Ryan Wochomurka Lays Out his Vision For Auburn Swimming

In the SwimSwam Podcast dive deeper into the sport you love with insider conversations about swimming. Hosted by Coleman HodgesGarrett McCaffrey, and Gold Medal Mel Stewart, SwimSwam welcomes both the biggest names in swimming that you already know, and rising stars that you need to get to know, as we break down the past, present, and future of aquatic sports.

We sat down with Ryan Wochomurka, the recently announced head coach for Auburn’s swim and dive program. Coach Wochomurka walks through how he views Auburn, his alma mater and somewhere he’s been familiar with since age 17, and what he sees as the path for the Tigers moving forward. He’s hoping to start announcing his staff by the end of this week as well as start meeting athletes and staff where they are now athletically, academically, and spiritually.

I understand downvotes because people #OnHere love to be contrarian, but I feel like there’s a lack of understanding and appreciation for what Garrett did with Flo Swimming and then Swimming World. Before Garrett, swim media/coverage was mediocre at best. In my opinion, there is no Swim Swam without what Garrett did in his media career.

I’m not a “Garrett Fanboy” and I don’t always agree with what he says/does, but his contributions to the sport are extremely underrated.

Totally agree with this. His Flo Swimming videos back in the day were really good. You could tell he (1) really knew swimming and (2) had trained to do broadcasting. And, before that, there was hardly any swimming media, especially video.

I really like his point of taking individual needs into account. Not every swimmer is the same! Excited to see what he does with this program.

Why did the article of the girl who committed to auburn just get taken down?

Because she committed to the collegiate club program, and we mistakenly believed she was committing to the varsity program.
