Steve VonSchriltz ends his term as coach of the Dublin Coffman Shamrocks

Steve VonSchriltz recently stepped down as swimming and diving coach at Dublin Coffman after a 15-season tenure that included the Shamrocks women's team winning their first State Championship in 2020.

Steve VonSchriltz has considered stepping down as Dublin Coffman’s swimming and diving coach after the women’s team won the Division I State Championship in 2020.

It would have been hard to blame him given the scale of the accomplishment. Not only did the Shamrocks win their first state title, but they did so with just six athletes competing in the competition.

In the end, VonSchriltz decided to return for a 15th season that saw three Coffman swimmers win state titles. Two of those swimmers – aspiring sophomore Emily Brown and senior Zac Stump of the men’s team – topped the list of expected returns for athletic director Duane Sheldon to be hired as VonSchriltz’s successor.

Von Schriltz recently informed his athletes that he had quit.

“I really wanted to quit after winning the state championship, and I stayed another year mainly because of my relationship with Ellie Andrews, who I had been coaching since she was about 9 years old,” he said. he declared on July 14.
