The track and field teams of Florida State University, (variously Florida State or FSU), are currently coached by Bob Braman and compete in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

History[edit]

The FSU men's Track & Field team won the NCAA National Championship 3 times in a row from 2005-2007. Since 2006 Head Coach Bob Braman and Associate Head Coach Harlis Meaders helped lead individual champions in the 200 m (Walter Dix), the triple jump (Rafeeq Curry), and the shot put (Garrett Johnson) to consecutive outdoor national titles. Individual runners-up were Walter Dix in the 100 m, Ricardo Chambers in the 400 m, and Tom Lancashire in the 1500 m. Others scoring points in the National Championship were Michael Ray Garvin in the 200 m (8th), Andrew Lemoncello in the 3000 m steeplechase (4th), Rafeeq Curry in the long jump (6th), and Garrett Johnson in the discus (5th).[1] In 2007, when FSU won its second straight men's Track & Field NCAA National Championship when Dix became the first person to hold the individual title in the 100 m, 200 m, and 4*100 m Relay at the same time.[2]

The construction of the Mcintosh Track and Field Building

The Florida State Seminoles have a new track and field building complex on the south end of Mike Long Track, the Mcintosh Track and Field Building, named after Michael A. Mcintosh.

On February 7, 2010, the Seminoles vacated their 2007 Men's Outdoor Track and Field NCAA Championship in the wake of an academic cheating scandal.
