Collins To Retire After 37 Seasons At SMU

DALLAS (SMU) – Head Women’s Swimming Coach Steve Collins today announced his retirement after 37 years at the helm of the SMU program.

In his 37 seasons, Collins was named the NCAA Coach of the Year twice and earned conference coach of the year on 11 occasions. He led the Mustangs to 17 conference championships and 35 trips to the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships. During his tenure, SMU had 15 top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships, nine of those in the top five.

“SMU Swimming and Diving owes so much to Steve Collins,” said Director of Athletics Rick Hart. “He has established a championship tradition and culture here on the Hilltop and has shaped the lives of hundreds of student-athletes. The Robson & Lindley Aquatics Center andBarr-McMillion Natatorium and Holt Hickman Outdoor Pool would not exist if not for Steve’s hard work and love for SMU Swimming and Diving. We are so grateful for his many contributions and wish him the best.”
