    Northwestern head coach April Likhite announced on Aug. 25 that Jordan Horwitz, a three-sport all-conference runner at New Hampshire during his collegiate career, has joined the Wildcats as a volunteer assistant coach for the 2010 season. A 2008 graduate of UNH and a native of Evanston, Ill., Horwitz spent the last two years on the coaching staff at Rhodes College in Memphis.

    "Jordan is going to be great addition to our coaching staff and an outstanding resource for our team," Likhite said. "He enjoyed a successful running career across a wide range of distances at New Hampshire and also displayed great leadership skills. With the addition of Jordan as well as Patricia Loughlin to our team in 2010, I am very confident in my coaching staff moving forward."

    During his career at New Hampshire, Horwitz progressed from a walk-on athlete to a two-year team captain in cross country and track and field. He won three individual conference championships for the Wildcats, including the 2008 10K outdoor race in which he set the conference meet record with a time of 30:41.69. Horwitz was named the meet's Most Outstanding Conference Meet Track Performer.

    Horwitz, a member of New Hampshire cross country squads that won team conference titles in 2006 and 2007, received the America East Conference Scholar Athlete of the Year award following his senior season.

    While at Rhodes, Horwitz was a member of Lynx coaching staffs that were named the SCAC Coaching Staff of the Year for both men's and women's outdoor track and field. Horwitz worked with a Rhodes cross country program that sent four individuals to the NCAA Championships and qualified for the event as a team on the women's side.
