“Ryan has great experience as a track athlete and training athletes,” AHS Activities Director Lisa Quednow said. “His experience in the decathlon allowed him to learn many of the important fundamentals of many of the events, and I feel that will be a great benefit to our student athletes.”

Timm worked in the Watauga County School District in Boone, NC for two years and he coached middle school track and worked summers with the Tailwinds Track Club.

Timm moved to Austin in 2013 and he now teaches fourth grade at Southgate Elementary.

Former Austin head track and field coach Tony Einertson resigned after last season.
