FIU women’s swimming and diving head coach Randy Horner announced the hiring of assistant coach Brien Moffitt on Wednesday afternoon.

Moffitt joins FIU after spending this past season at Florida State as a volunteer coach for the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams. During his time at FSU, he was responsible for data collection, metrics of workouts, facilitating filming and stroke analytics. As a part of Seminole head coach Neal Studd’s staff, Moffitt helped guide FSU to eight ACC podium finishes, break three school records and make five relay A cuts. Additionally, Moffitt worked with eight world championship qualifiers on the ‘Noles rosters and helped post-graduate Olympic hopefuls train.

“I am excited to have Brien join our FIU Family,” Randy Horner said. “He exemplifies everything I was looking for in a leader to help us continue our program’s success and build to the next level. His emphasis on developing the person, as well as the athlete, is consistent with the ideals we hold dear with our program.”

Brien Moffitt previously worked as a graduate assistant at the University of West Florida, where he composed and facilitated in-water workouts for various training groups, led meet warm-ups for student-athletes and led in and out-of-water training activities. As a member of the UWF staff, Moffitt helped the squad break seven school records and eight freshman school records. He also helped guide 19 student-athletes to All-American awards, while 28 received All-Conference recognition.

Collegiately, Moffitt swam for Grand Valley State from 2013-17. He was elected team captain for his senior season in the pool.

Born and raised in Rochester Hills, Michigan, Brien Moffitt received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Grand Valley State University in 2017, while double majoring in finance and general management. He obtained a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of West Florida in 2019.
