Coach Talley has been teaching English and coaching track and cross country at Davis since 2003. It is the only teaching/coaching job he has ever had - and there is no place he would rather be. He likes reading, golf, frisbee golf, beating Brad at fantasy football, and spending time with his girls.
Running - Coach Talley has been running since 9th grade. In high school he set the school records at Bingham in the 1600 (4:17) and the 3200 (9:05). He was 2-time all-state in cross country and qualified for the Footlocker Nationals as a senior where he placed 12th.

After college he moved up to the marathon where he ran a pr of 2:21.31 at the St. George Marathon in 2003 and competed at the 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials (placing 49th). One of his greatest running accomplishments is finishing the Wasatch 100 Mile Endurance Race in 2009.

Brad Anderson
Coach Anderson was born at a very young age in Litchfield Park, AZ. At the age of two, after several run- ins with local babies, his family moved to Morgan, UT.
It was after the move that he fell in love with running. His father was an avid runner,and racer, and Coach Anderson wanted to follow in his footsteps. He ran and won his first race in 3rd Grade. It was a kids K in Liberty, UT. After burning up the road in Tuff Skin jeans, and blue Roos Velcro shoes, He was hooked.
He ran quite a few races, on limited (Meaning none at all) training, for the next few years. He played soccer, basketball, baseball and football as well. But running was his true love.
When he entered Morgan High School there was no Cross Country Team. His Dad formed the team his sophomore year. Coach Anderson was Region Champion and All-Sate in track his Freshman year. Also region XC, and track Champion and all-state his sophomore year. His Junior Year he reached his goal of becoming State Champion in the 800 and 1,600. He was also named the State 2A Track Athlete of the Year in 1994. (Which according to really, really old people is not that long ago.) 
He played Basketball for the Morgan Trojans and placed 2nd at the State championships in 1994. He has brought much glory to the #20. Someone may or may not have even said he was the best player to ever step on the court in the Trojan gym. He is still hoping to have his number retired.
For most people learning to walk once was good enough, but not for Brad. September of 1994, two weeks into his senior year He was in a car accident. After a few weeks in a coma he had to learn to walk again. For a few months at the U of U hospital Brad learned to eat, walk,and be awesome again. Though the future looked bleak, he vowed he would run again, even if it weren't pretty.
With his High school running career over, he began coaching his senior year. He coached his High School sweetheart, and future wife to a State Title in the 800 meters. With his running career, seemingly over, he found his new love...coaching.

Coach Anderson coached at Morgan High school for the next 10 years coaching several State Champions,and one future Olympian (Lindsey Olson Anderson, 2008 Olympian in the steeplechase.), who is now lucky enough to call him her Brother-in-law.
But it was 2007 when his best pal Corbin came a calling. Coach Anderson joined forces with Coach Talley and have been the most powerful duo, Brad's mom says, that has ever existed. The only animosity that exists is in their relationship is in their fantasy football league.
Corbin is 6 weeks older than Brad and it is obvious when you look at the two of them.
Brad is married to his favorite high school sweetheart Amber. They have three handsome, male model quality, boys (Ethan, Spencer and Benjamin) which he packs with him on most track and cross country trips.
They live in Ogden and love the trails near their home. They enjoy running, camping, biking, scouring newspaper articles for punctuation errors and being with their boys.
There is no better program in America! Coach Anderson loves coaching at Davis High. And is proud to be a Dart!
