BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana University Water Polo has named Max Taylor as an assistant coach, joining the program immediately. Taylor joins the program after a four-year stint at Whittier College as an assistant coach for men’s and women’s water polo.

In his time at Whittier, he helped coach the Poets which include national championships on both sides (women, 2022 and men, 2019) as the men were also the 2019 SCIAC regular season championship along with a pair of runner-up finishes.

“I’m so thankful and appreciative of this opportunity to work with such an amazing women’s team” Taylor said. “What really drew me to Indiana was the top-notch facilities and resources for the athletes. Coach McInerney has built something really special here, and I can’t wait to start playing games and show everyone what we are made of.”

Taylor played at Long Beach Community College where he helped lead them to a State Runner-up finish in the 2014 season and a State Championship in 2015. Taylor earned second team All-SCC in 2014, first team All-SCC in 2015, second team All-State and second team All-American during his time at LBCC.

Taylor helped his team to a 3rd place finish in the SCIAC Tournament. Taylor earned the honors of second team All-SCIAC, and an Honorable Mention All-American. In 2017, Taylor was first team All-SCIAC and second team All-American. He graduated from the University of Redlands with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science.
