Chantée Earl McBride begins her third season on head coach Alonzo Webb's staff as an assistant coach for middle and long distance events. A former Pitt standout in the 800 meters, McBride also made a name for herself on the national level after placing sixth at the U.S. Olympic trials in 2004.

As a student-athlete, McBride captured seven All-American honors, including the NCAA 800-meter crown in 2000. During her career at Pitt, McBride racked up four Big East and ECAC championships, as she placed second in the 800 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.
