GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida has hired Dale Schultz as its diving coach.

The 53-year-old Schultz comes to Gainesville from Noblesville, Indiana, where he was the associate head coach at Ripfest Diving. Prior to that, Schultz spent 16 years at fellow Southeastern Conference school Arkansas (1989-2000, 2008-13). He also served as Purdue’s diving coach in 1988-89.

Schultz graduated from Kansas State in 1984. The Akron, New York, native becomes part of a UF swimming and diving program that has four national championships (two men, two women), 52 SEC titles (35 men, 17 women) and produced 389 All-Americans.

Schultz replaces Donnie Craine, who died in a boating accident in April. Craine coached Florida’s diving program the past 30 seasons and was a five-time recipient of the league’s coach of the year honors.
