The Florida State Seminoles have added a second coach to their revamped coaching staff under new head coach Neal Studd.
“I’d like to thank (former head coach) Pete Lindsay for allowing me to be part of the last years of his career as coach for Miami (OH) University.” Carrington said of his time at Miami. “Pete helped me discover more of the pieces to my puzzle for coaching. His mentoring and friendship are invaluable to my development.”
Carrington has spent the previous two seasons as an assistant coach with Miami University in Ohio, and also has four years at Duke on his resume.
The Miami programs will combine genders next season under Hollie Bonewit-Cron, but Carrington had worked with the men’s program over the last two seasons. Last year, the program finished 5th of 7 teams at the Mid-American Conference Championships.
Carrington also has head coaching experience on his resume – from 2009-2011 he led the program at Division III Southwestern University in Texas, which included coaching the program’s first ever swimming All-American.
Earlier today, SwimSwam reported that Florida State has also hired Ozzie Quevedo, who will serve as the new head assistant coach for the Seminoles.
