Josh Skube, the University of Notre Dame women’s swimming and diving interim assistant coach during the 2001-02 season, has accepted a full-time position in the University’s physical education department and will remain with the team as a full-time voluntary assistant coach.

Skube just completed his master’s degree in kinesiology from Indiana University in 2002 and will put that knowledge to work as an Assistant Professional Specialist in the Notre Dame physical education department. He worked in the physical education department on a part-time basis during the 2001-02 academic year.

“Josh did an incredible job last season while working two full-time jobs,” Notre Dame head women’s swimming and diving coach Bailey Weathers says.

“Even with the amount of time he dedicated to our team last season and his obligations in the physical education department, he accomplished some amazing things. I have never seen anyone work harder and be so successful at two jobs.

“We are excited that Josh will continue to work with our team, even though we know he has full-time obligations in the physical education department. He is an important part of our program and we are happy that he will be with us for the future.”

Skube will begin his third year with the women’s swimming and diving team this fall. He joined the Irish coaching staff in 2000-01, then moved into an interim assistant coach position for 2001-02. He joins new assistant coach Anne Marie Stricklin, diving coach Caiming Xie and Weathers to complete the Irish coaching staff for 2002-03.
