Hakon DeVries joined the University of Kentucky coaching staff after working under Coach Edrick Floreal for three years as a Volunteer Assistant at Stanford. As the Assistant Cross Country and Track Coach, DeVries will be working with the women's distance runners.
In 2012, DeVries coached the Stanford school record holder in the indoor and outdoor 800m as well one first-team and two second-team All-America honorees. In his three years as an assistant, Stanford's distance runners amassed 35 first-team and 17 second-team All-America honors by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association in cross country, indoor and outdoor track.
DeVries also ran at Stanford with Floreal serving as the head coach. While a student-athlete, DeVries was a two-time All-America selection in track and a critical member of the cross country team as well. DeVries scored in each of the NCAA cross country championship races and helped guide the Cardinal to a third-place national finish in 2008 and a fourth-place finish in 2006.
