Baltimore, Md. - Loyola College Director of Athletics Joe Boylan today announced that Greyhounds Women's Track and Field Head Coach Brett Harvey is leaving his position to pursue other interests. A search for a replacement will begin immediately.
Harvey also assisted with the Men's and Women's Cross Country teams and is leaving those positions as well.
"We want to thank Brett for the time and effort he put in toward our women's track programs," Boylan said in making the announcement. "We wish him well in his future pursuits."
Harvey spent just two seasons at Loyola and was honored as the MAAC Coach of the Year after guiding the Women's Outdoor Track squad to a fourth-place finish at the 2007 Championship with a school record 94 points in his first season at the helm. The team finished sixth this season. Loyola placed fifth at the MAAC Indoor Championships each of his two seasons leading that program.
"I am leaving to pursue other opportunities in the coaching world and I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to coach at Loyola," Harvey stated. "We accomplished some tremendous things and I am confident that the program is in terrific shape for this year and the years to come. I put my heart and soul into this program, but it is time to move on to other challenges and I want to wish my team the best of luck and I will always be rooting for them."
A 2004 graduate of Lafayette College where he was a four-year letter-winner on the Leopards' Track and Field teams, Harvey is a Baltimore native, growing up in nearby Timonium and was graduated from Dulaney HS in 2000.
