The Brown University Athletics Department announced today that Chris Ip will not return as the head coach of the men’s swimming & diving program.

Ip recently completed his fifth season with the team, guiding the Bears to a sixth place finish at the 2019 Ivy League Championships. In his tenure at Brown, the program earned three CSCAA Scholar All-American team honors. Ip also served as an assistant coach for the Brown’s women’s team from 1983-84.

Brown’s Swimming and Diving team was suspended in March 2018 after an investigation found multiple violations of alcohol and hazing policies.The team was suspended through December 21, 2018. During that period, the team could participate in other activities, such as practices, but was barred from representing Brown in competition. The Brown men broke 11 school records this season.

A national search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
