After a season as the interim head coach, Tyrrell was recently given the official title of head coach. He talks about being the “Ulen-Brooks Endowed Coach for Harvard Men’s Swimming” and the advantages of having an endowment for his job. Though it would seem that being an Ivy League student-athlete has its perks, Tyrrell says he has to often keep his athletes focused on the present moment, to keep their thoughts on enjoying the process of academics and athletics, and to feel the privilege of being a Harvard student. Tyrrell also talks about the rivalry with Yale and Princeton and how it often brings out the best in all three schools.
