CINCINNATI - The University of Cincinnati track and field program named a pair of new assistant coaches, men's head coach Kris Mack and women's head coach Susan Seatonannounced Tuesday.

Sam Burroughs was named associate head cross country coach and an assistant track and field coach. He will coach the middle and long-distance runners. Former three-time Olympian Nadine Faustin-Parker was named an assistant track & field coach with responsibilities coaching the short sprints and hurdles.

"We are very excited to have Sam and Nadine join the Bearcats Family," Mack said. "There were so many great candidates and we feel both of our hires were the best fit for our program. Both have done amazing work at previous institutions and share our vision and values as a team. I look forward to the chapter of Bearcats success both Sam and Nadine will help us write."

Burroughs comes to UC after a three-year stint at North Texas as an assistant coach while Faustin-Parker spent the last two seasons as the head coach at Mansfield University in Pennsylvania.

During Burroughs' time with the Mean Green, he coached five all-conference performers in cross country and saw his middle distance and distance groups set four school records. He was the 2011 Sun Belt Conference Women's Cross Country Coach of the Year.

Prior to North Texas Burroughs spent two years in the same position at Abilene Christian University, where he collected two Lone Star Conference Championships, a South Central Regional Championship and a fourth-place finish at the NCAA championship meet in men's cross country. He was named the 2008 South Central Regional Coach of the Year by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches' Association as well as the Lone Star Conference Men's Coach of the Year in 2008 and '09.

Before joining the ACU staff, Burroughs was the assistant cross country coach and an assistant track and field coach at Iona College (N.Y.) for three seasons. Burroughs helped lead the Gaels to unprecedented success from 2005-07 as he was part of a program that posted three straight top-four finishes at the NCAA Division I national cross country championship meet, 4th in 2005, 3rd in 2006, and NCAA National Runner-ups in 2007. While at Iona, Burroughs helped coach the Gaels to three straight Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) titles and helped the women's program to its third straight MAAC title.

Additional coaching stops include Manhattan College and Boston University.

Burroughs, who earned his bachelor's degree in Exercise Physiology in 2000 from the University at Buffalo, competed as a top member of the school's teams. Burroughs remained at Buffalo for graduate work, earning his Master of Science in Human Performance in 2002.

Faustin-Parker represented Haiti in the 100-meter hurdles in three Olympic Games, 2000 in Sydney, Australia, 2004 in Athens, Greece and 2008 in Beijing, China. She was a 2004 semifinalist, posting a personal-best time of 12.74.

In her first season with the Mountaineers, Faustin-Parker made an immediate impact by coaching senior sprinter Justen Johnson to a PSAC men's indoor 400m title and a 12th place finish at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Johnson's individual PSAC title and NCAA qualification were the first for a sprinter in Mansfield history.

The national record holder in four different events, Faustin-Parker is one of six appointed representatives on the Athletes Commission for the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) for the period of 2010-2013.

She came to Mansfield after serving four years as the director of track and field operations/administration and assistant coach at her alma mater the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

A 1999 graduate of North Carolina, Faustin-Parker earned All-American honors at her alma mater during her undergraduate career. Faustin-Parker was inducted into the UNC Track and Field Hall of Honor in 2007.

Following her collegiate career, Faustin-Parker competed on the Elite Track and Field European circuit from 1999-2008 traveling the world. In 2005, she won the Gold Medal for Haiti in the Central American and Caribbean Games held in Nassau, Bahamas.

At the Francophonie Games, Faustin-Parker won the bronze for Haiti in 2001. She was a semifinalist at the Indoor and Outdoor World Championships in 1999 (Seville, Spain), 2001 (Edmonton, Canada), 2003 (Paris, France), 2004 (Birmingham, England), 2005 (Helsinki, Finland), 2006 (Moscow, Russia), and 2007 (Japan).

This past summer, she attended the NCAA Women's Coaches Academy where she was one of just two coaches to be honored with the Judy Sweet Award.

In 2012, she was named to the inaugural list of 25 people to be selected to The 1804 List of 25 Haitian American Changemakers in the United States by The Haitian Roundtable. It is an organization of Haitian-American professionals who are committed to civic engagement as well as philanthropic endeavors benefiting Haiti, Haitian organizations and causes.

They are seen as thought leaders, trailblazers, or unsung heroes who, through their deeds and accomplishments, have helped to create a better understanding of Haiti and the Haitian community.
