Kyle Whitmore hired as new Diablo Valley College track coach

Diablo Valley College announced today that it has hired Kyle Whitmore as its new track and field head coach.
Whitmore, 30, was the head track and field coach at Hercules High for the past six seasons. In the past two seasons, the Titans boys 1600-meter relay squad has finished in the top five in the CIF state championship finals, and the Hercules track and field squads qualified at least one athlete for the state championships in five of the six seasons Whitmore was the head coach. The Hercules girls won the Alameda Contra Costa Athletic League overall team title in 2009 and the boys won the overall ACCAL title in 2012. He was also the head cross country coach and the football team’s defensive coordinator for four seasons apiece.
“It was a very difficult decision to make .. because the relationships I’ve built with my current athletes,” Whitmore said. “I’ve always had an eye on the Contra Costa Community College District. I always watched to see if anything would come open.”
“One of my biggest motivations in taking this position is pushing these kids to the next level. That’s what I’m all about,” he said. “I want to create something really solid and sustainable.”
