During his four years leading the Big Green women’s distance runners, Coogan has coached five All-Americans, won the 2013 Ivy League Cross Country Heptagonal Championship, and helped groom Abbey D'Agostino ’14 into a five-time NCAA national champion.

Under Coogan’s guidance, D’Agostino became the most decorated individual male or female in Ivy League history with four combined NCAA titles in indoor and outdoor track and field in addition to the cross country national championship that she won this past November.

Coogan will remain with the Big Green through the outdoor season in addition to starting his work with New Balance.
