A New Coach with a Fresh Philosophy Leads 201617 Toledo Womens Swimming Diving Program

A new era in Toledo women’s swimming and diving will emerge in 2016-17, as first-year head coach Jonas Persson aims to lead the Rockets back to the top of the Mid-American Conference.

“I am excited to create my own culture at Toledo,” said Persson. “We excel academically but the athletes haven’t really been provided with the tools to excel athletically. The culture that I construct will be sustainable in the future of UT swimming and diving.”

Persson inherits the UT program after spending the last five years as the head sprint coach at the University of Utah. At Utah, he helped student-athletes break every men’s team record and 17 women’s team records, as well as helping them set 55 top-10 all-time performances. He has coached seven swimmers to NCAA Championship appearances and 11 swimmers who ranked in the top 50 nationally.

Persson is excited to be at UT and have the opportunity to guide the Midnight Blue & Gold. He has seen progress in his first pre-season, but he knows this year will be a learning process for everyone. Taking the reins of a new program late in the game is a challenging task. Persson’s primary focus has been on his relationship with his student-athletes.
