STANFORD, Calif. - Mike Stephens was named the Associate Head Coach of Stanford Men’s Swimming and Diving, the Goldman Family Director of Men’s Swimming and Diving Dan Schemmel announced on Wednesday.

“I’m extremely grateful and excited to have Mike joining us on The Farm,” said Schemmel. “His character, passion, and expertise will be tremendous assets to the growth and success of everyone in our program.”

Stephens joins Stanford after a successful two year stint as the head coach of both Hawai’i Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving teams. He was named the MPSF Women's Swimming Coach of the Year following his first season in 2022-23 after leading the Rainbow Wahine to an MPSF title.

Stephens also guided the UH men's swimming and diving program to a third-place MPSF finish in the same season.

Prior to his time at UH, Stephens led his Boston College teams to 171 school record-breaking performances, including 41 alone in his final year with the Eagles in 2022. His student-athletes also achieved 29 NCAA consideration times and zone diving scores during his five seasons as head coach.

Stephens, a native of Olney, Maryland, is a two-time graduate of Boston College, having earned his Bachelor of Science focusing on finance in 2012 and his Master of Business Administration with a focus in higher education leadership and developmental psychology in 2012.

While studying at Boston College, Stephens was a four-time letter winner and captained the team during his senior season. Upon graduation, he held the school record in the 200 Medley Relay and ranked in the top five all-time in the 100 and 200 Breaststroke.
