Best U.S. Distance Coaches At Worlds: Joe Bosshard And Jerry Schumacher

Best U.S. Distance Coaches At Worlds: Joe Bosshard And Jerry Schumacher
Two months ago, we crowned Bowerman TC's coach Jerry Schumacher as the highest scoring distance coach at the USATF Outdoor Championships. Now let's take a look at how the U.S. distance coaches performed at the IAAF World Championships last week in London. 

Jerry Schumacher once again scored the most points with 23 total points via seven athletes.

First-year coach Joe Bosshard had the best points-per-athlete tally after going one for one with Emma Coburn's historic steeplechase win.

Note: Only U.S. athletes were factored for each coach.
