Aaron Seminski enters his first season with the Sooners as a volunteer assistant, working alongside Head Coach Jim VanHootegem with horizontal jumps and men's sprints.
Seminski comes to Norman from College Station, Texas, having served as a volunteer assistant for the Texas A&M Aggies, where he worked with horizontal jumpers and mutli-event athletes for the 2016-2017 seasons.
Starting in February 2017, Seminski served as the Aggies' interim horizontal jumps coach. He guided Jeffrey Prothro to a runner-up finish in the triple jump in the 2017 SEC Outdoor Championships and NCAA Second Team All-America honors, with an improvement of 15.89 meters to 16.17 meters in the event, during his senior campaign.
Additionally, Seminski coached freshman LaJarvia Brown to a impressive first-year campaign in which she was a 2017 NCAA West Regional meet qualifier, finishing 14th in the competition, a mere two places out of advancing to the NCAA Championships. During the season, Seminski aided Brown to an improvement of 12.74 meters to 13.07 meters in the triple jump.
A former sprinter and graduate of the University of Arizona, Seminski also previously served as an assistant coach and director of operations at Central Michigan University.
Seminski has also worked with the United States Olympic Committee in Para-Athletics and most recently served with the Michael Johnson Performance Center in Dallas as a Sports Performance Specialist.
