Utah adds Aly Tetzloff as an Assistant Coach

The University of Utah has added Aly Tetzloff as an assistant coach, the school announced this week.

Tetzloff joins the staff of Jonas Persson. The 14-time All-American at Auburn spent two seasons after retiring as a professional swimmer as an assistant coach at Florida Gulf Coast.

“I am so thankful for Jonas and the Utah staff for giving me this opportunity to join the Ute Family,” Tetzloff said in a university statement. “From the moment I flew into Salt Lake City, I was in awe of the surrounding natural beauty and blown away by the athletic facilities on campus. I can’t wait to get to know the team and help cultivate a positive student-athlete environment. Go Utes!”

Tetzloff helped the Eagles to a 5-0 record in the ASUN last year, winning nine medals at the conference championship meet.

Tetzloff was a 14-time All-American across four individual events and three freestyle relays at Auburn. She was a three-time SEC Champion, including in the 100 back as a senior in 2019. She swam at Olympic Trials in 2016 and 2021. The native of Crown Point, Indiana, swam professionally in all three seasons of the International Swimming League.

“From the first phone call with Aly, I was very impressed,” Persson said. “And when me and my staff spent time with her on campus, it confirmed she was the right person for the job. She’s got a tremendous background as a swimmer, being able to compete at the highest level and having worked with some great coaches along the way. She’s done a very nice job working with Coach Rollins, whom I highly respect, the last two years at Florida Golf Coast University. Aly is the right fit for our program and I can’t wait to get started. We had some great candidates for the job, which I’m very grateful for, and I’m so happy for our staff and team members that we got our No. 1 choice.”
