Washington State University Director of Athletics Patrick Chun announced Friday that the university and swimming head coach Tom Jager have mutually agreed to part ways.

“We thank Tom, appreciate his years of service to Washington State University and wish him great success in his future endeavors” said Chun.

Jager, hired prior to the 2011-12 season, guided the Cougars for the past seven seasons, leading them to 32 dual victories while coaching 67 student-athletes to Pac-12 All-Academic honors.

A national search for WSU’s next head coach will begin immediately.
