Mike Stephens currently serves as the head coach of the varsity swimming and diving program. Mike swam for Boston College as an undergraduate and has served in a coaching role since July 2013 alongside head coach of 45 years, Tom Groden (who retired this past December). Prior to that, Mike spent some time as an assistant coach with the Rockville Montgomery Swim Club (Maryland), where he competed as a club swimmer. During the four years Mike has been coaching at BC, the program has seen some of its most successful seasons.
