Former UW All-American Jacob Predmore enters his second year as a volunteer assistant coach at Washington, where he works with his former event coach, Pat Licari, to train the Huskies' multi-event athletes.
In 2005, Predmore's first season at UW, he coached senior Grace Vela to an indoor school record in the pentathlon, and a sixth-place finish in the heptathlon at the Pac-10 Championships.
Prior to joining the UW coaching staff in 2005, Predmore coached vaulters and jumpers for one year at Bothell High School, and was an assistant track and field coach at Juanita High School from 2001-02.
A 2000 graduate of Washington, Predmore was one of the Huskies' most prolific multi-eventers, his lifetime-best score of 7,426 points ranking fifth in UW history. Predmore's seventh-place finish in the decathlon at the 2000 NCAA12 Championships earned the Husky his first-career All-America honor, and was the first by a UW men's multi-eventer since 1986.
Predmore also ranks among UW's all-time top-10 indoors in the long lump with a best of 23 feet, 4 1/2 inch.
Predmore, 28, graduated from Cedarcrest High School in Duvall, Wash., in 1996, and earned a bachelor's degree in economics from UW in 2000. He and his wife, Amanda, currently reside in Sammamish.
