KCOB Lennox Graham enters his first season as an Assistant Track & Field Coach at Clemson University after nearly a 10-year stint as the head coach Johnson C. Smith in Charlotte, N.C. Graham will work closely with Tiger sprinters and hurdlers.

The 1984 graduate of Alabama State University has coached in several international events including the 2016 Olympic Games, the 2014 Commonwealth Games and three World Championships in Athletics.

Graham is also a nine-time CIAA Coach of the Year recipient. Graham guided the Johnson C. Smith women’s team to four NCAA Division II Championship top-5 team finishes in 2011 (outdoor), 2013-14 (outdoor) and 2014 (indoor). He has coached a combined 25 NCAA Division II national indoor/outdoor champions.

While at Johnson C. Smith, Graham saw five NCAA Division II national records set by his student-athletes in the women’s 60-meter hurdles (2008-09), the women’s 200-meter dash (2013), 400-meter hurdles (2013) and the 4x100-meter relay (2013). Additionally, Graham has guided 164 All-Americans in indoor and outdoor track & field competition.

Outside of NCAA competition, Graham coached Danielle Williams, who won both the 2015 World Championships and 2015 World University Games Championship in the 100-meter hurdles.

In 2012 olympics held in London, Graham guided Leford Green to a seventh-place finish in the 400-meter hurdles. At the 2009 Pan-American Junior Championships, Graham coached the top-two finishers in the 100-meter hurdles in Shermaine Williams and Rosemarie Carty.

We wish him as the best at Clemson.
