Tribe Swimming and Diving Announces Hiring of Assistant Coach Fernando Rodriguez

WILLIAMSBURG - William and Mary Director of Swimming and Diving Matt Crispino ’02 announced the hiring of Fernando Rodriguez as assistant coach on Monday. Rodriguez will be the recruiting coordinator and will also handle the responsibilities of the stroke and IM groups.

“I am thrilled that Fernando has chosen to join the Tribe swimming and diving staff. Fernando is a proven winner, and has surrounded himself with some of the best coaches our sport has to offer,” Crispino said. “I have no doubt that his experience at Kenyon, Wabash, and Athens Bulldogs will serve our program well. When you speak with Fernando, it’s easy to see that he not only knows the sport, but he is extremely passionate about it. He understands the concept of the student-athlete, and he understands what it takes to win – and that’s exactly what we plan to do with Fernando on board.”

Rodriguez comes to the College with six years of coaching experience, most recently as a an assistant senior coach and head master’s coach with the Athens Bulldogs Swim Club in Athens, Georgia. He was also an assistant coach at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana during the 2004-05 season.

Rodriguez graduated from Kenyon College in 2004 with a degree in anthropology. He recently obtained his master’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Georgia. As a student-athlete at Kenyon, Rodriguez was a seven-time NCAA All-American and a four-time All-NCAC honoree. He was also part of four NCAA D-III national championship teams.
