Although I like Ed and what he represents, this change comes out of nowhere. Arguably, the track teams have been the dominant programs at the Y for the longest amount of time. Seems like a shabby way to treat some very decent individuals, one of whom wasn't even mentioned in this article.

What coaches were let go ?

Mark Robison and Patrick Shane are retained as assistants - they've been the men's and women's head coaches. Leonard Myles-Mills and Cory Murdock have been let go. Nick Arrhenius will also be retained and some new hires will come in. Myles Mills has been at BYU for 13 years and Murdock has been for 3.

I am totally baffled by this shake up. Robison is the most natural choice for this position. He has been successful, and hard working and knows the ins and outs of track like no other - having literally grown up around BYU track and field. I find it interesting that the article doesn't even mention the other coaches or what is going on there. Seems like a slight to me.

I agree with you 100%. Robison has an impeccable record as Men's Coach. I am sure Eyestone is qualified, but how do you not give the job to arguably the most successful coach, in any sport, in BYU history?

And firing Olympian and still 60m record holder Leonard Myles? What is up with that?

I, too, am very disappointed that the article doesn't give any mention to Robison. I am sure this shake-up was a huge surprise to he and Patrick Shane.

I have a vested interest in BYU Men's Track and Field. I truly hope this works out for the betterment of the team and individual athletes.
