Tennessee swimming and diving coach Matt Kredich has been selected to lead the U.S. women's swimming team at the 2013 World University Games, USA Swimming announced Thursday.
The World University Games will be held July 7-16, 2013, in Kazan, Russia.
"I feel very honored to be asked to serve on this staff," Kredich said through a UT release. "Team USA is known worldwide as a leader in swimming. We have an outstanding record of success internationally, and so I'm very excited to be in a position to help build on this tradition."
He will be assisted at the World University Games by Kevin Blum (Coronado-Navy Swim Association), Carol Capitani (Texas, women's head coach) and Paul Stafford (Terrapins Swim Team).
Kredich is in his eighth season at Tennessee and first with the newly combined men's and women's swimming and diving program. He led the Lady Vols to a record season in 2011-12 as the team finished second at the SEC championships and seventh a month later at the NCAA meet.
UT senior Kelsey Floyd, a standout in the butterfly, qualified for the team after her performances at the USA Olympic Swimming Trials and the U.S. Open Swimming Championships.
