Despite having no head coaching experience, Sullivan did serve as a volunteer assistant at Michigan (1999-2002), Illinois (2003-2007) and Florida State (2007-2013).
"It is an honor and privilege to be coming back to the University of Michigan as the head men's cross coach and assistant track coach," said Sullivan."As a former Wolverine student-athlete, I truly understand the pride and passion one has to compete with the block 'M' on their chest and I intend to bring the same pride and passion to my coaching.I have been blessed over the past 20 years to have both been coached by and coached alongside some of the great distance minds in NCAA and international track and field, and I look forward to bringing real melding of coaching strategies to this program. I also want to thank Coach Clayton for having the belief and faith in me to lead our Michigan distance runners."
