The University of Sioux Falls announced on Monday that it has hired Jon Maccoll to lead its new women’s swimming program, which will begin competition in 2016.
Maccoll most recently served as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Nevada-Las Vegas of the Division I Mountain West conference. He served in the same capacity at Division II Queens University in Charlotte, N.C. from 2010-2013.
Maccoll, a 2007 graduate of Slippery Rock University, worked with the middle distance and distance swimmers at UNLV, which won the 2015 Western Athletic Conference men’s championship.
“I am honored to be chosen to lead the USF swimming program,” Maccoll said in a press release. “The school’s academic prestige, the city of Sioux Falls growth, and AD Snyder’s vision for USF athletics are all linked together in a partnership pact for success. I am excited to play my part in that success, while creating an environment where future student-athletes can achieve their goals in the classroom, in the pool, and someday the board room,” he said.
