College of Idaho athletic director Reagan Rossi has announced the hiring of former Treasure Valley Family YMCA CEO Jim Everett as the new head coach of the C of I men’s and women’s swim program.
Everett replaces Christine Mabile, who left the College last month to become an assistant coach at the University of Missouri.
A 10-time Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association champion, three-year co-captain, four-year Most Valuable Swimmer and first swimmer inducted into the Albion College Hall of Fame, Everett served as head swim coach at the Marietta YMCA in Ohio and the Boise Y Swim teams– taking both programs to Nationals for the first time. Everett coached multiple athletes who went on to become national champions, including one who was an Olympic Gold medalist and world record holder. Though he spent 41 years working for the “Y” – including building the Treasure Valley facilities into some of the best in the United States, coaching was his calling.
