Minnesota State University-Moorhead has elected to not renew the contract of head swimming and diving coach Todd Peters. His name no longer appears on the MSU-Moorhead roster.
The MSU-Moorhead athletic department replied to SwimSwam’s request for comment with this statement:
“Todd Peters is no longer the swimming and diving coach at MSU-Moorhead. His contract was not renewed by the school.”
No further information is available as to why Peters won’t be coming back to coach the Dragons next season.
Peters was the only head coach in MSU-Moorhead’s swimming/diving program history, having led the team for 21 straight seasons. The program was established in 1997, the year he began coaching there. Prior to helping start the swimming/diving program at MSU-Moorhead, Peters was a high school coach from 1991-1997, coaching the Moorhead High School boys team and the Fargo South High School girls team.
Additionally, Peters was involved in club swimming, serving as coach for both the West Fargo Flyers and the Moorhead Marlins, before starting work at MSU-Moorhead.
MSU-Moorhead sponsors only a women’s team, which competes in NCAA’s Division II. The Dragons finished 5th at the 2018 NSIC Championships out of the 7 teams competing.
