Rob Assise is in his 17th year teaching math and coaching track and field at Homewood-Flossmoor High School in the south suburbs of Illinois. In 4 years as the boy’s jump coach, he has coached 15 state qualifiers, 11 finalists, and 8 medalists. In his 12 seasons with the girl’s program (9 as head coach), he worked primarily with sprinters and hurdlers. During that span, HF had 91 state qualifiers, 49 all-state athletes, 13 runner-ups, and 4 state champions. He is nothing more than a sprint coach disguised as a jump coach who enjoys connecting dots. Coach Assise has also coached football (5 seasons) and cross country (6 seasons). He is an author for ITCCCA, Simplifaster, Track-Football Consortium, and Just Fly Sports.
Rob Assise coached the 2019 triple jump state champ, Quinton Stringfellow (49’4”). Stringfellow also placed 4th in the long jump, 23’3”.
