Army head coach Mickey Wender announced today the hiring of Jack Leavitt as an assistant coach. Leavitt comes to West Point after spending the past three years as a volunteer assistant at Harvard.

"We are very excited to welcome Jack Leavitt to the Army swimming and diving program," Wender said. "Jack brings a wealth of coaching experience and enthusiasm to our program. His coaching strengths match the needs we have within our program and he balances our staff nicely."

"Jack understands high level academics and athletics and has valuable recruiting experience,” Wender added. “He has also embraced the mission and ideals of the Academy, and I have no doubt that he will hit the ground running."

Leavitt began his career at NYU, where he spent two years as an assistant for the women’s program. During his time there he helped coordinate recruiting efforts, training plans, team travel and a strength and conditioning program. Throughout his career he has helped coach several DIII All-Americans and was a member of the 2009 UAA Coaching Staff of the Year.

Leavitt replaces Bret Lungaard who went to the University of Tennessee back in May.
