A NOTE FROM SWIMMING STAFF:
Thank you for a great 2015 summer camp season. We enjoyed the opportunity to work with you during your stay on campus this summer. We hope to see you back in 2016.
MATT TALLMAN, HEAD MEN'S SWIMMING COACH
Matt Tallman enters his 13th season at Notre Dame and his seventh as associate head coach. Tallman spent his first five campaigns serving as assistant coach for the Fighting Irish before assuming his associate position in July 2006.
Tallman’s recruiting efforts have produced some of the top classes in the history of the program - including the 14th-best incoming class in 2009-10, 12th-best in 2010-11 and 25th-best in 2011-12, which in turn has made Notre Dame a factor on the national scene.
The efforts of Tallman have also paid dividends in the pool, as the Irish have broken 128 University records over the last 13 years. Tallman was named the 2013 College Swimming.com Rising Assistant Coach of the Year after being named an honorable mention finalist in 2012. He has mentored 60 total swimmers who won BIG EAST individual and relay championships and all 14 individual Irish record holders, including two-time All-American Frank Dyer and Bill Bass, the second and third all-time Notre Dame men's swimming NCAA Championship qualifiers.
Originally from Lindenwold, N.J., Tallman has a number of Notre Dame connections. His father Dennis is a `73 graduate and his grandfather, Edgar F. Bailey, played football for the Irish in the 1940s.
MIKE LITZINGER, HEAD WOMEN'S SWIMMING COACH
Mike Litzinger, a veteran of 14 seasons as a head coach in men's and women's swimming and diving and a key member of the University of North Carolina men's and women's swimming staff the last eight years, was named head women's swimming and diving coach at the University of Notre Dame in April 2015.
Litzinger (pronounced LITZ-ing-er) brought with him to South Bend the experience of seven years as head coach of both the men's and women's programs at the University of Utah (2000-07) and seven more as head women's coach at St. Bonaventure University (1989-1996). He has been the associate head coach at North Carolina since 2011 after first joining the Tar Heel staff in 2007.
Litzinger's eight-year women's resume with the Tar Heels featured a 57-17 dual meet mark (.770), seven runner-up finishes in the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships and top 19 finishes in the NCAA Championships each of the last four seasons--including a best of 12th in 2012-13. During his tenure the Tar Heels produced 33 individual All-Americans and 13 relay units that claimed All-America status.
On the men's side during those same eight seasons beginning in 2007-08, the Tar Heels finished 56-15 (.788) in dual meets, ended up second three times and third four times in the ACC Championships and enjoyed top-15 finishes in the NCAA Championships three straight years from 2010-12, the first time since 1956-58 North Carolina had done that in men's swimming & diving. Litzinger assisted in producing 34 individual North Carolina men's All-Americans and 13 relay squads that garnered All-America honors.
The New York native and his wife Julie have two daughters--Gabrielle and Grace.
