Coleman Weibley will finish his tenure with the Florida State Seminoles on Friday, as he has accepted a job with Mercersburg Academy in southern Pennsylvania.
Weibley spent the entire 2012-2013 season, and the first part of this season, as the Director of Swimming and Diving Operations at Florida State and as the head coach of Club Seminole.
Prior to that, he spent two seasons as the Director of Swimming and Diving Operations for the Tennessee men’s and women’s programs, a job he left just after the merger to make that a combined coed program.
Weibley will take a new role with the historic prep school program at Mercersburg as an Assistant Director of Summer and Extended program and assisting head coach Pete Williams with the high school program. Among the Olympians produced by the Mercersburg swim program in its almost 180-year history are 1984 100 back silver medalist and 1986 World Champion Betsy Mitchell, 1984 Olympic 800 free relay champion Richard Saeger; 1924 Olympic 800 free relay champion Harry Glancy; and SwimSwam co-founder and 1992 Olympic 200 fly and 400 medley relay gold medalist Mel Stewart.
Coleman told us on Sunday that he was excited about the new opportunity, noting that it takes him closer to his hometown of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where his family still lives.
