Chase Bloch, an integral part of the USC swimming program for the past decade who completed his sixth year as a Trojan men’s and women’s assistant swimming coach this past season, is returning in the same capacity for the 2020-21 season, first-year head coach Jeremy Kipp announced today.

Bloch, a 2014 co-captain and an All-American, was a four-year swimmer during Kipp’s first tenure at USC.

“Being able to retain Chase feels like a circle being completed for me as a coach,” Kipp said. “I recruited Chase to USC as a young prep swimmer in Southern California and got to work with him as a student-athlete, ultimately watching him become a leader and a Trojan captain.

“After leaving USC, I have watched Chase become one of the fiercest and best recruiters in the country. He has gained the admiration of his peers across around the nation and certainly the respect of the student-athletes on our team. I’m looking forward to coaching and collaborating with Chase once again.”

Since joining the staff, Bloch has helped lead the men’s squad to a Pac-12 title in 2015, the women’s team to a conference title in 2016 and to a combined seven top 10 finishes at the NCAA Championships.

During his time on USC’s staff, Trojan women have combined for 46 All-American honors while the men have totaled 36 while collecting eight NCAA individual and relay titles.

Chase Bloch, who graduated in 2014 with a degree in communications, has also guided Trojan swimmers on the international scene, coaching All-American Dylan Carter at the 2015 World Championships and at the 2018 Commonwealth Games as well as coaching All-American Robert Glinta at the 2017 European Championships.
