Franz Resseguie is returning home to Tualatin Hills to take over the Beaverton, Oregon club’s head coaching role that was vacated earlier this month with the termination of Linck Bergen. Resseguie was hired as the head assistant coach at the Dynamo Swim Club’s Alpharetta site in 2013, and before that he was the Head Age Group Coach at Tualatin Hills.
Resseguie was named the ASCA Age Group Coach of the Year in Oregon for the 2011 season, and coached two National Age Group Record-setting relays.
His biggest claim to fame at the senior level is being the junior coach of future Olympian, NCAA Champion, and U.S. National Champion Caitlin Leverenz in Arizona.
Resseguie follows in the footsteps of the man he’s replacing, Bergen, in that both were former Head Age Group coaches at the club before becoming the head coach.
According to a statement by the club, Resseguie was the club’s “top coach,” and among others they consulted with Bob Steele to develop a short-list of candidates.
“The Board is confident that we have succeeded in recruiting a highly regarded, experienced coach to join our excellent coaching staff, and one who will undoubtedly take THSC to never before seen heights,” said Jay Epperson, the president of the club’s Board of Directors.
