Bauerle Announces Retirement from Swimming & Diving Program

Alan Flurry

Congratulations to Franklin College alumnus and Advisory Board member Jack Bauerle, who announced his retirement from leading UGA's prodigiously successful Swimming and Diving program after 50 years at the university as a student-athlete and coach.

Bauerle has served as the head coach of the women's swimming and diving team since 1979 and the men's team since 1983, matching former LSU gymnastics coach D-D Breaux for the longest tenure of any coach in Southeastern Conference history. He already became the longest-tenured in Georgia athletics history with his 35th season in 2013-14, passing legendary men's tennis coach Dan Magill for the honor.
