Mark Gangloff, Head Coach

Mark Gangloff, a two-time Olympic gold medalist and one of the most dynamic young leaders in the world of collegiate swimming, was named the head coach for the men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs at the University of North Carolina in May 2019. Gangloff comes to UNC after seven years at the University of Missouri where he served as the Tigers’ associate head coach for the last two seasons.

In his seven years at Mizzou, Gangloff led the Tigers to five top-15 finishes at both the men’s and women’s NCAA Championships. The Tiger men posted back-to-back top-10 NCAA results in 2016 and 2017, with the 2016 team finishing a program-best eighth nationally and Fabian Schwingenschlogl winning the first NCAA title in school history in the 100 breaststroke. That same year the Tiger women also had an all-time best team finish, placing 11th overall.

Before his time at Missouri, Gangloff spent three years a volunteer assistant coach at Auburn, his alma mater. During his time on the Auburn coaching staff, he assisted with stroke technique, race strategy and strength and conditioning.

From 2007-09, Gangloff coached at Swim MAC Carolina in Charlotte, N.C., where he assisted in the development and implementation of program and training design. He also provided instruction on race strategy and post-race coaching for swimmers ages 10-18.

On the international stage, Gangloff made his first Olympic team in 2004, when he won a gold medal as part of the 400 medley relay in Athens. Four years later he qualified for the 2008 Olympic Games and was part of the 400 medley relay that won gold in Beijing.

At the World Championships, Gangloff was a three-time gold medalist in the 400 medley relay. He also won silver in the 50 breaststroke in 2005 and bronze in the same event in 2009. He was a team captain on both the 2009 and 2011 world teams as well as the 2010 Pan Pacific Championships and USA National Championships teams, the 2008 Short Court World Championships team and the 2010 Duel in the Pool, where he helped set a world record in the 400 medley relay.
