Jeff Stiles enters his 18th season as the head coach of the Washington University in St. Louis men's and women's cross country programs, and his 10th as the head coach of the Bears' men's and women's track & field programs in 2018-19.

Stiles has led the WashU to become a nationally competitive program in all three seasons. He led the WashU women’s teams to first national titles in program history in cross country (2011), indoor track & field (2017) and outdoor track & field (2017), while guiding the men to program best placements in cross country (2011-third), indoor track & field (2011-eighth) and outdoor track & field (2011-fourth).

WashU’s national success has led to National Coach of they Year honors for Stiles in cross country (women 2011), indoor track & field (women 2017) and outdoor track & field (women 2017) by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). In addition, Stiles has earned seven Midwest Region Cross Country Coach of the Year honors, 19 combined UAA XC Coaching Staff of the Year accolades and 22 combined UAA T&F Coaching Staff of the Year honors.

The WashU women’s XC/T&F program has also won three consecutive Deb Vercauteren Awards, annually given to the top program that places at all three national titles in the academic year. The Bears women were also named the 2017 Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field Scholar Team of the Year.

CROSS COUNTRY
In his 17 seasons at the helm of WashU cross country, Stiles' teams have combined to win 21 University Athletic Association (UAA) titles. He helped guide 22 Bears to 38 All-American finishes. The WashU women have earned top-four finishes in four consecutive seasons, while the men have nine-straight top-20 placements.

INDOOR TRACK & FIELD
Stiles took over the track & field program 10 years ago and has guided WashU to 11 UAA indoor titles, seven by the men and four by the women including three straight. The WashU women have scored points nationally in every season but Stile’s first year leading the Bears, including 44 points to win the 2017 DIII National Championship. The men’s program has twice placed in the top-10 at nationals and has accumulated 13 All-American finishes by 14 individuals. The women’s team has totaled 37 All-American honors by 25 individuals.

OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD
The women’s outdoor program has scored points every single year with Stiles leading the charge, which culminated in a national title in 2017. The women have earned trophies in four consecutive years while 26 athletes combined for 55 All-American finishes in his tenure. The men and women have combined for 13 UAA titles, led by eight from the men. The men have had two top-10 finishes under Stiles at nationals with 13 individuals earning 21 All-American honors.

PERSONAL
Stiles graduated from North Central in 1999 with a bachelor's degree in physical education and earned his master's degree in secondary education from Southwest Missouri State in August 2001. The five-time All-American was named to the North Central College Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2018. Stiles and his wife, Heather, have three children: Anya, Kiera and Micah.
