Occidental Hire?

So maybe what you want to say (about swimming) doesn't quite fit into one of our other categories. This is the place for you.

Occidental Hire?

Anyone know who this new Head Coach is at Occidental? It seems strange they would hire someone with such little experience.

He dove (and swam) in the conference. I agree that hiring a diver to run a swim program that had been reborn under the previous young coach is an odd way to move forward.
Once a competitive swimmer, you can become anything.

Word I heard is that the old coach Kuhn was dissatisfied with the job security provided by his contract at Occidental. I'm guessing he left voluntarily. Kind of unfortunate for Oxy as their women swam great this year at conference, and their men's team also swam fairly well for its size. Then again, I also heard that a few of his top swimmers weren't big fans of him, so maybe this news isn't all bad.
