Why U.S. Distance Legend Pattisue Plumer Returned To The NCAA
Sep 4, 2018Two-time Olympian, U.S. champion, American record holder, NCAA champion. Pattisue Plumer has done it all and then some as a middle-distance runner. But this fall marks a new chapter—she moved from her long-time home in the Bay Area, where she spent the last five years coaching Gunn High School and the Stanford Running Club, to steamy Austin, Texas, where she joined the University of Texas staff as assistant cross country and track coach for the women’s distance team. She’s resigned herself to the fact that fall doesn’t begin until late October, but above all, is pleased to rejoin forces with Longhorns head coach Edrick Floreal—with whom she worked for several years as an assistant at Stanford.
