Fred Kerley to be coached by Olympian Quincy Watts
Tokyo Olympics 100 metres silver medallist Fred Kerley has announced a coaching change ahead of the Paris 2024 Olympics.
Kerley posted on social media that he is now being coached by the 1992 Olympic 400m gold medalist Quincy Watts, an assistant at the University of California who also guides the career of world and Olympic silver medalist Rai Benjamin.
Kerley who won the world 100 metres title in eugene last year failed to live up to his pre-championship hype as his compatriot Noah Lyles won both the 100 and 200m titles at the recent World Championships in Budapest .
