Bama track adds distance coach to staff

Adam Tribble will join the University of Alabama track and field coaching staff as an assistant coach, head coach Dan Waters announced Monday.

"Adam was a guy that I coached at the University of Georgia and I've always recognized his deep passion for the sport and he's educated himself in the sport as well as anyone," Waters said. "He has a fantastic relationship with distance runners and knows how to relate to them. He brings a great element of organization and energy to our staff."

Tribble, who will work primarily with the Crimson Tide's distance runners, spent the last two seasons in the same role at Oregon State following stints at Arkansas and his alma mater, Georgia.

"When Coach Waters talked to me about this position he made it sound like an incredible opportunity and I think Alabama is a great situation," Tribble said. "There is a commitment to track and cross country that is very exciting and a great thing to be a part of. The opportunity to be able to come back into the SEC is something I've wanted to do, especially to a program like Alabama."

During his five seasons at Arkansas he helped coach the Razorbacks' women's team to three-straight SEC Cross Country Championships and a pair of runner-up finishes. Arkansas never fell out of the top 20 at the NCAA Championships under his watch and finished as high as fifth in 2006.

While a student at Georgia under Waters' tutelage, Tribble was a two-year captain of the Bulldog track and field team, earning All-Region honors in cross country. He also finished 46th in the U.S. Olympic Trials in the marathon in 2008.

A 2002 graduate of Georgia with a degree in health and physical education, he also received a graduate degree from Georgia in movement studies.
