Paul Kueterman has resigned as the head coach of Siena College’s women’s swimming and diving team, the school announced Tuesday.

Kueterman had been in charge for 10 seasons and was the winningest coach in program history, compiling 59 dual-meet wins and five top-five finishes at the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships.

“I am very thankful for my time at Siena,” Kueterman said in a college statement. “I was lucky to be able to interact and coach with terrific people that all have impacted my life in a variety of ways.”

Kueterman was hired in 2010 and expanded the Saints’ program to include a revamped diving squad and a recruiting reach to the West Coast. The Saints’ best MAAC Championships placement came in his first season, 2011. They finished no better than seventh the last four seasons, including eighth in 2019 and 2020.

Kueterman led Siena to the 2015 Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference championship, earning the Coach of the Meet award. He coached eight ECAC and two MAAC individual champs as well as an NCAA regional qualifier (diver Haley Beers in 2015) and the 2020 MAAC Rookie Diver of the Meet (Lydia Delano). The Saints have earned College Swimming and Diving Coaches’ Association Scholar All-American honors for 15 consecutive semesters. Kueterman has mentored 109 MAAC All-Academic Team honorees.

“We thank Paul for his commitment to Siena College and its swimming and diving program over the past 10 years,” Siena Director of Athletics John D’Argenio. “With a growing, young family Paul made a decision that would allow him to spend more time with them.”

Paul Kueterman was the interim coach at Vassar College in 2009-10 after a season as an assistant. A swimmer at Division III Millikin University, Kueterman was an assistant at the College of Wooster and the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse around three seasons as the head coach of his alma mater from 2004-07.
