“I am honored for the opportunity and am excited that I get to be around the other coaches from other schools and just to help Team USA get better,” Redwine said.

“Being around those athletes, there’s not a lot that they really need from me, but I will get more out of it than they will. Just to serve them is a great opportunity.”

Redwine has coached teams to 23 national titles, including the Kansas women winning the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships, which marked the first women’s team title in KU history.
