Mike Kotch Mike Kotch Head Coach 781-736-2589

On July 11, 2011, Mike Kotch succeeded Jim Zotz as head coach of the Brandeis men's and women's swimming and diving teams, coming to Brandeis from nearby Regis College, where he served as head coach of swimming and diving since 2008. Under Kotch's leadership, the Brandeis program was reinstated for the 2012-13 season, after mechanical problems with the Linsey Pool had forced the teams' suspension for two years.

In two seasons, Kotch has begun to build one of the strongest teams in the Northeast. Under his leadership, the men's and women's teams have each set three new school records. In one of the top swimming conferences in the country, the Judges have had several top-eight UAA finishes, as well as three NCAA 'B' Cuts. The women's team has been named Collegiate Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-Americans each of the past three semesters, while the men have earned it each of the last two. The award is given to teams that earn at least a 3.0 GPA in the classroom.

Kotch developed 19 school-record holders and built the Regis men's program up from two swimmers in three years as head coach of the Pride. Kotch was Regis's staff liaison to their Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and served on the College's Judicial Board. He also served as treasurer for the New England Intercollegiate Swimming and Diving Association (NEISDA). 

Kotch holds two degrees from Bentley, receiving his B.S. in Accountancy in 1998 and his M.B.A. in 2004. He served as the Falcons' assistant coach from 2002 to 2008, leading recruiting efforts, including two Division II All-Americans, and helping the team win 11 NEISDA championships between the men's and women's squads.
