Fletcher Brooks
Release: 07/19/2013

Fletcher Brooks is entering his third year as the associate head coach of the Iowa State track and field and cross country program. Brooks is coaches the Cyclones’ throws, jumps and multi-event athletes.

The 2015 outdoor season saw five Brooks disciples earn All-America honors. Christina Hillman was once again a first-team All-American in the shot put, while Jan Jeuschede also repeated as an outdoor All-American in the shot put. For the second year in a row, Brooks coached a women’s high jumper to All-America honors in Marine Vallet after Kelly McCoy was an All-American in 2014. In the long jump, freshman Jhoanmy Luque picked up All-America honors in the women’s long jump and has proven herself as a top competitor in the triple jump. Closing out his All-America group was decathlete Taylor Sanderson, the junior who earned his first career All-America honor and the third All-American Cyclone decathlete in program history.

Brooks’ first season at Iowa State was highlighted by Hillman’s sweep of the indoor and outdoor national titles in the women’s shot put, the first national championships in throwing events for the Iowa State women all-time.

Over his career, Brooks has coached 84 All-Americans and 14 NCAA Champions, including star-pupil Tanasia Hoffler. Hoffler was a repeat NCAA Division III champion in the triple jump at Williams.

Brooks previously coached under Smith at Oklahoma during the 2013 indoor and outdoor track and field seasons. Prior to Oklahoma, Brooks served four years as the head men’s and women’s track & field coach at Williams College in Massachusetts. While at the helm, Brooks collected numerous coaching honors, earning back-to-back NESCAC Men’s and Women’s Track Coach of the Year honors (2009, 2010), the 2010 USTFCCA New England Region Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track Coach of the Year and the same recognition in 2012 as the Women’s Outdoor Track Coach of the Year.

Before Williams, Brooks served as the head coach at MIT, leading the Engineers to the top of the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC). During his tenure, the Engineers captured the NEWMAC title in 2007, finished third in the 2008 indoor season and second in the 2007 outdoor season, both of which are top finishes in program history. Brooks also coached the Engineers' 2006 men's indoor and outdoor NCAA champion in the shot put.

Before assuming the role of head coach at MIT, Brooks spent seven years at Williams (1998-2005) as the Ephs' strength and conditioning coach, developing productive strength and conditioning programs.

Brooks graduated from Allegheny College in 1993 where he earned a bachelor’s degree in English and minored in women’s studies. Brooks was also an All-American in the shot put and lettered on the football team, which won the Division III National Championship in 1990.
