Tracy Slusser Steps Down As Stanford Associate Head Coach

Stanford Associate Head Coach Tracy Slusser has stepped down from her role with the Cardinal.

Slusser has been a part of the Stanford program since 2012 and was promoted to associated head coach two years later.

“It has been an absolute honor to lead this program for the past 11 seasons alongside Greg Meehan,” said Slusser. “I am humbled and proud of what we have accomplished together with so many amazing young women over the years. The friendships and memories will last far beyond my time on the pool deck. The Stanford Athletics community has been unwavering in showing their support for the program, as well as for me and my family over the years. We will continue to cheer on the Card from the stands.”


Slusser has been one of the top assistant and then associate coaches in the country, teaming with Greg Meehan to put together one of the top coaching duos in NCAA history.

“Tracy has been an amazing coach, mentor, colleague and friend for the last 11 years,” said Meehan, Stanford’s Paul A. Violich Director of Women’s Swimming. “Tracy poured her heart and soul into the Stanford Women’s Swimming and Diving program and embodied the tenets of Stanford Athletics: lead with courage; embrace scholar athleticism; work cohesively; and pursue and revere excellence. Tracy’s passion to make a difference in the lives of these young women is unmatched and they are all the better for it. While we will certainly miss her, we are excited for Tracy, Adam, Ivy and Jade as she moves into this next phase of her life. Thank you, Tracy!”

Stanford won three consecutive NCAA championships behind the duo, and became a perennial title contender.

Olympians during her tenure include Maya DiRado, Lia Neal, Katie Ledecky, Simone Manuel, Taylor Ruck, Regan Smith, Torri Huske and Claire Curzan.

Before joining the Cardinal, Slusser was an assistant coach at Arizona and Texas A&M. She also was the U.S. coach at the 2019 World University Games.
