Swimming Adds Assistant Coaches

The TCU swimming & diving program adds a trio of assistant coaches - John Funk, Caroline Maxvill and Adam Stoner - for the 2013-14 season.

After joining the program in 2013 as a graduate assistant, John Funk was promoted to assistant coach on Sept. 26, 2014.

"I'm very happy to have an opportunity like this and grateful to Coach Sybesma," Funk said. "I'm looking to help maintain the continuity of the program."

A three-time team MVP at Rider, Funk helped lead the Broncs to back-to-back Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) titles in 2012 and 2013. A three-time MAAC conference champion and record holder, he posted an NCAA B Cut 1:47.56 in the 200-yard individual medley at the 2012 MAAC Championships. Funk also swam a career-best 1:47.90 in the 200-yard backstroke at the 2012 MAAC Championships. A US Open Qualifier, Funk also competed collegiately in the 100-yard butterfly, the 400-yard individual medley and was part of an 800-yard free relay team that set a school record (6:40.21) at the 2012 ECAC Championships.

Funk attended Southeast Career and Technical Academy in Las Vegas, Nev. where he swam and played varsity soccer. As a high school swimmer, he captured the 200-yard backstroke title at the 2009 Nevada State Meet and won the 100-yard backstroke at the 2008 Nevada High School State Championship. He was also a USA Junior National Qualifier and USA Winter National Qualifier.
