Arizona athletic director Dave Heeke has made his first hire.
The Wildcats named Augie Busch as their new head coach for men’s and women’s swimming and diving, the school announced on Saturday.
Busch was the head coach the past four seasons at Virginia and was an assistant under his father Frank Busch at Arizona from 2003-2011.
Augie succeeds Rick DeMont, who announced his retirement in May after serving as Arizona’s head coach the past four seasons.
In eight seasons under Frank Busch, Arizona’s men and women each won team titles in 2008 and combined for 15 top-15 finishes (in 16 attempts) at the NCAA Championships.
The Wildcats are aiming for similar success by staying in the family with this hire.
