You can never take the easy way - Eddie Reese Top Podcast

45 minutes

Since taking over the swimming program at The University of Texas in 1978, Eddie Reese has established a tradition of excellence in Austin and set the standard in collegiate swimming. The 2005 and 2006 ASCA Coach of the Year, an eight-time NCAA Coach of the Year and three-time United States Men's Olympic Team head coach, Reese has led Texas to nine NCAA team titles in his 30 seasons in Austin. After placing 21st at the NCAA Championships in his first season (1979) at Texas, Reese's teams have never finished lower than seventh at the national meet. His Texas team will enter the 2008-09 season with two incredible streaks to its credit: 29 consecutive top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championship and 29 consecutive conference titles. Along the way, Reese has developed 41 NCAA individual champions, 29 national champion relays, 192 All-Americans and 26 Olympians who have won 29 gold medals.
