Tyson Hurst returns for his second year with the UConn swimming and diving teams after a successful 2010-2011 season.

"I am excited to be here for a second year and feel that the progress we made last year as a staff will only grow exponentially with this new class coming in," says Hurst.

He primarily worked with the sprinters, flyers and breaststrokers. Hurst also played a huge role working with athletes on stroke efficiency utilizing underwater videotaping and implementing progressive power-training regimens.

His coaching career started off in 2006 coaching all levels of the Cascade Aquatic Swim Club in Redmond, Ore., and served as assistant at Redmond High School for three years. His collegiate career began at Indiana University as a volunteer assistant and he was part of two women's Big Ten titles. Hurst was also involved with the Campus Recreational Sports administration at IU.

Tyson received an undergraduate degree in education and a master's in teaching from Oregon State.
