Andrew Ninow
Position: Assistant Coach - Throws
Experience: 3 Years

Andrew Ninow begins his third season as an assistant coach working with the throwers. Ninow made an immediate impact on The Farm, leading five throwers to the NCAA Outdoor Championships in just two seasons.

Edrick Floreal, the Franklin P. Johnson Director of Track & Field is pleased to have Ninow aboard. "Andrew is a young and up and coming coach who has already produced results, putting four throwers at the NCAA's in 2009. He is one of the young bright minds in the throws and will continue to develop that area to the next level."

Last season, Ninow led Jaynie Goodbody to her third-straight trip to the NCAA meet in the hammer throw. She was also the Pac-10 Champion in the same event. During the indoor season, Carter Wells earned a MPSF title after winning the weight throw in dominating fashion.

Highlighting Ninow's impressive group in 2009 was Daniel Schaerer who won the Pac-10 title in the discus. Schaerer went on to the NCAA's where he earned his first All-America honor after placing third. Also advancing to the NCAA's for the men was Kyle Davis-Hammerquist in the hammer throw.

On the women's side, Ninow helped Michaela Wallerstedt earn a trip to the NCAA's in both the shot put and the discus. In addition, Goodbody made a repeat trip to the national meet in the hammer.

Before coming to Stanford, Ninow coached throwers at the University of San Francisco. At USF, Ninow coached the female javelin school record holder and conference champion. His male throwers scored a total of 32 points at the conference championships.

A native of Sacramento, Ninow graduated from UCLA where he majored in Biochemistry and trained under coach Art Venegas. After graduating, Ninow stayed at UCLA as an assistant throws and weight coach before accepting the throws coaching position at the University of San Francisco.

Ninow was a two-time Pac-10 and West Regional competitor for UCLA. His best finish was eighth place at the 2007 NCAA West Regional in the hammer throw. He has a personal best toss of 207-4 in that event. He currently resides in Pleasanton with his wife Kristen.
