He retired with 14 Big Ten Championships, a national runner-up in the 1995 NCAA Championships, a 175-77 all-time record making him the winningest coach in program history.

Coach Richardson is a great guy.  In addition to being an obviously successful coach with a great program, he was the head coach of the Wolverine Swim Camp, at least for the several summers my sons attended about 6-8 years ago.  He was a wonderful man and really great with the kids.

I wish him all the best in his retirement.

So, whose the new coach going to be?  I think we need to bring someone in that understands the tradition and culture of Michigan Womens Swimming program.  No outsiders!  Make the right hire DB.
