Nick Newman was named the National Men’s Assistant Coach of the Year for the 2022 NCAA DI Outdoor Track & Field season. Newman, in his first year as assistant coach at Tennessee, coached three athletes to point-scoring finishes at the NCAA DI Outdoor Championships. Tops for the Volunteers was Wayne Pinnock, who won the long jump to lead a 1-4-8 UT finish along with Carey McLeod (fourth) and Anthony Riley (eighth). That group accounted for 16 of Tennessee’s 34 points that earned a third-place team finish. Pinnock and McLeod also went 1-2 in the SEC Outdoor Championships long jump.
