About Head Coach Peter Linn (via EMU)

The 2014-15 season marks head coach Peter Linn’s 26th season as the head coach of the Eastern Michigan University men’s swimming team. Linn also took over as head coach of the women’s program in 2004.

In his 26 seasons as men’s head coach, Linn has guided the Eagles to 21 Mid-American Conference Championships, including eight in a row from 1988-1996. EMU finished as conference runner-up during the other four seasons of Linn’s guidance. The Eagles are currently riding a 66-MAC dual meet unbeaten streak, last having dropped a MAC dual meet during the 1997-98 season.

In 2012, the men’s team won the MAC Championship meet in Carbondale, Illinois. Jacob Hanson was named the 2012 Most Outstanding Swimmer for the third consecutive season. In addition, Hanson was also named an All-American for the second consecutive season. He currently holds the 100-backstroke, 200-backstroke and 200 individual medley MAC records.

The Green and White garnered six individual titles through three days and landed nine athletes on the All-MAC squads. Jeffrey Craig, Mike Fisher, Krzysztof Gilski, Andrew Henry, Jacob Hanson, Brian Moore and Michael Swain were named first team, while Erik Gissen and Andrew Saunders earned second team accolades.

Throughout his tenure as men’s coach, Linn has a 176-55 overall record, including a 107-6 MAC mark. He has been named MAC Coach of the Year six times, while coaching seven MAC Swimmers of the Year (Jeff Pillars, Ed Wagner, Bryson Tan, Dan Wohl, Derick Roe, Griggs, and Hanson) and six Senior Swimmers of the Year (Mark Leonard, Eric Seidelman, Tab, Doug Fleming and Wohl). He helped develop NCAA All-American swimmer Leonard, as well as NCAA honorable mention All-American Jeff Shoemaker. Former EMU swimmers Kevin Doak and Derick Roe were both in action during the summer of 2008 at the U.S. Olympic qualifying meet.
