Head Coach of 10 Years Paul Kueterman Resigns from Division I Siena College

Head swimming and diving coach Paul Kueterman resigned from his post after his 10th season with Divison I Siena College, which only has a women’s team, athletic director John D’Argenio announced in early March.

“We thank Paul for his commitment to Siena College and its swimming and diving program over the past 10 years,” said D’Argenio. “With a growing, young family Paul made a decision that would allow him to spend more time with them.”

Kueterman is the winningest coach in program history with 59 dual meet wins and five top-five finishes at the MAAC Championships during his tenure, according to the announcement. Siena won the 2015 Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship, and Kueterman was named Women’s Coach of the Meet.

“I am very thankful for my time at Siena,” Kueterman said. “I was lucky to be able to interact and coach with terrific people that all have impacted my life in a variety of ways.”

Kueterman coached eight swimmers to individual ECAC titles, and two to individual MAAC titles. Last season, freshman Lydia Delano earned MAAC Rookie Diver of the Meet, the program’s first major MAAC Championships award. The Saints also set new program records in both the 800 free relay and 100 butterfly.

Siena’s head coach position is one of five currently open during the 2020 NCAA offseason.
