Nov. 19, 2002

USC head assistant swimming coach Larry Liebowitz has been named head coach for the United States men's swim team that will compete at the 2003 World University Games in Daegu, Korea, next August, United States Swimming announced on Tuesday (Nov. 19).

This is the first head coaching assignment on the national level for Liebowitz, who is in his eighth year on the Trojan staff.

'I'm looking forward to the opportunity to represent the United States,' Liebowitz said. 'It's always been a dream of mine to be a head coach of a national team, so I guess you could say it's a dream come true.'

Liebowitz most recently served as an assistant coach for the U.S. men's team at the 1999 Pan American Games and was as an assistant coach at the 1997 World University Games.

'Larry has long been recognized as one of the country's best coaches,' USC head coach Mark Schubert said. 'He has a wealth of experience coaching internationally for the U.S. I think it's a very wise decision to select him as head coach. Not only does he deserve it, but he will do a terrific job.'

Assistant coaches for the 2003 World University Games have not been announced yet.
