Former Olympian Joseph Taiwo is in his third season as part of the Husky program, lending his knowledge and experience to Pat Licari in the jumps.
Taiwo, the father of current Husky Jeremy Taiwo, competed in the triple jump at the 1984 and 1988 Summer Olympic Games for Nigeria. Taiwo placed ninth in each Olympiad. He also placed fifth in the 1987 World Championships.
No stranger to the Pac-10, Taiwo attended Washington State from 1982-84, where he set the Pac-10 triple jump record of 57-0 1/2, a mark that still stands 25 years later. He was the Pac-10 triple jump champion in 1982 and 1984.
