He once held the world record in the men’s 100m (9.79/1999), won four Olympic medals (2000 – gold in the 100m and 4X100m relay; 2004 – 100m bronze, 4X100m silver) and was inducted into the USA Track & Field Hall of Fame in 2011. Johnny Gray is entering his fourth year as a full- time assistant and is the Bruins’ middle distance coach, specializing in the women’s and men’s 400m, 800m, 1,500m and 400m hurdles. Gray, a four-time U. S. Olympian in the 800m, still holds the American record in the outdoor (1:42.60) and indoor (1:45.00) 800m and was inducted into the USA Track & Field Hall of Fame in 2008.
