“I am incredibly excited and honored to be named Interim Head Coach at Stevens,” said Thornton. “I’m looking forward to continuing the strong tradition of developing student-athletes both in and outside the pool. I would also like to thank Russell Rogers for the opportunity and for having the confidence in me to keep Stevens swimming moving in the right direction.
