Neville Announces Resignation as Head Track and Field Coach

 UPLAND, Ind. – David Neville announced on Monday that he would resign as the Taylor University head men’s and women’s track and field coach to accept a sprints coach position at the University of Tennessee.

“My past three years here at Taylor University have been a true blessing,” said Neville. “I have established many relationships and learned so much along the way. God has afforded my family and I a great opportunity and though it is hard to move on, I know God is going to continue doing great things with the track and field program here. I will always remember my time here and the impact every student-athlete has had on my life.”

 

During Neville’s three-year tenure at the helm of the Taylor track and field program, the Trojans produced 106 national qualifiers, 30 NAIA All-Americans and 30 new school records.

 

Neville’s teams produced a combined four top-25 finishes at NAIA Nationals, highlighted by a ninth-place showing from the men at the 2016 NAIA Indoor Championships. During the 2016-2017 year, Taylor was one of only six schools in the NAIA to earn top-25 grades for its men’s and women’s programs in the USTFCCCA Program-of-the-Year Standings. TU came in at No. 6 on the men’s side, No. 16 on the women’s side and No. 3 overall.

 

“We are appreciative of everything that David has done for Taylor University Track and Field,” stated TU Athletics Director Kyle Gould. “He has been a major part of the development of some incredible student-athletes both on and off the track and has been a great friend to many inside our athletics department and all over campus. It is no surprise that a school the caliber of the University of Tennessee would come calling and we wish David, Arial and their children nothing but the best as they take on this new challenge.”

 

Neville is set to begin his time on staff at Tennessee on October 1.
