HONOLULU- An exciting season lies ahead for the University of Hawai’i swim and dive program; head coach Michael Stephens announced four additions to his first-year staff on Wednesday afternoon.
With over two decades of coaching experience in the U.S. and Australia, Kevin Blum will join the University of Hawai’i coaching staff as the associate head coach. Named to the World University Games coaching staff in 2013 and Victorian Open Water Coach of the Year in 2015, Blum has helped coach several swimmers to the 2008, 2012, and 2016 USA Olympic Trials.
“Coach Blum has over 20 years of experience helping swimmers achieve on the club, college, national and international levels,” said Stephens. “He has had great success working with high caliber athletes in the U.S. and Australia, and I am excited for him to share his expertise with our student-athletes in Hawaii.”
