Douglas Alban
BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford has named Douglas Alban the new head swimming coach of the Panthers’ men’s and women’s teams.

Alban arrives at Pitt-Bradford after five years as an assistant swimming and diving coach at the University of the South located in Sewanee, Tenn.

With the Tigers, Alban helped coach five swimmers to the NCAA Division III championships, five honorable mention All-Americans, and one All-American. During his time there, the Sewanee swim program established 19 school records, and he earned Assistant Coach of the Year Honorable Mention recognition in 2013.

“We are very pleased to have Coach Alban joining our staff,” said Director of Athletics Bret Butler. “He brings a wealth of swimming knowledge to our team, from swimming at a high level, to coaching at a very established college program.

“I am excited to see what the future has in store for Pitt-Bradford swimming,” Butler added. “I believe Doug will be a fabulous coach.”

Prior to coaching at Sewanee, Alban was a graduate assistant at Goucher College in Baltimore, Md., for two years, during which time the men’s team broke 17 schools records and the women’s team three.

In addition, Alban was previously the pool manager and head swim team coach at the Towson Country Club, coached for the North Baltimore Aquatics Club, and also at Wappingers Central School District, in Wappingers Falls, N.Y., and the Big Blue Swimming Club in Beacon, N.Y.

Alban is a graduate of Loyola College in Maryland, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in mathematical science, and Goucher, where he received his Master in Education in athletic leadership and administration.

He was a four-year Division I varsity letter winner at Loyola and a four-year ECAC qualifier. He left the Greyhounds sitting in the top five in school history in six events and having reached the finals of every MAAC Conference championship event in which he had qualified.

Alban takes over for the late Ed Bahan, who had coached the Panthers for six seasons before passing away unexpectedly last November.

Bahan had taken over a program just two years after its inception and transformed it into one of the top programs in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference.

During his tenure, the Panthers had 46 all-conference performers, established more than 200 records and had four AMCC Swimmers of the Year. In addition, Bahan was named the AMCC Coach of the Year six times.

Alban is the second hire for Butler this spring, who last week named Zach Foster as the Panthers’ new head baseball coach.
