SAN DIEGO – Jaclyn Rosen was named the assistant coach of San Diego women’s swimming and diving, as announced recently by head coach Mike Keeler.
Rosen brings a wealth of experience to the Toreros after previous coaching stops at Bowling Green, Cincinnati and San Jose State.
“I am very excited to be here at the University of San Diego,” said Rosen. “Not only is San Diego beautiful but I am thrilled to work with the enthusiastic, connoiseur of swimming and diving, Mike Keeler. I can’t wait to be on the pool deck with the team and start competing."
“I wanted to thank Mike for allowing me to be a part of his team and I am looking forward to helping in any and all ways I can.”
Rosen joins USD from Bowling Green where she spent the past two seasons. During her time at BGSU she monitored academic progress, which yielded the second-highest team GPA in the nation during the 2015-16 season for D-I swimming and diving (fall – 3.625 and spring – 3.72).
Bowling Green had a NCAA qualifier, three NCAA Academic All-Americans, two MAC Champions (400 IM and 200 breast stroke), and broke a combined 13 school records during Rosen’s tenure.
During her time with the Cincinnati, Rosen was responsible for all travel and recruiting trips, as well as hosting recruiting weekends for the Bearcats.
In the pool, Cincinnati student-athletes excelled under Rosen, who oversaw the distance program. During 2014-15, two men’s swimmers won conference championships (one in the mile) – the first time that had happened since 2010. Additionally, for the first time in 10 seasons, a Cincinnati swimmer was an NCAA qualifier and All-American.
Under Rosen, seven school records and three conference records fell, while 10 swims qualified under the NCAA ‘B’ standard.
Rosen started her coaching career with three seasons at San Jose State, spending three seasons with the Spartans. The Spartans compiled a 24-5 dual meet record while she was on staff, including two Western Athletic Conference (WAC) team championships and eight individual conference champions.
During her time at SJSU, Rosen also served as the head swim coach of the Highlands Dolphins Aquatic Club for two-and-a-half years, directing a program of nearly 125 swimmers.
A native of San Francisco, California, Rosen earned her master’s of kinesiology in sport studies during her time on the coaching staff at San Jose State.
She also earned Outstanding Graduate Project Award for her masters’ thesis titled, “What Division I Swim Coaches Look for in the Recruiting Process.” Her research focused on the talent identification process, examining the behavioral and linguistic techniques used by the coaches as they look to identify the fit between a prospective student-athlete and a team.
Rosen swam collegiately at the Hawai’i serving as a captain during both her junior and senior seasons.
During her time as a student-athlete at Hawaii, the Rainbow Wahine captured the WAC team title during her senior season. Rosen was also honored with the team’s Most Inspirational Award and earned the Coach’s Award in 2003-04.
Rosen received a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology with an emphasis in exercise science, lifestyle management and leisure activity from Hawai’i in 2006.
