Assistant coach Ryan McIntire joined the swimming and diving staff in 2017. His primary responsibility will be working with divers.
McIntire's appointment comes after a standout four-year career with the Owls as a student-athlete. He was named the Coastal Collegiate Sports Association Male Diver of the Year and competed in the NCAA Zone B Diving Championships during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons. As a senior, McIntire earned the CCSA Most Outstanding Male Diver of the Championship title after claiming the 1-meter (398.35) and 3-meter events (414.55), breaking his own school records during both.
The Neptune Beach, Fla. native gained coaching experience working with athletes at Boca Raton High School. He guided a diver to the State Championship for the first time in school history and the school has had divers represented in the State Championship every year since, reaching as high as fourth place. As a coach, he has mentored athletes that have competed at the USA Diving National Championships and AAU Diving National Championships, where multiple divers have advanced to the finals.
