Jerel Langley is in his first year as an assistant coach at the University of Miami, joining the track and field program in September 2013.

Langley, who will coach jumps and multi-events, comes to Miami after spending three years at Eastern Michigan. He has also been an assistant coach at Kennesaw State and saw his student-athletes excel at both universities.

At Eastern Michigan, Langley helped high jumper Tatijana Jacobson earn a spot in the field at the 2013 USA Outdoor Senior Nationals. Langley also coached Alysha Newman to Canadian Junior National records in the indoor and outdoor pole vault, as well as the Pan-American Junior Championship meet record at 4.40m. Newman also earned second team All-America honors at the 2013 Indoor Nationals.

Langley also coached Kate Wolanin to Eastern Michigan’s first MAC Indoor Pentathlon Championship and guided Meghan Powers to a second place finish in the indoor pole vault at the MAC Championships. In Langley’s first year at EMU, he coached Jessica Hemingway to second team All-America honors and helped her break the school’s records for both indoor and outdoor pole vault.

Overall, Langley coached five MAC individual champions, 10 All-MAC performers, had six student-athletes qualify for the NCAA East Regional and guided his student-athletes towards setting seven school records at Eastern Michigan.

While at Kennesaw State, Langley was the program’s recruiting coordinator and also coached javelin, pole vault and multi-events. Fifteen Owls were named All-Atlantic Sun in Langley’s two years at Kennesaw State. Additionally, twelve school records were broken in those two years and five conference championships were claimed. The men’s team won the conference Triple Crown in Langley’s first year on staff.

Langley attended Gardner-Webb University, where he was a member of the school’s track and field team. After graduating from GWU in 2008 with a degree in sport management, Langley went to Kennesaw State where he received his Master’s degree in Applied Exercise and Health Science.
