Jeremy Wariner is in his seventh season as volunteer coach after signing a professional contract following his breakthrough 2004 season.

Wariner capped one of the most memorable season's in Baylor history by capturing the gold medal and leading the United States to a sweep in the 400 meters at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, with a school-record time of 44.00. He kept the gold medal in the Baylor family for the third straight Olympics, following Michael Johnson's performances in 1996 and 2000. Wariner then claimed his second gold medal by running the third leg of the U.S. 4x400-meter relay and handing the baton to Baylor teammate Darold Williamson.

Wariner became the first athlete to sweep the major 400-meter titles in one year in 2004, by winning the Olympic gold, the U.S. Championship and the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor titles. Wariner also helped Baylor capture the 4x400-meter relay NCAA Indoor and Outdoor championships, the indoor title with an NCAA-record time of 3:03.96.

In 2008, Wariner claimed the silver medal in the 400 meters at the Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Under the coaching of Michael Ford, Wariner anchored the U.S. men's 4x400-meter relay to a gold medal, setting a new Olympic record in the process. Wariner continued his dominance in the quarter-mile in 2007, winning each 400 meter race and capturing gold at the World Championships in Osaka, Japan. Wariner became the third-fastest ever over 400 meters with a personal best of 43.45. He also ran anchor leg at the World Championships in the 4x400-meter relay, helping the United States to gold in 2:55.56.

The 24-year-old Grand Prairie, Texas, native has dominated the quartermile on the pro circuits the past four years. In 2005, he claimed the U.S. title for the second straight year by edging Williamson, then blowing away the field at the World Championships in Helsinki, Finland, with a new personal best time of 43.93. He swept the 2006 IAAF Golden League meets and went undefeated during the outdoor season.
