Episode Notes

David Marsh,  Head Coach of Team Elite Aquatics, the top professional swimming training group in the United States, joins host Lawrence Peryer to share his thoughts and insight on the New Normal. 

In 2016, Team Elite placed more athletes on the U.S. Olympic team than any other program. If Team Elite were a country, they would have placed 3rd in the 2016 Rio Olympics medal standings. Marsh was the Head U.S. Olympic Women's Swim Coach in Rio, leading Team USA to the most medals in USA Swimming's already storied modern history.

Prior to founding Team Elite, Marsh was the men's and women's swimming coach at Auburn University. After becoming head coach in 1990, Marsh led the men's team to seven NCAA national championships (1997, 1999, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007) and the women's team to five national championships (2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007). Marsh is the most successful Auburn coach regardless of sport and he is arguably the most successful in the state of Alabama and the SEC. Marsh's 12 NCAA titles surpass the six won by football coach Bear Bryant at Alabama. Marsh has won 17 SEC titles (13 men and 4 women), by far the most of any Auburn coach or team. In 2003 he led both the men's and women's teams to a sweep of the NCAA titles, a first in collegiate Swimming and Diving. Marsh and the Tigers went on to repeat this accomplishment three more times (2004, 2006, and 2007).
