PHOENIX, Ariz. — Dan Pfaff has been named to the dual roles of Head Coach of the World Jumps Center and Human Performance Director of the World Athletics Center, based in Phoenix, Ariz.
Pfaff, who has coached nine Olympic medalists and five world record-holders during his famed 39-year career, was appointed by World Athletics Center founder John Godina.
“Coach Pfaff represents the highest level of coaching in our sport,” said Godina, a four-time World Champion and two-time Olympic medalist in the shot put.
