Molly Jones, a former Florida State assistant, has joined the Iowa track and field coaching staff, said director of track and field Larry Wieczorek.

“Jones joins our team from a national power and NCAA contender,” Wieczorek said in a release. “She’s coming from one of the major programs in America and we’re thrilled she’s going to bring a wealth of experience to the University of Iowa. She’s extremely smart, extremely hungry, and I’m sure she’ll be a great addition to the program.”

Jones will coach pole vault, high jump, and multi-events, including the heptathlon and decathlon.

“I am very excited to join the Hawkeye family,” Jones said in a release. “The Big Ten is a great conference, and I want to thank Coach Wieczorek for allowing me the opportunity to contribute to an already successful Iowa track and field program. I’m prepared for the challenge and ready to get started.”

Jones has spent the last two seasons as a volunteer coach at Florida State working with short sprints, jumps, multi-events, and javelin. She helped guide the Seminoles to ACC championships in 2012 and 2013.
