Bryan Berryhill is in his sixth year as the head cross country and assistant track coach at his alma mater, where he was a 10-time All-American and two-time national champion during his running career for the Rams. Berryhill is one of the most recognized names in Colorado State track & field history, winning the NCAA indoor mile in 2001 and then winning the outdoor 1,500-meter title three months later. He graduated in 2001.
Berryhilll guided the women's cross country team to CSU's first-ever Mountain West Conference and regional team championships during the 2007 season. In winning the Mountain West title, the Rams ended BYU's 19-year reign as conference champions. Because of the team's success, Berryhill earned Mountain West Conference and regional Coach of the Year honors. Other accomplishments by the Rams under Berryhill's guidance have included: April Thomas winning the first individual women's cross country title in school history, both Allison Gohl and Jake Keyser earning MWC cross country Freshman of the Year honors, the women's cross country team finishing 24th in 2006 and 15th in 2007 at the NCAA championships, and guiding Rob Watson (3,000-meter steeplechase) and Nicole Feest (10K) to school records in 2007. Watson was also the 2007 NCAA Midwest regional champion in the steeplechase. Both Watson and Feest went on to compete in the 2007 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
In 2009 he guided Ryan Friese to the indoor and outdoor 800-meter conference championships and Wil Buchanan to the NCAA championships in the 1,500 meters. The `09 season also saw Kristen Hemphill run in the USA Championships in the 3,000 meter steeplechase. During the 2009 Cross Country season Berryhill guided Sophomore Ellie Rastall and Senior Kristen Hemphill to the NCAA Championships. During the 2010 Track season he helped Kristen Hemphill win the MWC Steeplchase title, set the school record in the steeplechase, and earn All-American honors by placing 7th in the steeplechase at the 2010 NCAA Championships.
Berryhill is married to the former Toni Zander, who was also a member of the CSU track & field family. The couple has three children, 8-year-old Libby, 6-yearold Eli and 2-year-old Lainey.
