Rob Jarvis enters his third season with the Bruin men as a volunteer coach specializing in the jumps and decathlon. Jarvis came to UCLA after having served as an assistant coach for the sprints, hurdles, relays and multi-events at Azusa Pacific University for five years.

During the 2011 season, the decathletes thrived under his guidance as all four (Marcus Nilsson, Dominic Giovannoni, David Thomas and Trent Perez) finished in the top 10 at Pac-10s with Perez placing third with a lifetime-best score of 7315 pts. That score also moved him into UCLA's all-time top 10 at the No. 8 spot. The jumps group also did well under his guise as Jonathan Clark competed at NCAAs and jumped a lifetime-best of 51-9.25 outdoor and 52-5.25 indoors in the triple jump.

While at APU he helped coach the team to a combined eight NAIA National Championship titles (six men, two women) and seven GSAC conference titles. He also contributed to the development of seven individual NAIA National Champions, 49 NAIA All-Americans, 10 NAIA All-American relays, three USA Junior National Championship qualifiers, and one USA Outdoor National Championship qualifier.

Jarvis also assisted fellow APU alum, Olympic and World Champion Decathlete Bryan Clay with meet preparation and training, as well as traveled with Clay to numerous meets including the USA Olympic Trials and IAAF World Championships. He also owns RFTL Timing, which provides fully automatic timing and meet management services for collegiate and high school level track meets. He is USATF Coaching Education Level I and Level II (sprints/hurdles/relays) certified.

Jarvis competed for Azusa Pacific where he served as a team captain and helped the team to two NAIA national team titles and three conference crowns. While on the team he was a member of an NAIA National Champion 4x400 Relay team and earned four NAIA All-American honors. He is recognized on APU's All-Time Top 10 List for the 400m, 4x100, and 4x400.

Jarvis graduated from Azusa Pacific in 2006 with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing.
