Jeremy Kipp Hired as Boise State Swimming and Diving Coach

Boise--Boise State Athletic Director Curt Apsey today announced the hiring of Jeremy Kipp as the school's new swimming and diving coach.  Kipp, who has 16 years of experience, including the past eight at USC, takes over from Kristin Hill, who resigned after eight years at Boise State.

“We are very excited to welcome Jeremy into the Bronco Family as the next head coach of our swimming and diving program,” Apsey said. “Jeremy’s body of work over the past 16 years has helped elevate the swim programs at both USC and UC Santa Barbara to great heights. We look forward to his leadership in continuing to build upon the winning tradition of Boise State women’s swimming and diving.”

Kipp worked primarily with the Trojan sprinters, directed the recruting for the men's team and assisted with recruiting for the women's program.  

Hill helped launch the Bronco swimming and diving team in 2006, and within four seasons, built the team into conference champions.  Boise State captured championships in 2010 and 2011 in the Western Athletic Conference, then continued that tradition with conference titles in the Mountain West in 2012 and 2014.  The Bronco women, who placed second in the Mountain West last season, return six of the seven swimmers who captured individual titles at the Mountain West Championships.

“I am both excited and humbled that Curt Apsey and his staff have chosen me to lead the Boise State women’s swimming and diving program,” Kipp said. “It’s hard to believe that the program has had only nine years in existence, which speaks to the excellent support and culture ingrained in the Boise State athletic department. Obviously, Kristin Hill had a large part of that success and I aim at pushing the program forward on all levels from performance in the classroom, pool and civic engagement. My wife Suzy and sons Jonathan and Patrick are proud to join the Bronco family and looking forward to calling Boise our home.”

In his eight years at USC, Kipp helped the Trojan women to seven consecutive Top 10 finishes at the NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships.  USC is one of only four schools to achieve six straight Top Eight finishes, including third-place showings in 2011 and 2012.  The Trojan women won 12 individual national championships and 52 individual and 20 relay All-America honors during Kipp's tenure.

The USC men have scored five straight Top 10 finishes at the NCAA Championships, finishing fourth last season.   

Before securing the job at USC, Kipp spent eight seasons at UC Santa Barbara coaching the middle distance and stroke groups.  Over 20 of his Gaucho swimmers advanced to the Naitonal Championships, with one earning All-America honors.
