Temarie Tomley has joined the Georgia Tech coaching staff for the upcoming 2023-2024 season, the school announced Wednesday, August 23rd.
“We’re thrilled to be able to add Temarie to our coaching staff,” Head Coach Courtney Shealy Hart said. “She brings a tremendous amount of success from her time in the pool at Alabama and as a top-30 qualifier for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials, and from her time as a coach at George Washington where she helped lead them to back-to-back conference championships. I’m excited for the impact she’ll have on our entire team.”
“I am so excited and so grateful to Courtney for the opportunity to coach alongside a prestigious staff and a high-achieving group of student-athletes,” Tomley said. “I can’t wait to start helping build the Yellow Jackets to new heights.”
