Kevin Norman joined the Yale swimming coaching staff in August of 2010.
Norman came to Yale from the University of the South, where he was an assistant coach, helping both the men’s and women’s teams to top-four finishes at the SCAC Championships. The Tigers finished the year with 14 All-Conference performances and an NCAA Division III All-American. In addition, Norman led the team’s strength and conditioning program and worked with all swimmers, particularly focusing on the distance group. In 2008-09, he was a volunteer assistant at Yale, while also serving as an assistant coach for the Omni Swim Club. In his season at Yale, Norman coached the Bulldogs at the ECAC Championships where they finished eighth with just 10 swimmers.
Norman is a 2006 graduate of North Carolina-Wilmington where he served as captain of the swimming team and helped the Seahawks to four consecutive Colonial Athletic Association championships. He earned the Seahawk Award as a senior for his leadership skills before spending another year in Wilmington as a strength and conditioning intern and student-assistant coach. Following graduation, he earned his M.S. in exercise science-human performance at Southern Connecticut in 2009.
Norman lives in Wallingford, Conn., with his wife, Kim, and son, Ryder.
