    AU hires new Swimming and Diving Coach!

    David Marsh and Coach Taylor met today on campus. Marsh is in town for Camp War Eagle for his daughter.

    Gideon Louw is the latest assistant coach addition. Gideon was a former sprinter at Auburn who is from South Africa. He has since coached at FSU and Minnesota. This is a great hire by Coach Taylor!

    His first press conference is available to watch on the Auburn website. It sounds like he plans on relying on international recruiting much like David Marsh did in several aspects. Our international recruiting has not been where it once was save the occasional Brazilian sprinter.

    Obviously we all wish him the best. He wasn't going g to be too keen being an assistant at Auburn anyway after getting passed up for the HC job. I'm anxious to see what Taylor does here.

    Not certain, but it probably had to do with Taylor showing he could help his team be competitive at the acc's and ncaa's meanwhile Lopez doesn't have much to show in the regard.

    I think we'll see recruiting improve especially for distance swimmers.

    He's a respected coach and several are complimenting this hire. He's an experienced distance coach which goes against what our program was know for (sprinting) but he's shown his results can give a team the chance to win at NCAA's

    Brett Hawke steps down as S&D Coach

    This is the only sport we're a blue blood in...up there with Michigan , Texas, Ohio State, etc. It's because of this that makes this hire important. If not Marsh, I would expect us to look at Durden at Cal. They announced they will be limiting roster spots on the swim team and he could make more money here which would also go a lot further than it does in Berkeley. His wife is an Auburn alum too I believe. Durden is a good coach known for his primary coaching in the fly club. He always came up with creative drills.

    I haven't heard too much. I know UCSD's end-of-season banquet was this weekend, so maybe we were waiting until now to approach Marsh. This hire is extremely important for the program, and I hope the AD is doing the due diligence to get it right.

    Marsh Possibly Returning to Auburn?

    Also to note, their coach, Eddie Reese, used to coach at Auburn and Richard Quick replaced him

    Men vs. Arkansas

    We came back and made it respectable. A fire needs to be lit, I agree. We cannot afford to shoot so poorly outside of Auburn Arena. Now we HAVE to beat USC at home to share the title. I hope the players remember this feeling as motivation for the post season.
