Andrew Grevers, who served as interim coach for the 2018-19 MU swimming and diving season, will now be the permanent coach, according to a release by the Missouri athletic department Friday afternoon.

Grevers is replacing Greg Rhodenbaugh, who was placed on administrative leave last fall while under a Title IX investigation. Rhodenbaugh will remain in the athletic department, but is being "reassigned from his coaching position," according to the release. 

"I am extremely excited to continue my coaching career with the University of Missouri and am honored that Jim Sterk has entrusted me to lead the Mizzou Swim and Dive family into our very promising future," Grevers said in a statement. "The powerful combination of Missouri's academics and athletics attracts some of the world's best swimmers and divers, and allows us to provide a student-athlete experience that is second to none."

Grevers previously served as assistant coach from 2007-2017 before being promoted to associate head coach in the 2017-18 season. He served as the interim coach in the 2018-19 season.

During the NCAA Championships, the Missouri men's swim team tied for 11th, and the women's team placed 22nd. Between both teams, 20 Tigers claimed All-America honors, including six Top 15 NCAA placements on the women's team and five on the men's team.
