11 NCAA Division I Programs Currently Awaiting New Head Swim Coaches

In a year that seems to have much more turnover of head coaches in NCAA Division I swimming than usual, 11 programs are still without head coaches for next season. Wisconsin and TCU also had head coaching vacancies, but have recently seen those positions filled by Yuri Suguiyama and James Winchester respectively.

The reasoning for the vacancies is varied, with everything from longtime coaches simply retiring, to being dismissed for allegations of abuse. More schools will likely have vacancies in the future as coaches leave their positions to fill the vacancies that are currently open. The complete list of current vacancies is below:

Auburn (Men’s and Women’s) Brett Hawke
Florida (Men’s and Women’s) Gregg Troy
Virginia Tech Ned Skinner
Northwestern (combining programs) Abbey Steketee (women’s)/Jarod Schroeder (Men’s)
George Washington (Men’s and Women’s) James Winchester
Ball State (Men’s) Bob Thomas
Stony Brook (Women’s) Janelle Atkinson
Georgia Southern (Women’s) Laura Thomas
Unknown, but Kristin Walker is serving as interim head coach
Delaware (Men’s and Women’s) John Hayman
Holy Cross Barry Parenteau
St. Francis College Brooklyn Brian Guidera
No announcement made, job posting listed.

Here is a short recap of the 2 programs that already filled their vacancies:
