Jeremy Kipp Resigns As USC Men’s And Women’s Swimming Head Coach

Mar 6, 2022

LOS ANGELES — Jeremy Kipp, head coach of the USC men's and women's swimming teams the past two seasons, announced today (March 6) that he is resigning.

"Due to the difficulty of these last few months, I have informed athletic director Mike Bohn that I believe it is best for me to separate from the program at this time," said Kipp.

"I'd like to thank Mike for giving me the opportunity to lead the Trojans during a most unprecedented time in the history of NCAA sports. I am proud of the staff that I assembled and what we were able to accomplish in such a short time. Both the men's and women's programs are again competing at the highest level while achieving academic success in the classroom. I look forward to watching the Trojans' continued success at the Pac-12 and NCAA Championships for years to come. I am forever grateful for the support I've received from many of the athletes I've coached in my career.

Said Bohn: "We appreciate Jeremy's nearly 10 years of service to our swim programs. We wish him well in his future endeavors.

Kipp came to USC after two seasons (2019-20) as the director of men's and women's swimming at Northwestern. Before that, he was the women's swimming and diving head coach at Boise State for three years (2016-18). He spent eight seasons (2008-15) as an assistant at USC and eight years (2000-07) as an assistant at UC Santa Barbara.

Both the USC men's and women's teams are currently ranked No. 11 nationally and have 5-2 dual records as they head into the NCAA Championships in Atlanta (March 16-19 for the women and March 23-26 for the men).  The Women of Troy finished third at the recent 2022 Pac-12 Championships, while the men were fourth at the just-concluded Pac-12 meet.

Associate head coach Lea Maurer will lead both programs until Kipp's replacement is hired.
