Cross country coach reaches the finish line

WCC Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year in 2000, John Maloney, resigns to focus on his growing family.

Santa Clara University men’s cross country coach John Maloney resigned in the spring to focus on his growing family. A 1985 graduate of Santa Clara, Maloney has served as the Broncos’ distance coach since 1993, after serving as an assistant for six seasons. Since that time, the Broncos have placed fourth or better in the past nine West Coast Conference championships, highlighted by school-best second-place finishes in 1996, 2000, 2001, and 2002. Maloney was named the WCC Men’s Coach of the Year following the 2000 and 2001 league championships. His teams have featured 12 first team All-WCC selections, 17 WCC honorable mention picks, one conference Freshman of the Year honoree, and 16 WCC All- Academic performers. In addition, six of his past eight teams were recognized by the U.S. Cross Country Coaches Association for their outstanding academic achievement.
