Another Great Coach You Have Never Heard Of


I was so pleased to go the Track and Field News website and see a very nice article about Elijah Greer and his coach Bob Williams. I met Bob four years when were both working with the Nike Oregon Project. Getting to know Bob and work with him was the high point of that experience. He is a great coach. He ran the steeplechase at Oregon under Bill Bowerman. He is a Bowerman disciple, I loved talking to him about the Bowerman system, and it was a terrific education. Over the years he has consistently applied the Bowerman principles to produce a string of outstanding runners. His latest is Elijah Greer who has the leading 800 meter runner in the nation last year as a Junior. If you ever get a chance to meet Bob you will enjoy it. He is a wonderful person and a great coach.
