Caroline Maxvill Hired As New Miami (FL) Assistant

Caroline Maxvill will leave her native Texas and move East to Florida to take over the team’s assistant coaching role, the school announced on Tuesday. Maxvill had been an assistant at TCU for the last two seasons. Maxvill replaces Kelley McCallum, who spent two years as head coach Andy Kershaw’s assistant with the women’s-only swimming program.

“When I started the search for a new assistant, I knew I wanted someone that was loyal, sharp and who had great experience in swimming and recruiting,” Kershaw said. “Caroline fit that bill perfectly.  There is no doubt in my mind that she is one of the top young coaches in this sport and has a career full of success ahead of her.”

Prior to joining TCU, Maxvill was an assistant coach at Athens (Texas) High School, and was a 2011 graduate of Texas A&M University, where she once ranked as high as 8th on the Aggies’ all-time rankings in the 200 yard breaststroke. She was also a  Texas High School State Champion in the 100 breaststroke (4A – small schools) in 2007.

“I am super excited to be adding Caroline to the Hurricane swimming & diving family,” Kershaw said. “Just as importantly, I know she is excited too.”

“I believe our program is one that is on the rise, and I think Caroline is going to take us another step in that direction,” he said. “She is going to help Miami swimming & diving continue to work its way up the ACC and NCAA ladder, and I can’t wait to start working with her.

“The coaches that she has coached with and swam for had such great things to say about Caroline, I know this is the right fit for our team.”

In the 2014-2015 season, Miami didn’t have a single swimmer on their roster from the state of Texas, where Maxvill has lived most of her life, which will give her the opportunity to reach into new recruiting grounds for her new program.

“It is definitely a program on the rise and I am ready to help Coach Kershaw and the Hurricanes women continue to improve and reach new heights in the ACC,” Maxvill said. “Coach Kershaw has seen much success in the two years he has been at Miami, and I am excited to be a part of continuing that momentum.”
