Doug Humphrey was hired as the head coach of both the men's and women's swimming and diving programs on May 22, 2017.
Most recently, Humphrey served as the head women's swimming and diving coach at Northern Iowa for five seasons. His Panther squads showed steady progression in the Missouri Valley Conference, including posting back-to-back third-place finishes at the conference championship the past two seasons. The Nebraska native was named MVC Swimming Coach of the Year in 2016. During his tenure, UNI won 14 individual or relay conference titles and compiled 16 first-team all-MVC awards.
"We are thrilled to have been able to hire someone with the experience and track record of success that Doug has put together during his coaching career," SDSU Director of Athletics Justin Sell said. "More than anything, his commitment to fostering a family atmosphere in his programs and providing student-athletes with a tremendous overall collegiate experience stands out."
At SDSU, Humphrey took over the reins from Brad Erickson, who retired after leading both programs for 41 years. The Jackrabbit men's team has posted six consecutive top-three finishes at the Summit League Championships, while the women's squad has been league runner-up six of the last eight seasons.
Prior to coaching at UNI, Humphrey served as the assistant swimming coach at the University of Nebraska from 2000-12 under Olympic gold medalist Pablo Morales. Humphrey swam for the Huskers from 1991-96 and later served as a graduate assistant coach at his alma mater.
Aside from collegiate coaching, Humphrey was head coach of Club Huskers from 2003-12 and previously served as an age-group coach and head coach for the Nebraska Aquatics club team.
