Coach Fraizer Bio Get Acrobat Reader

Tyler Fraizer enters his second season as an assistant track and field coach at the University of Memphis. Fraizer continues to work closely with the Tiger javelin throwers, pole vaulters and other field event athletes under his former coach Kevin Robinson. Fraizer also continues his duties as the coordinator of track and field operations for the Tigers.

Following the completion of his track and field career at the University of Memphis, Fraizer has taken his extensive knowledge and expertise of several field events to the coaching arena.

The 2007-08 season was Fraizer's first as a coach, but he had an immediate impact. Javelin thrower Christian McDonald had another impressive season, qualifying for the second time for the NCAA MidEast Regionals, where he set a personal-best throw of 64.9m (212-11).

Fraizer also assists with the U of M pole vaulters. Ashton Baldwin and Whitney Bolton both grabbed All-C-USA marks at the indoor and outdoor championships in 2008. Both vaulters tied their own indoor school record with a height of 3.75m (12-04.00). Baldwin also broke an outdoor pole vault school record at the Arkansas John McDonnell Invitational with a mark of 3.70m (12-01.5)

Before Fraizer joined the Tiger track and field coaching staff in Fall 2007, he was a member of the Memphis men's track and field team from 2005-07. While an athlete at Memphis, he was part of the 2007 C-USA Conference Outdoor Championship team, finishing fourth in the javelin at the C-USA Championships.

Prior to his time as an athlete at the University of Memphis, Fraizer spent time at Hutchinson Community College, where he earned All-American honors as a sophomore. He was a two-time qualifier for the NJCAA National Championships in the javelin in his freshman and sophomore campaign at Hutchinson and a Junior Olympic qualifier.

Frazier graduated with a bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies, from the University of Memphis in 2007. He is a native of Wichita, Kansas, attended Bishop Carroll Catholic HS.
