Oakland University Hires Molly Hebzynski as Assistant Coach

Oakland University on Monday announced the hiring of Molly Hebzynski as an assistant coach.

Hebzynski joins the staff of head coach Mitch Alters after serving as a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Northern Colorado.

“The addition of Molly to our staff is a huge gain for our team, department, and campus. Her strong ability to communicate and passion for the sport was evident in the hiring process,” Alters in a university statement. “I look forward to watching her work with our student-athletes and build upon our success here at OU.”

Hebzynski swam at St. Cloud State in Minnesota, where she graduated 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in mass communication advertising. The native of Maple Grove, Minn., worked for two years at her alma mater in marketing before returning to coach full-time at Minnetonka Swim Club. She volunteered at UNC while receiving her master’s degree in Sport and Exercise Science, Social Psychology of Sport and Physical Activity.

UNC finished third at the WAC Championships last year, attaining 11 NCAA qualifying standards.

“I am beyond excited to be joining the staff at Oakland University,” Hebzynski said. “The program has a rich history of tradition and excellence. After my initial call with Head Coach Mitch Alters, I knew it was the place for me. There is so much community and pride in being a Golden Grizzly and I’m honored to be a part of it. I’m looking forward to working with the fantastic student-athletes, staff, and administration.”

Atlers was hired in April to take over the Golden Grizzlies. Oakland is the reigning Horizon League champion in both the men’s and women’s competitions.
