Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Kohawk Director of Athletics John Chandler announced Kohawk swimming and diving head coach Justin Jennings is leaving to take a position as assistant coach at NCAA Division I Colgate University in Hamilton, N.Y.

Coe College assistant coach swimming and diving coach Brian Ruffles has been promoted to the head coach of the program.

"It was a very tough decision to leave Coe College," Jennings said. "There are so many great things happening here that will continue to make Coe one of the best colleges in the country. Taking the assistant coaching position at Colgate was an opportunity that I felt possessed a new set of challenges that I am ready to take on at this point in my career."

Under Jennings' leadership, the Kohawk women's swimming and diving teams placed sixth at the Liberal Arts Championships.

During his time at Coe, 34 men and 19 women earned All-Iowa Conference honors. The two teams combined to set nine school records and had 48 top-five finishes in school history.

Ruffles served as Jennings' assistant coach for the past six year.
