University of Minnesota Director of Athletics Joel Maturi announce today the promotion of Kelly Kremer as the new men's and women's swimming and diving coach of the Gophers. Kremer is a 13-year veteran of the Minnesota staff.
"I'm very excited about the direction that this decision will take our Minnesota swimming and diving program, " said Kremer. "Ultimately, this will give our program a common focus and I truly believe this is best for our student-athletes and their swimming or diving experience here at Minnesota."
The combining of the Gopher swimming and diving programs comes after successful campaigns for both the men and the women during the past season, including the Gopher women's ninth-place finish at the 2011 NCAA Championships. Kremer also guided the Gopher men to a 15th place in the national meet, extending the streak to 19 seasons with Minnesota placing in the top 15 at the national event.
