    Notre Dame head women's swimming and diving coach Carrie Nixon has completed her staff and announced the hiring of Joel White as an assistant coach. A former assistant at Utah and swimmer at Wisconsin-Milwaukee, White completes the coaching staff, along with diving coach Caiming Xie, in time for Nixon's first year leading the Irish program.

    "We are very happy to have Joel as a part of our coaching staff," Nixon says.

    "He brings a great attitude to the program, knows a lot about swimming and his coaching strengths and knowledge complement mine very well. I know he will do a great job with the team."

    Most recently, White was an assistant coach at the University of Utah, helping the Utes claim their first in-season conference title and send three swimmers to the national championship meet.

    A native of Austin, Texas, White has been highly active in the University of Texas swimming program, working the program's summer camp from 2000-2005. White also was the head swimming coach at Homestead High School in Mequon, Wis., from 2001-03, leading the team to nine All-America honors, five individual state championships and two relay state titles.

    "I am so excited to be here and work with a great team at a great school," White says.

    "I know we are going to be successful and enjoy ourselves along the way."

    White graduated from Wisconsin-Milwaukee in December of 2002 with a degree in mechanical engineering. He swam all four years at UWM and was a nine-time conference finalist and team co-captain. He specialized in the 400 individual medley, 500 freestyle and 200 backstroke during his collegiate career.

    White also added a master's degree from the University of Utah in exercise and sport science with an emphasis in psychosocial aspects of sport in May of 2005.

    The 2005-06 Notre Dame women's swimming and diving season begins on Friday, Oct. 7, with the Dennis Stark Relays in Rolf's Aquatic Center at 6:30 p.m.
