Nanyo Segura is entering his first season as the Hurdles coach for Riverside Community College. Segura coached at Indio High School from 2004-2008 and led the Rajahs to three-consecutive cross country All-Desert Valley League championships and coached multiple CIF qualifiers and one state qualifier. He has been named Coach of the Year on two occasions while continuing the winning tradition at Indio High School. Segura has attended many coaching clinics while being a part of the emerging elite coaching camp at the Chula Vista Olympic center in 2008 organized by USATF. He also holds the Accredited Interscholastic Coaching Certification and the Level One Track and Field Coaching certification from USATF. He is currently working towards his level two certification.
In the last three years, Segura was given the opportunity to become the Cross Country and Track & Field Head Coach at Vista del Lago High School in Moreno Valley.

He is a firm believer that everyone has the potential to get to the next level athletically and personally if they just trust the process.
