William and Mary men’s cross country coach Alex Gibby ’97 is reportedly leaving the Tribe to coach cross country at the University of Michigan, according to a source close to the team.
Gibby has not officially resigned from the College yet. Assuming a successful background check is completed by Michigan, Gibby will then resign before starting his new role with the Wolverines. He has told his team of his intentions.
Gibby led the College to a fifth placing showing at this year’s NCAA Cross Country National Championship, coaching three athletes to All-American honors. He was named the Southeast Region Coach of the Year for the second straight season. He led the Tribe to its 10th straight CAA title while being named CAA coach of the year for the seventh consecutive fall.
Gibby also coached the middle distance and long distance track and field runners during the winter and spring.
The athletic department has made no official announcement. An announcement is expected no later than Monday.
