UGA legend Jack Bauerle to retire as swimming coach

By Newsroom

Legendary UGA swimming and diving coach Jack Bauerle is retiring after 43 years at coach. He's the longest serving coach in the university's history. He was a guest on the Friday, June 24 edition of WDUN's "Newsroom."

In this time at Georgia, Bauerle has produced seven NCAA and 12 SEC crowns with the Lady Bulldogs, with 62 different men and women team members winning 175 individual national championships.

In his tenure, 304 Georgia student-athletes have accumulated 2,116 All-America citations, while Bauerle himself has been chosen as the SEC Coach of the Year 18 times (16 with the women, two with the men) and the NCAA Women’s Coach of the Year on seven occasions.

Bauerle has led the Lady Bulldogs to 342 dual-meet victories. Counting his wins as the Bulldogs’ men’s coach, Bauerle has an overall record of 595-139-4. That figure ranks first among active NCAA coaches, first all-time in the SEC, and second on the all-time list.

He also made history by leading the Lady Bulldogs to an NCAA-record 103 straight dual wins at home from Nov. 8, 1995, through Jan. 5, 2017.
 
In 2008, Bauerle was chosen as the United States' women's team coach for the Olympics, leading the American women to 14 medals, the most of any nation.
 
Under Bauerle’s leadership, Georgia has produced 87 Olympians representing 20 different nations, earning 38 medals in the process. Georgia swimmers have earned 15 Gold Medals.
