Former Auburn swim coach Richard Quick will be inducted into the Tiger Trail, a prestigious collection of the University’s most outstanding coaches, athletes and administrators.
Quick was the head men’s and women’s coach at Auburn from 1978 to 1982 and again from 2007 until 2009, when he died of an inoperable brain tumor. His career accolades are extensive, including coaching the U.S. Olympic team for six Games – 1984, 1988, 1992, 2000 and 2004.
The Tiger Trail is a joint effort by the Auburn Athletic Department and the Auburn Chamber of Commerce. The induction ceremony will take place beginning at 5:00 PM Eastern Time on Friday night, with Quick and 5 others in the Class of 2014 joining the 114 current Tiger Trail members.
Quick is in some elite company in this class, which includes NFL running backs Ronnie Brown and Carnell Williams as well as former football player Cleve Wester, late-90s basketball star Doc Robinson and All-American soccer goalkeeper Megan Rivera.
