North Baltimore Aquatic Club has hired 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Assistant Coach Paul Yetter as its head senior coach.
Yetter is a former head coach at T2 Aquatics in Florida and assistant coach at Auburn, and he has a strong legacy with NBAC, including leading the club to USA Swimming Spring Championship titles in 2006 and 2007 and coaching Katie Hoff to two world records and 18 American records.
Yetter was even a swimmer with North Baltimore in his youth, swimming for the team from 1990 to 1996 before competing collegiately at the University of Wisconsin.
“My goal was to find a top notch coach who would be committed to the program immediately and for the long term,” said NBAC head coach Tom Himes. “I believe we have found that coach with Paul Yetter and am excited for Paul to continue the NBAC legacy of providing a program of excellence.”
Yetter expressed his excitement at the prospect of coming back to Baltimore and NBAC.
“My family and I are extremely excited to make the move back to Baltimore and rejoin the NBAC family…” he said. “I’m excited to meet our athletes and family members next month and get right to work.”
In the NBAC press release, USA Swimming national team director Frank Busch called Yetter a “natural fit.”
Yetter will start at the new position during the week of November 14th.
