Scoggin, who will coach Alison Gibson and Jordan Windle, was a member of the 1992 U.S. Olympic Diving team and on the 2000, 2008, and 2012 Olympic coaching staff.  Olympic coaches, John Proctor, Adam Soldati and John Wingfield, will join the coaching staff alongside first-time Olympic coaches, Jeff Bro, Dwight Dumais and Jianli You.
“This is a great coaching staff,” said USA Diving High Performance Director, Dan Laak, who will serve as the Team Leader, “We have a mix of great coaches with Olympic experience alongside some amazing coaches experiencing the thrill of the Games for the first time.
