The University of New Mexico Director of Athletics Eddie Nuñez has selected Keegan Ingelido as the next head coach of the Lobo swimming and diving program. She replaces Dorsey Tierney-Walker, who left this summer to accept a position on the staff at Ohio State.
“We are excited to add a veteran coach like Keegan to our department to continue the positive momentum in our swimming and diving program,” Nuñez said. “What set Keegan apart during the search process was not only her coaching experience, but also her success as a collegiate athlete as a three-time national champion and as an Olympic qualifier. Keegan will be a great leader and resource for our student-athletes.”
With the selection, Ingelido becomes the fifth head coach in UNM program history.
Ingelido comes to Albuquerque after coaching at Texas Christian University for a 10-year period from 2007 to 2017, becoming the first ever associate head coach in program history after serving eight years as an assistant coach. Most recently, she was the assistant swim coach with the Ft. Worth Area Swim Team as well as supervisor of the Disadvantaged Youth Swim Program.
