Edrick Floreal, the Franklin P. Johnson Director of Track & Field is pleased to announce Andrew Ninow will be hired as the new Stanford assistant coach working with the throws. 'Andrew is one of the nation's top up and coming throws coaches and we are very excited to have him on board, ' said Floreal, ' he is extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and committed to creating a powerhouse throws contingent at Stanford.'

A native of Sacramento, Ninow graduated from UCLA where he majored in Biochemistry and trained under coach Art Venegas. After graduating, Ninow stayed at UCLA as an assistant throws and weight coach before accepting the throws coaching position at the University of San Francisco. He currently resides in Dublin with his wife Kristen.

Ninow was a two-time Pac-10 and West Regional competitor for UCLA. His best finish was eighth place at the 2007 NCAA West Regional in the hammer throw. He has a personal best toss of 207-4 in that event.

Ninow and the rest of the Cardinal will get the track and field season underway after the new year when they compete indoors, beginning with the UW Indoor Preview on January 16.
