BERKELEY – For the seventh time in his career and second consecutive year, California head coach David Durden has been named the NCAA Men’s Coach of the Year by the College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA).

The award comes two days after Durden led the Golden Bears to their eighth all-time national championship and sixth in his 16-year tenure as Cal’s head coach. The Bears also won team titles in 2011, ’12, ’14, ’19, ’21, and ’22 while finishing among the top two teams at 13 consecutive national meets dating back to 2010.

On Saturday, Cal secured its second consecutive national championship at the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center in Minneapolis, scoring 482 points and finishing ahead of runner-up Arizona State (430 points) and third-place Texas (384 points).

Additionally, the CSCAA also announced its 2022-23 All-Americans, including 15 Golden Bears (see below). All-Americans are selected on the basis of their finish at the NCAA Championships and team’s current membership with the CSCAA. Only student-athletes who competed in their championship finals are eligible for All-America Honors.
