BALTIMORE—Former UMBC swimming and diving standout Brad Green has been named assistant aquatics director and assistant coach for the Retrievers, head coach Chad Cradock announced today. He will also serve as the head age group coach for the Retriever Aquatic Club.
"We are very excited that Brad has joined us," Cradock said. "He has done a good job as a coach so far and he's going to add a lot to our program."
Green, who graduated from UMBC in 2004 with a degree in economics, spent the previous three years as head coach of the Ocean City High School swim squad and the senior age group coach of the Ocean City C-Cerpants in Ocean City, N.J.
