure with Northwood University, the Timberwolves set 21 school records, had 20 NCAA First Team All-American honors for both programs, and served as a member of the USTFCCCA DII Track & Field Executive Committee.
