Former Buckeye All-American Rosalind Joseph (Goodwin) is in her second season as associate head coach at Ohio State and sixth season overall with the women's track and field team. 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. 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 indoor (6.32m/20-9.00) and outdoor (6.39m/20-11.75) long jump. 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 and Field Championships.
In five seasons with the Scarlet and Gray, Joseph has worked closely with the Buckeyes' horizontal and vertical jumpers. In 2013, Abie Ehimwenman won a bronze medal in the long jump at the Big Ten indoor championships, while Adenike Pedro placed fourth in the long jump at the conference outdoor meet. Two years earlier Kelcey McKinney won the Big Ten outdoor triple jump title 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 was married in the fall of 2006 to Dexter Joseph. The couple resides in Columbus with their daughter, Gabrielle.
