Chris Lawson returns for his second year as the assistant sprints and hurdles coach at Long Beach State.
Lawson was a four-time NCAA qualifier and All-Big West performer at LBSU from 2008-12. He was the 2012 Big West champion in the 400-meter hurdles and was also the runner-up in the 110m hurdles. Lawson advanced to the NCAA West Regional in both events.
As a junior, he qualified for the NCAA regional meet with a then personal-record 51.70 in the 400m hurdles. Lawson also garnered All-Big West honors in the 400m. As a freshman in 2008, he was an NCAA regional qualifier and conference runner-up in the 400H.
Lawson established personal bests of 14.07 in the 110H and 50.66 in the 400H. Both marks rank among the top-10 in school history. In addition, he is fourth in the program's indoor record books in the 60m hurdles (8.16).
Lawson graduated from Long Beach State in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in human development.
