Carmel High School and Carmel Swim Club head coach Chris Plumb has been named as one of the assistant coaches to the United States Olympic team. Plumb has been the CEO and head coach of the club since 2006. He has also served as the Carmel High School head coach during that time; every single Greyhounds girls team that Plumb coached has won an IHSAA state championship, part of a national record 38 consecutive titles. Plumb has also coached the Carmel boys team to its current streak of 10 consecutive state championships. Led by men’s head coach Anthony Nesty (University of Florida) and women’s head coach Todd DeSorbo (University of Virginia), the other assistant coaches are Carol Capitani (University of Texas), David Durden (University of California – Berkeley), Braden Holloway (North Caroline State University), Chris Lindauer (University of Notre Dame) and Greg Meehan (Stanford University). “Choosing the assistant coaches, we looked to create an environment for competitive success, based on talent, trust, and team,” said Lindsay Mintenko, Managing Director of the National Team. “Anthony (Nesty) and I have been discussing potential assistant coach options with staff dynamics in mind for two years. We had such a great experience in Budapest at the 2022 World Aquatics Championships with staff and team performance – we were looking to emulate that again,” said DeSorbo. “The staff we have put together is a group of people we trust, and we are confident in their ability to coach a variety of athletes to success. They will provide a great day-to-day environment and energy for the team to thrive. We look forward to spending the next five weeks with this group of talented coaches and great people.” Release courtesy Richie Hall | Hamilton County Reporter
