Jim Everett, retired president and CEO of the Treasure Valley Family YMCA, will become the new men’s and women’s swim coach at College of Idaho.

Everett, who served as the Y’s top administrator for 28 years, will replace Christine Mabile, who was named assistant coach at the University of Missouri.

Everett had served as head swim coach at the Marietta, Ohio YMCA and the Boise YMCA. He took the teams to national competitions for the first time.

“I was blessed to have coaches that had a tremendously positive impact on my life,” Everett said. “I want to help provide student-athletes what was given to me in my collegiate swimming career. I am pinching myself that I have the opportunity to have this second calling in life.”

C of I’s women’s swim team has placed in the top 10 at the NAIA Championships in the past three years. The men’s team ranked 10th at the 2016 national meet.

Everett has served on C of I’s board of trustees.
