Molly Jones is in her third season as assistant coach for the University of Iowa track and field team. She coaches pole vault, high jump, and multi-events, including the heptathlon and decathlon.

Since joining the staff, Jones has guided three multi-event athletes to personal-bests and spots on the program's list of all-time top 10 performers.

In her first season at Iowa, Jones led Khanishah Williams to a Big Ten title in the women's high jump, and helped Kevin Spejcher place runner-up at the conference championship. Both student-athletes qualified for the NCAA Championships for the first time in their careers.

Prior to joining the Hawkeyes, Jones spent two seasons as a volunteer coach at Florida State. From 2011-13, she assisted with short sprints, jumps, multi-events and javelin. She worked with six NCAA All-Americans, and helped guide the Seminoles to ACC championships in 2012 and 2013.

She also helped coach nine conference champions and five Olympians during her time in Tallahassee.

Jones earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Princeton University in 2006, and a Master of Science degree from Florida State in 2012. She is a certified sports nutritionist from the International Society of Sports Nutrition, and earned her USTFCCCA Technical Coaches Certification in 2012. In July 2013, she added the USTFCCCA Track and Field Academy Jump Specialist Certification.
