Tim Welsh and Wally Morton

I have had the great pleasure of meeting many incredible swimming coaches who have retired from collegiate coaching, but with the final dual meet of their careers now 48 hours past and their final conference and NCAA championships looming in the coming weeks, I’d like to take a moment to thank Wally Morton and Tim Welsh for being true ambassadors for our profession.  You can read all about their accomplishments as gauged by wins, conference championships, etc in their respective bios, which are linked at the bottom, but what stands out to me is what they have meant to their athletes, their institutions and their professions.

 As Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick said on Saturday "There is no better fit between a coach and a university than Tim Welsh and the University of Notre Dame." He also referenced Coach Welsh's dedication to the values of the University of Notre Dame saying, "He has lived them, taught them and modeled them."  Not only has Coach Welsh dedicated himself to his athletes, he has served as a leader in our profession as a member of the CSCAA Board of Directors and as a past president of ASCA.  When there are tough issues to address, Tim Welsh provides a frame of reference that is utterly reliable.  As Josh Davis commented on the Swimming World article about Coach Welsh’s final dual meet “Coach Welsh is one of the great coaches in collegiate swimming but more importantly he is one of the great human beings in all of swimming. Thank you for your commitment to shaping young men with integrity and excellence!”

 As far as I can tell Wally Morton takes nothing for granted, he is thankful for his opportunity to coach at Cleveland State and spent a career as a servant to his athletes and the university.  Wally has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Cleveland State and not just for the swimming and diving program.  The Robert F. Busbey Charitable Foundation he established gives directly to Cleveland State, including tens of thousands of dollars annually to the CSU Radiance scholarship program that assists over 100 CSU undergraduates who are at risk for dropping out of school because of finances.  These scholarships enable students to stay in school and make progress towards their degrees uninterrupted.  This is on top of the hundreds of thousands of dollars he has raised for Viking Swimming and Diving scholarships, operation's budget and facility upgrades.  Wally has truly paid it forward and as Ohio State Women’s Coach and CSU alumni Bill Dorenkott stated “The true hallmarks of a leader are if they left things better than they found them and will they be missed. Simply put, Wally has made a difference in countless individuals lives. I will always be grateful for having Wally in my life."

Coach Morton and Coach Welsh are tremendous people.  As you see them on deck in the coming weeks, please take a moment to thank them for their service to their athletes, their institutions and our sport.
Thank you Coach Morton and Coach Welsh.
