Kansas throws coach leaves for Kentucky

Thursday, August 11, 2005

Doug Reynolds, throws coach at Kansas University for the last five years, has resigned to take a similar position at Kentucky.

Reynolds' throwers at KU set six school records as well as three Big 12 Conference records, three national records and one collegiate record and captured seven Big 12 individual titles.

"Doug comes to us with fabulous coaching credentials," UK coach Don Weber said. "Unquestionably, he is one of the very best throwing coaches in the country."

Prior to joining the KU staff, Reynolds had stops at Boise State (1999-00) and Arizona (1998-99). A 1998 Arizona graduate, Reynolds earned national recognition as a Pac-10 champion in the discus throw, along with a No. 1 NCAA ranking.
