Lewis tries coaching

Olympic great and former University of Houston star Carl Lewis is joining the track and field coaching staff at his alma mater. The school said Thursday that the nine-time Olympic gold medalist is joining Cougars head coach Leroy Burrell as a volunteer coach. In all, Lewis won 10 Olympic medals and 10 world championship medals in his career. The six-time All-American won six national titles and nine individual conference titles in two seasons at Houston. He held the world record in the men’s 100-meter dash from 1991 until Burrell broke it in 1994. The two were part of the U.S. relay team that set the 100-meter world record at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.
