Reiber is in his fourth season as a member of the Saint Leo men's and women's cross country and track coaching staff. A four-year student-athlete at Marietta College, Reiber came to the Lions after one year as the volunteer assistant coach at his alma mater.

In his second year with the Lions, Reiber helped guide Saint Leo's first ever male Sunshine State Conference Freshman of the Year in Carl Dunne. After a standout season, Dunne made a trip to the NCAA Championship race in Joplin, Missouri. 

Reiber completed his first full season as the Lions’ assistant in 2011-12. His efforts on the sidelines allowed for the most productive seasons on both the men’s and women’s side, with the men breaking three all-time records. The women, led by freshman standout Tereza Novotna, secured the first-ever trip to the NCAA Championships as an individual, as well as earning SSC Runner and Freshman of the Year status. 

As the assistant coach, Reiber has contributed to multiple broken records and led the teams to numerous USTFCCCA All-Academic honors. 

During his coaching stint at Marietta, Reiber assisted the team's first-ever male runner to the Division III National Meet, as well as multiple male and female Academic All-Region awards.

In addition, Reiber also spent time as the Avon Lake High School (Avon, OH) volunteer assistant in 2006.

While at Marietta College, Reiber found himself on the Dean's List on multiple occasions before graduating with a Bachelors' Degree in Health Science and a minor in Coaching.

In addition, the Ohio native is USATF (United States of America Track & Field) Level II Endurance Certified.

At Saint Leo, his primary responsibilities will include the daily coaching of the student-athletes, recruiting, and travel accommodations.
