Fletcher Brooks is entering his second 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.

In Brooks’ first season with the program, he saw each of his athletes post career marks in their respective events, as the field events notched nine places on the Iowa State all-time top-10 lists. Headliner Christina Hillman captured both indoor and outdoor conference and NCAA titles in the shot put, as the Cyclone thrower won 10 of 11 collegiate competitions under Brooks.

Along with Hillman, high-jumper Kelly McCoy reached the NCAA Outdoor Championships, taking home honorable mention All-America honors.

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.

Over his career, Brooks has coached 79 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.

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.
