Chad Reynolds enters his 15th season at the collegiate level and his tenth since returning to his alma mater as an assistant coach. Reynolds previously served as a student assistant at Miami from 1997-99, giving him 12 years of experience in Oxford, and was a graduate assistant at Ohio University from 2000-01. He works primarily with the RedHawks' hurdlers, sprinters and jumpers.

Miami's sprinters and hurdlers had a tremendous year under Reynolds' tutelage in 2012, as he coached two individual MAC champions, had three athletes named All-MAC and sent two runners to the NCAA East Preliminary Rounds. Reynolds helped Jahquil Hargrove capture the 400m MAC title in a school-record time of 46.62, breaking a mark that had stood since 1988, while Hargrove also took third in the 200m dash and was named Outstanding Track Performer at the MAC Championships. Reynolds also coached JaShawn Combs to a MAC title in the 110m hurdles while Kevin Brown earned Second-Team All-MAC in the 800m, joining Hargrove and Combs as All-MAC performers. Hargrove and Jordan Goffena both qualified for the East Prelims with Goffena posting the second-best time in school history in the 110m hurdles while Combs cracked the top-10 earlier in the season.

The 2011 season saw Reynolds first develop Hargrove into an All-MAC performer, as he was the runner-up in the 400m dash at his first MAC Championships. Goffena also first posted an all-time top-10 mark in the 110m hurdles under Reynolds' watch. At the 2010 MAC Championships, Michael McCarty scored for Miami in both hurdles races while two other sprinters also scored at the league meet. McCarty also went on to compete in the NCAA East Preliminary Rounds in the long jump with Reynolds' guidance.

With Miami serving as the host school for the 2007 MAC Championships, Reynolds' top scoring athlete was junior Ben Robinson, who finished seventh in the 800 meters. In the hurdles, Reynolds had a pair of athletes, Eric Horvath and Brad Stoner, qualify for the finals of the 400-meter hurdles.

Helping Miami to a fifth-place finish at the 2006 MAC Championships, four of Reynolds' athletes scored at the conference meet, two each in the sprints and hurdles. In the sprints, Heinz Von Eckartsberg was Reynolds' top athlete, placing fourth in the 400 meters, while Michael Watts scored with a sixth-place finish in the 200 meters.

During the 2004-05 season, Chris Corgiat (400m) and Bobby Houston (400m hurdles) both scored at the conference meet, with Houston narrowly missing all-conference honors as he posted a third-place finish. Houston's 400-meter hurdle time (52.40), which ranks sixth all-time at Miami, also qualified him for the NCAA Mideast Regional. He was one of five RedHawks to earn an invitation to the regional meet. In addition to his individual point scorers, Reynolds' 4x100 relay and 4x400 relay teams scored at the 2005 MAC Championships and helped Miami post a fourth-place team finish.

Reynolds' first season as Miami's full-time assistant was highlighted by Houston's fourth-place finish at the MAC Championships in the 400-meter hurdles and the 4x400 relay team's third-place showing.

Prior to Miami, Reynolds assisted both the men's and women's programs at Ohio. On the men's side, he guided the sprinters and jumpers, and in MAC Championships, the sprinting and jumping events were responsible for almost 70 percent of the team's total points. The Bobcats also produced three MAC Champions, including one NCAA qualifier in the long jump, under Reynolds' watch.

While an undergraduate at Miami, Reynolds served as team manager for the RedHawk cross country team during his freshman and sophomore years. He was named student assistant for his final two years - 1997 and 1998 - when Miami won back to-back MAC titles. The 1997 MAC Cross Country Championship was Miami's first championship team in 12 seasons, while the 1998 squad qualified for the NCAA Championship.

A Findlay, Ohio, native, Reynolds attended Culver Military Academy in Culver, Ind., where he played basketball and football and earned four letters in track.

Reynolds graduated from Miami in 1999 and went on to earn his master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Ohio in 2003.

Reynolds resides with his wife, Virginia, in Oxford. The couple has two daughters, Contessa and Linda, and one son, Arthur Rylen, who was born in 2011.
