N.C. Stater Dives in to Coach Swimming

Matt Riley

Todd DeSorbo is UVA’s new swimming and diving coach, the University announced in August. He’s the former associate head coach at North Carolina State University.

DeSorbo replaces Augie Busch, who departed to coach at his alma mater, the University of Arizona, in July. Busch had replaced legendary coach Mark Bernardino (Com ’74, Educ ’78) in 2013.

DeSorbo was an assistant coach for five years at his alma mater, U.N.C. Wilmington, before coaching the past six years at N.C. State. This season, both N.C. State programs produced their highest finishes at the NCAA Championships. The men placed fourth; the women finished seventh.

In four seasons under Busch, the Virginia women won three ACC Championships and had two fifth-place finishes at the NCAA Championships, which were the best showings in program history.
