University of Toledo Hires Jonas Persson as New Head Coach

TOLEDO, OH – The University of Toledo has hired former University of Utah Head Sprint Coach Jonas Persson as its head women’s swimming and diving coach, UT Vice-President and Athletic Director Mike O’Brien announced on Friday.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jonas Persson as the head women’s swimming and diving coach at the University of Toledo,” O’Brien said. “Jonas has an outstanding background in the highest levels of swimming, both internationally and collegiately. I am excited to have someone with his experience and passion for the sport join the Rocket family.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to join the Toledo program,” said Persson. “Toledo has great potential and the athletic department is taking the right steps in order to be more competitive, both athletically and academically. While visiting campus, I knew right away that Toledo is a place where I can make a great impact. I’m looking forward to meeting the team and start recruiting right away. I want to express my appreciation to Mike O’Brien and (senior associate athletic director) Kelly Andrews for trusting me with this great opportunity.”

Persson worked specifically with the sprinters at Utah and in the past five years 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.
