JIM IRVIN -- Men's and Women's Cross Country Head Coach
7th season at Point Park
The 2010 season is Jim Irvin's seventh year as head coach of the Point Park University men's and women's cross country teams. Prior to becoming the head coach in 2004, Irvin was the Pioneers' assistant coach for two years.
Irvin, a longtime running enthusiast, believes in emphasizing a strong fundamental base of conditioning to propel the runner's natural ability.
Irvin has completed a number of marathons and 5K races, and he believes that the key to being a successful runner lies with a strong work ethic. While Irvin is pleased with how far the cross country programs have come in the past few years, he believes that the program is far from peaking.
