Andrew Goe begins his second season as the Diving Coach for the Eagles. Head women's swimming & diving coach Neal Studd announced his hiring in September 2010.
In his first season in charge of the diving program, Goe had a very successful season culminating with being named the CCSA Women's Diving Coach of the Year. Senior diver Karmin McNamara was named the Diver of the Year and the championship's Most Outstanding Diver after finishing in first in the 1-meter competition and second in the 3-meter at the league meet under Goe's watch. McNamara also set the school record in the 1-meter, scoring a 285.45 against FAU. Senior Gabrielle Shaw also earned an All-Conference watch under Goe's tutelage, with a third-place finish in the 1-meter.
Prior to FGCU, Goe coached the men's and women's dive team at Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference member Canisius College in Buffalo, N.Y. During his time at Canisius, Goe coached both the men and women divers and assisted in travel planning, skill development and conditioning. Under Goe's direction in 2009 and 2010, several women divers placed into the MAAC Championship finals on the 1-meter and 3-meter dive board. Goe also coached a Canisius diver who broke the school's 3-meter, 11 dive record in 2009 and another who went on to place in the top eight in the 1-meter at the Eastern College Athletic Conference meet.
In the summer of 2010, Goe served as a diving official for the Empire State games in addition to directing summer diving clinics. In his 14 years of experience, he has coached several divers to middle school, high school and conference records and founded two diving clubs for ages 10-18.
Goe is a 1997 graduate from Ball State in Muncie, Ind. He received a bachelor's degree in elementary education before pursing his master's in education in 2004 from Indiana Wesleyan.
