LOUISVILLE, Ky. - University of Louisville women's track and field coach Warren Bye has announced the hiring of Kris Horton as an assistant coach. He will handle the Cardinal women's distance runners.

Horton comes to Louisville after coaching the middle distance and distance runners at Bellarmine University the past four years. During the 1999-2000 season, he served as the interim track and field head coach. In addition to his coaching duties, Horton was responsible for developing the strength and conditioning program for the Knights' cross country teams.

"Kris brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our cross country and distance programs," said Bye. "He will be able to give our distance runners the attention they need to make it to the next level. Kris' hiring brings us a step closer to putting together an excellent staff in all areas of our program."

The Cincinnati, Ohio, native was a four-year letterwinner in cross country and track at Bellarmine and garnered Great Lakes Valley Conference All-Academic honors all four years. Horton was a three-time captain for the track team and was named MVP as a junior. In 1999, he received the John T. Loftus Athletic and Academic Excellence Award.

A member of Chi Alpha Sigma Athlete Honor Society, Horton earned a bachelor's degree in economics in 1999.
