Jason  Dunn

Director of Operations

A coaching veteran of over 20 years, Jason Dunn returned to the University of Virginia in the fall of 2016 as the track and field/cross country program's director of operations. 

Dunn, who had stints at Stanford, Kentucky and Oklahoma upon leaving Virginia, was the head cross country coach at UVA from 2004-08 and an assistant from 2000-04.

While at UVA, Dunn coached four men's and four women's teams to the NCAA Cross Country Championships and led the men's squads to ACC titles in 2005 and 2007. Both the men's and women's teams qualified for the national meet in 2005, marking the first time in school history both advanced in the same season. Dunn was named the ACC Men's Cross Country Coach of the Year in 2005 and 2007.
A total of 17 of Dunn's cross country runners earned 28 All-ACC honors during his time with the program, and eight runners earned nine individual ACC Championships under his direction. Seven Cavaliers earned conference honors in 2005 as the men's team won the conference title for the first time since 1984. Additionally, Dunn led 23 runners to 40 all-region honors and five to All-America status.
Before Virginia, Dunn spent time on the staffs at Arizona State and William & Mary.

Dunn graduated in 1996 from William & Mary with a bachelor's degree in government. He later received his master's degree in curriculum and instruction with a physical education emphasis from Arizona State in 1999.

Dunn and his wife, the former Ann Detmer, reside in Earlysville.
