Richard Quick Sits Down With Swimming World Radio at Women’s NCAA Division I Championships

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, March 9. NEW Auburn head coach Richard Quick took time out from an exciting second day of preliminary competition to let our listeners know his thoughts on several issues.

He talks about his excitement in coming back to The Plains to coach at Auburn. He also speaks about the staff at Auburn and more specifically about Dorsey Tierney-Walker.

We also asked him his thoughts about the ongoing controversy with the NCAA College vs. High School Athlete interpretation as well as his response to breaking news from The San Francisco Chronicle that Skip Kenney has stricken swimmers' names from the Stanford media guide due to internal team issues.

As for the Stanford media guide issue, Stanford's official responses are as follows:

Stanford Athletic Director Bob Bowlsby
"We have recently discovered the situation regarding the 2007 men's swimming media guide and the intentional omissions that were directed by Skip Kenney, our head men's swimming coach, and perpetuated by Bob Vazquez, the media relations representative who produced the media guide. Both are equally responsible for a tremendous mistake in judgement.

I find it unacceptable that anyone who earned such distinction be selectively excluded from our publication and we will immediately restore our records to accurately reflect the history of our men's swimming program.

We will follow up with Coach Kenney and take appropriate corrective and punitive steps after the NCAA Championship meet.

Skip Kenney
"I wish to apologize for a serious mistake in judgement on my part. To exclude these five student-athletes from our media guide was an error and it will be corrected immediately. I apologize for my actions in this matter."
