Andrew Hancock was hired as the UWF women’s swimming and diving team’s inaugural head coach in 2012. Hancock, a former 10-time champion as a student-athlete in the Horizon League, assumes the position in his first collegiate head coaching role. The women’s and swimming and diving program will begin competition in the 2013-14 season.
Hancock spent the last five years as the assistant coach for the men’s and women’s swimming and diving program at his alma mater, Cleveland State University. In 2011 Hancock was tabbed by CollegeSwimming.com as one of the top swimming and diving assistant coaches in the country as an honorable mention selection for the Assistant Coach of the Year award.
During the 2011-12 season at CSU, Hancock helped lead both the men’s and women’s teams to runner-up finishes in the Horizon League Swimming and Diving Championships. In his five-year term he helped the men’s team earn at least 10 wins each year and the women’s team to 15 wins in the 2010-11 season. In his time at Cleveland State, the women’s swimmers he recruited broke every school record in the program’s history.
Before coaching at CSU Hancock competed as a student-athlete for the Vikings for four seasons on the men’s swimming and diving team. In that time he was named Horizon League Swimmer of the Year in 2002 and won six individual titles, including the 1,650-yard freestyle in each of his final three seasons.
Hancock also was the first Viking to break the four minute mark in the 400-yard individual medley. He also helped the team to four consecutive conference titles as a member of the 800-yard freestyle relay team.
Hancock graduated from CSU in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in Finance. He is married to former Viking swimmer Rebecca Guerra, and they have one son, Oliver.
