Brad Smith is in his first year as the Head Women's and Men's Swimming and Diving Coach.
Smith previously served as the Head Women's and Men's Swimming and Diving Coach at Binghamton for the past five years. He also spent two campaigns as the Head Coach at Western Colorado, and he was an assistant coach at Maine from 2009-12.
At Binghamton, Smith coached six America East/ECAC Champions while his teams set 39 freshmen, pool, school and conference records in his tenure. Both programs were consistently honored by the CSCAA for their success in the classroom.
During the past two years, the Bearcats men's program has finished runner-up at the America East Conference championship meet under Smith. At the most recent conference meet, Binghamton had 12 all-league selections - seven on the men's side and five on the women's side. Additionally, the program had four men's student-athletes named academic all-conference. The women's team posted a 7-1 dual record while the men's team finished 4-1 in dual contests in 2018-19.
In 2017-18, Smith guided the men's team to a runner-up finish at the America East Championships. The Bearcats recorded two first-place finishes and four second-place finishes at the championships. Ross Bernstein was named the America East Swimming & Diving Scholar-Athlete at the conclusion of the 2017-18 season. The men finished 3-3 in duals while the women recorded a 5-3 finish.
Binghamton's men's program was a member of the Eastern College Athletic Conference prior to joining the women in the America East. At its final appearance in the ECAC meet, the men placed fourth out of 23 schools. In 2015 and 2016, the Bearcats also finished in fourth place.
Smith was named the head women's coach at Western Colorado in 2012 and was given the responsibility of starting the program from scratch. The Mountaineers had not had a swimming and diving program since 1984. In his two years at the helm, Smith oversaw a squad that produced an NCAA qualifier, set 84 team and pool records and was named a Scholar All-American team in 2014. In addition, Western Colorado had an all-conference swimmer and three academic all-conference honorees during his tenure.
At Maine, Smith was the assistant coach when the Black Bear men's squad placed fourth at the 2011 America East Championships – their highest finish in a decade. During his final two years, Maine broke a total of 21 school records.
A 2007 graduate of Vermont, Smith was a four-year letterwinner for the Catamounts. The following two years, he was the Director of Women's Swimming Operations at Vermont and also was the men's club team coach.
