Texas A&M track and field coach Pat Henry (right) and sprint coach Vince Anderson talk in 2014 before the NCAA Outdoor Meet.

Texas A&M veteran assistant track and field coach Vince Anderson is no longer with the program.

“Vince Anderson will not return as a member of the staff next year,” A&M head coach Pat Henry said in a release. “Vince has been a loyal and dedicated assistant for many years. He is a good man, one of principal and conviction. This change will be difficult, but it will be part of our program’s growth. I want to wish Vince the best in whatever he decides to do.”

Anderson just completed his 15th season with the Aggies. He came to A&M when Henry was hired from LSU. Anderson’s specialty was men’s and women’s hurdles and women’s sprinters.

Anderson was at Tennessee for 16 seasons prior to A&M.

Anderson was part of nine national championships at A&M.

This season, the A&M women were 10th at the NCAA Indoor Meet and fourth at the NCAA Outdoor Meet. The men were 11th at the NCAA Indoor Meet and sixth at the NCAA Outdoor Meet.
