Former Buckeye All-American Rosalind Joseph (Goodwin) is in her fourth season as associate head coach at Ohio State and eighth season overall with the Scarlet and Gray. She returned to coach at her alma mater in July of 2008 after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Auburn University.
Joseph was a two-time All-American in the triple jump as a collegiate athlete at Ohio State, placing fifth at the 2005 NCAA Outdoor Championships and sixth at the 2004 championships. A six-time Big Ten champion, Joseph won the Big Ten indoor triple jump and long jump titles in both 2004 and 2005, while also winning the 2004 outdoor triple jump and 2005 outdoor long jump crowns. A 2014 Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame inductee, she still holds Ohio State records in the outdoor triple jump (13.50m/44-3.50), the indoor triple jump (13.37m/43-10.50) and the outdoor long jump (6.39m/20-11.75). Joseph was also a 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials triple jump qualifier and the ninth-place finisher in the triple jump at the 2005 USA Track & Field Championships.
In seven seasons with the Scarlet and Gray, Joseph has worked closely with the Buckeyes' jumpers and multi-event athletes. Abie Ehimwenman has enjoyed tremendous success under Joseph's guidance the past three indoor seasons, winning the 2015 Big Ten long jump title and breaking her coach’s indoor school record in the event on her way to Second Team All-America honors. Ehimwenman was a Big Ten silver medalist in 2014 and a bronze medalist the year prior.
Kelcey McKinney won the Big Ten outdoor triple jump title in 2011 and, along with Ashley Galbraith, qualified for the NCAA East preliminaries. Galbraith would go on to compete at the NCAA championships, where she earned Honorable Mention All-America honors with an 18th-place finish in the high jump.
A 2006 graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in human ecology, Joseph and her husband, Dexter, reside in Columbus with their daughter, Gabrielle, and son, Harrison.
