A veteran coach with more than seven years as a head coach, Justin Herbert has joined the ORU track and field staff in July 2017.
Herbert has served as the director of cross country and track and field at both Tennessee Wesleyan and Montreat College over the past six years. Prior to that he was the head cross country and assistant track and field coach at Central Methodist.
Herbert was the 2017 USTFCCCA South Region Coach of the Year and is a two-time AAC Coach of the Year with 61 national qualifiers, 194 all-conference athletes and 51 conference championships to his credit. His 2014 Montreat squad earned the NAIA Team Champions of Character Award.
"We are thrilled to be adding Coach Herbert to our staff here at ORU," said Dial. "The fact that he is currently finishing up his doctorate is impressive to me, but add to that his work ethic, experience and strong Christian values; he is the perfect coaching addition to ORU Cross Country and Track and Field."
