Chris Waller Named UCLA Gymnastics Head Coach – UCLA:

illyria-and-her-pet:

“It was my great honor to have worked alongside Miss Val for 17 years, and to take the helm of this storied program is a dream come true,” Waller said. “The lessons that she has taught our student-athletes over her tenure I have also learned. I am incredibly fortunate to have my first team as head coach be one that is filled with unquestionable leadership and talent. I have been a part of this Bruin Family since 1987 as a freshman on the NCAA Championship team and have been on this campus for the better part of 30 years. My blood runs Bruin blue, and I cannot wait to continue this journey.”

“I believe Chris embodies exactly what it means to be a Bruin: family, integrity, developing internal motivation, teaching and coaching the entire person, not just as an athlete,” said Bhardwaj. “He is a true leader in the most positive and motivating manner. Chris truly cares about the path and journey in life while focusing on enjoying and learning from the experience. I cannot think of anyone better suited than Chris Waller for UCLA’s women’s gymnastics head coaching position.”

“Having known Chris since he was an 18-year-old student-athlete here, it has been so exciting to see him grow into the man and the phenomenal coach that he is today,” said Kondos Field. “Chris was born to coach, and I can honestly say that so much of our program’s success since he’s been on this staff has been due to his contributions. He is a true student of the sport of gymnastics and has embraced the psychological side of coaching as much as he has the technical side. I am confident that Chris will sustain the culture and excellence of the program, and I am excited to see the next chapter of UCLA Gymnastics under his guidance.”
