Assistant Coach Ed Moran
- Ed Moran is in his fifth season on the William and Mary staff, moving into the volunteer ranks after four years as a full-time assistant. A four-time All-American for the College, Moran has continued his career as a professional runner with five appearances on the U.S. National Team, achieving the Olympic “A” qualifying standard at 5,000m and 10,000m in 2007 and winning the 5,000m gold medal at the 2007 Pan-American Games. This summer, he was one of 16 W&M alumni named to the CAA Silver Anniversary Cross Country team.
A professionally-sponsored runner with Nike, Moran raced unsponsored at the 2005 USAT&F Track and Field Championships shortly after earning his fourth All-America nod. He boasted an impressive debut, running well below his previous personal record in the 5,000m (13:39.70, second-best in school history, set a scant month-and-a-half earlier) to finish in 13:25.87. This time placed him only 49 hundredths of a second shy of the school record, running as the fastest amateur in the field of 24 runners. In 2007, he won the gold medal at the Pan-American Games with a meet-record time of 13:25.60, and in 2008, finished fourth at the U.S. Olympic Trials in the 10,000m run.
In his six-year collegiate career, Moran racked up three all-conference and All-Southeast honors (never finishing worse than third), and was twice conference champion and Athlete of the Year in cross country. On the track, he earned multiple all-conference nods, was named the 2003 CAA Male Athlete of the Year and was the 2005 IC4A and CAA champion in the 5,000m. He earned dual degrees in government and finance in 2003 and a Masters in Public Policy from the College in 2005, and is currently enrolled in the MBA program at the Mason School of Business.
