Monique Morgan is in her first season as a member of the Villanova coaching staff in 2014-15. In her role as a volunteer assistant coach, Morgan will primarily assist associate head coach Anthony Williams in working with the Wildcats sprinters and hurdlers. Morgan is a former two-time All-American for Villanova who has gone on to achieve a great deal of success in the international ranks.
During the summer of 2014, Morgan won the Jamaican national title in the 100 meter hurdles. She had the fastest overall time in the preliminary heats and then posted a winning time of 12.96 in the final. The victory secured a spot for Morgan on the Jamaican team which represented the country at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. She previously won a gold medal for Jamaica in the 100 meter hurdles at the XXIV Central American and Caribbean Senior track & field championships in July 2013.
Morgan competed for the Wildcats during her own undergraduate career and was a two-time All-American in the hurdles. She registered an eighth place finish in the 100 meter hurdles outdoors in 2006 and followed that up by coming in eighth in the 60 meter hurdles indoors in 2007. Morgan also advanced as far as the national semifinals in the 100 meter hurdles on two other occasions. She was the BIG EAST champion in the 100 meter hurdles in 2007 and won the 60 meter hurdles at the conference meet in both 2005 and 2007.
Away from the track, Morgan was just as successful academically during her time as a student-athlete. She was named to the BIG EAST All-Academic Team all four years of her Wildcats career and, as a senior, was voted onto the Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area Team for women's track & field. Morgan was also a three-time selection to the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Academic Team.
