TEMPE, Ariz. – Sun Devil Swimming head coach Bob Bowman announced the addition of former Sun Devil swimmer Herbie Behm to his coaching staff. Behm, who will serve as an assistant under Bowman, rounds out the ASU staff set to kick off the season in September.

“I am beyond grateful to have the opportunity to coach at my alma mater,” Behm said. “As an alumnus, I have been blown away by the improvements the team has seen since Coach Bowman’s arrival.”

Behm returns to Tempe after serving as the assistant sprints coach at the University of Utah for two seasons. During his tenure in Salt Lake, Behm led a group of more than 20 student-athletes in their daily training programs while assisting and working with each individual’s technique, training strategies and post race analysis. Under Behm’s tutelage, 20 student-athletes set school records in just two seasons.

At Utah, Behm also coached a 2018 Pac-12 Champion and an All-American in the 200 medley relay. One of his student-athletes also swam the fastest 50-yard backstroke in the nation in the 2017-18 season.
