Blaine Wiley enters his sixth year at South Plains College. After serving two years as an assistant coach, he was promoted to Associate Head Coach in 2009. Before coming to SPC in 2006, Wiley spent four seasons as an assistant coach at Texas State University.
Wiley's duties include working with the men's and women's sprinters, hurdlers, jumpers and relay teams. He received his USATF Level I Track and Field certification in December of 2002 and earned his USATF Level II certification in the jumps in July 2006. He also attended the 2007 USA Track and Field High Performance Summit, a USATF Level III conference, and numerous other clinics and conventions in coaching education.
In 2011, Wiley's group not only enjoyed national success in the NJCAA, but Wiley also oversaw athletes who qualified and competed at the IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea.
During the season, Wiley's athletes garnered a total of 40 All-American honors and 23 NJCAA Championships indoors and outdoors in all events. Additionally, athletes coached by Wiley set or tied nine men's and women's records in both the indoor and outdoor season. Jura Levy, who set five individual school records in 2011, was named indoor and outdoor co-Athlete of the Meet along with teammate Natoya Goule. Rondell Bartholomew, meanwhile, led the world for much of the year in the 400 meters after running a school record time of 44.63 seconds in early April. Under Wiley's guidance, Bartholomew ran a NJCAA record time of 45.84 seconds in the indoor 400-meter dash and also helped the men's 4x400 M Relay to an indoor national record of 3:05.14.
After the season, Bartholomew went on to finish sixth in the 400-meter final at the IAAF World Championships while Levy earned a silver medal as part of Jamaica's 4x100-meter relay.
Success was abundant in 2010 when Wiley helped guide South Plains College to a second consecutive sweep of the 2010 NJCAA outdoor championships in which Wiley oversaw five athletes claim individual titles in six different events. Additionally, Wiley coached men's and women's 4x400 meter relay and the women's 4x100 meter relay to national championships. Dellon Williams was named men's athlete of the meet at the NJCAA Outdoor Championships and Wiley was voted men's Assistant Coach of the Year. All totaled, 30 athletes earned All-American honors in 38 events. 12 school records went down in 2010 and Wiley's athletes also helped set an NJCAA national record in the women's 4x200 meter relay.
Wiley made an immediate impact on the program as his athletes won a combined 23 NJCAA national championships and earned 80 NJCAA All-American awards from 2007-2009. During his first three seasons, athletes Derrick Reescano (2007 Indoor), Patrick Lee (2007 Outdoor), and Latoy Williams (2009 Outdoor) all earned Athlete of the Year honors and the SPC Texan and Lady Texan track teams won seven team championships that include a sweep of all four men's and women's indoor and outdoor titles in 2009. Wiley was voted by his peers as NJCAA Assistant Coach of the Year for men and women in 2009 and in 2008 earned the award as top men's assistant coach.
2011 is not the only year Wiley's athletes have excelled outside the college circuit. In 2008 Renny Quow finished seventh place at the 29th Olympic games in Beijing, China. Quow followed that up with a bronze medal finish at the 2009 IAAF World Championhsips in Berlin, Germany. By the end of the 2009 summer track season, Quow (44.53) and Latoy Williams (44.73) had the second and fourth fastest times in the world over 400 meters.
During Wiley's four seasons as an assistant at Texas State, the Bobcat women and men won 7 Southland Conference (SLC)team championships. His sprinters claimed 16 SLC individual and relay championships, 112 All-SLC awards, 63 all-time top 10 performances, 28 NCAA regional qualifying marks, and eight school records.
Before joining the staff at Texas State, Wiley was a standout sprinter for the Bobcats from 1997-2000. During his time as an athlete at Texas State (formerly Southwest Texas) he was a member of the 1998 and 2000 outdoor conference championship teams, was twice named team captain and was a member of the school record Sprint Medley Relay team. He ran 6.20 in the 55 meters to rank in the top 20 in the world in 2000. His 6.66 in the 60 meters stands as the school record for times run at altitude and he also ran a career best of 10.29 seconds in the 100 meter dash. Wiley graduated from Texas State University in May 2000 with a degree in Business Administration. He completed his Master's degree in Secondary Education in May 2008. He and his wife, Julie, have two sons, Hayden Blaine Alan, and Landon James.
