In the end, a Head coach's job is to say nice things to the media, keep his athletes out of trouble and get the relays to pass the baton around the track. Lananna did pretty well on all accounts in Daegu, Korea (as did Women's head coach Connie Price-Smith). Here is what Gary Morgan got from Head Coach Vinn Lananna:

"We had a great championship. Sets us up well for London 2012. Fantastic performances in the 1,500m and the triple jumps. We had a great mix of Veteran and new athletes. We had some good performances and some not so good performances. Potential is there to exceed what we have done. 25 medals is pretty damn good. I have watched these guys the last eight days and they are working really hard. I don't know if we have exceeded , but have met our expectations."
