Jumping on board as the 2013-14 season was closing, Sean Dwyer, formerly of the Trent Swim Club and Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, became the assistant coach for Wright State's swimming & diving teams.

Dwyer was a swimmer at Trent Swim Club from ages 10 to 19, and after leaving to swim and run cross country/track at the University of Indianapolis, he returned, first for six years as an assistant, and for the last eight as the program’s head coach. During that time he also served as head coach for the Trent University Swim Team.

Some of the most famous swimmers out of Trent’s history include sprinter Matt Rose, a 2002 Commonwealth Games bronze medalist and 2004 Olympian as well as Jill Savage, a 2008 Olympian in triathlon.  More recently, the club produced Indiana University All-American Cynthia Pammett.

“I am extremely pleased to have Sean on our staff,” Oaks said.  “He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will be very useful to our athletes and to me. I am confident that Sean and his family are going to enrich the Wright State community to the fullest and certainly aid our program as we seek to develop two championship caliber teams.”

Dwyer is a fully certified NCCP Level three swim coach, Level two distance running coach, Level one triathlon coach and a certified ASCA Level four swim coach. During the summer of 2004, Sean was named head coach of the Canadian team competing at the Triathlon Long Course World Championships in Sweden.  He has received a number of coaching awards, including: 2002-2003 OUA Men's coach of the year award and 2008 CSCTA Domestic Excellence Award.
