Andrew Ninow will work with the throwers at Kentucky after working for four seasons as an assistant coach at Stanford.

In those four seasons, Ninow led seven Stanford throwers to the NCAA Outdoor Championships, and two throwers to Pac-10 titles.

Ninow came to Stanford after coaching the throwers at the University of San Francisco. There, Ninow coached the female school record holder and conference champion in the javelin, and his male throwers scored a total of 32 points at the conference championships.

As a student-athlete at UCLA, Ninow was a two-time Pac-10 and West Regional competitor.

"Andrew is a student of the sport," Floreal said. "He eats, drinks and breaths throws. That's his passion. Coming from UCLA, where he was coached by Art Venegas, he's learned from the best. Art is someone who developed his throwers not only while they were there, but many of them are now great throws coaches around the country. Andrew is one of those young, bright minds in throws coaching."
