Statement from USC Athletic Director Mike Bohn, 6-13-21

"The Trojan Family offers its gratitude and congratulations to Caryl Smith Gilbert on her appointment as the new Director of Track & Field at the University of Georgia. In eight seasons leading our program, Caryl established USC Track & Field as a national force, winning two women's NCAA Outdoor National Championships among many other terrific accomplishments. We hold Caryl and her family in the highest regard, and we wish them all the best moving forward. We appreciate that Caryl will coach our athletes through the U.S. National Trials over the next two weeks.

Our track & field program has an incredibly storied history and our momentum has never been greater. We continue to make further investments in our championship program, most recently with the opening of our brand new $16 million on-campus dedicated track & field facility. We plan to move swiftly to name our next Director of Track & Field."
