A month into the 2013-2014 NCAA season, Derick Roe has replaced Greg Werner as the head coach of the head coach of the Ohio University women’s swimming & diving team on an interim basis. Roe will fill that role for the rest of the season.
“We feel that we need to move the program in a different direction,” said Ohio University Athletics Director Jim Schaus. “We thank Greg for all of his commitment to the program and we wish him the very best in the future.”
Roe is in his second season with the program after two years at Colgate following his graduation from Eastern Michigan in 2010.
The termination of Werner’s tenure (the school gave no details about the nature of the changing-of-the-guard) comes as a surprise after 18 years as the program’s head coach. The Bobcats took 2nd, behind only in-state rivals Miami, at last year’s Mid-American Conference Championship meet.
