More than half of Team USA’s Olympic swimmers will have their college or club swim coach poolside at the Paris Games, as USA Swimming announced the full 2024 Olympic coaching staff following the conclusion of the U.S. Olympic Swimming TeamTrials.

Men’s head coach Anthony Nesty (University of Florida) and women’s head coach Todd Desorbo (University of Virginia) will be joined in Paris by assistants Carol Capitani (University of Texas), David Durden (University of California - Berkeley), Braden Holloway (North Caroline State University), Chris Lindauer (University of Notre Dame), Greg Meehan (Stanford University), and Chris Plumb (Carmel Swim Club).

Nesty and Desorbo both served as assistant coaches for Team USA at the Tokyo Olympics, taking over as head coaches ahead of the 2022 World Swimming Championships. This summer, Nesty will become the first Black head coach of the U.S swimming team at an Olympics.

In addition to being two of the most successful active coaches at the college level, both Nesty and Desorbo work year-round with several of Team USA’s biggest swimming stars.

Multi-time Olympic gold medalists Katie Ledecky, Caeleb Dressel and Bobby Finke train under Nesty’s guidance in Gainesville. Desorbo, meanwhile, coaches seven future, current and former Cavaliers that qualified for Paris, including Kate Douglass, Alex Walsh, Gretchen Walsh and Thomas Heilman.

Meehan and Durden, who led Team USA at the Tokyo Games as women’s head coach and men’s head coach, respectively, return for Paris as assistants. Meehan trains Torri Huske and Simone Manuel in Palo Alto, while Durden oversees a star-studded roster of Cal Golden Bears which includes Ryan Murphy, Jack Alexy and Hunter Armstrong.

Holloway, coach of Katharine Berkoff and Ryan Held in Raleigh, returns to the Team USA staff after serving as an assistant during the 2023 World Championships.

Paris will be the first major international meet with Team USA for Lindauer. The Fighting Irish coach only had one of his athletes qualify for the 2024 Games, but that athlete, Chris Guiliano, will be among the U.S.’s busiest swimmers. Guiliano qualified to swim in five events: the 50m, 100m and 200m freestyles along with the 4x100m and 4x200m freestyle relays.

Plumb is the only member of the staff not affiliated with an NCAA program. His Carmel Swim Club (Indiana) was the talk of the Trials, taking place in nearby Indianapolis. Three Carmel swimmers qualified for Paris, including siblings Aaron and Alex Shackell, along with Drew Kibler.

Capitani will be a familiar face to the seven Longhorn Aquatics swimmers on the U.S. team. However, the staff does not include Texas men’s head coach Bob Bowman

Bowman, the men’s head coach for Team USA at the 2016 Rio Olympics and longtime coach of Michael Phelps, will instead coach French phenom Leon Marchand and the host nation in Paris. Unlike the U.S., France permits coaches to work with athletes from other nations, meaning Bowman will still have the opportunity to work with American star Regan Smith and Hungarian medal contender Hubert Kos, among many others.
