Greg Kristoff joined the Rice staff in July 2002 and is in his fifth season as assistant coach for the Owls.
Kristoff assists with every aspect of the Rice swim program. His duties include but are not limited to coaching and training the student-athletes, team stategies and assignments for meets, recruiting, team travel and monitoring the Owls' individual academic progress.
A former assistant at the University of Kansas, Kristoff graduated from Truman State University and earned his master's degree in exercise physiology at TCU where he served two seasons as an assistant coach.
Prior to joining the staff at TCU, Kristoff worked as a student assistant coach for one season at Truman State. He also served as a coach/counselor for two summers with the Longhorn Swim Camp at the University of Texas.
The 31-year-old native of Ballwin, Mo., was a 12-time Division II all-America under head coach Seth Huston at Truman State. He was named the team's most valuable swimmer four times and served as team captain for two years, setting numerous team and conference records in the IM and backstroke events.
"Greg was a great leader and contributor while I was at Truman, and he has continued to learn and grow as a coach." Huston said. "He provides experience, loyalty and organization to the coaching staff, and I know he is a great fit for the swim program as well as the University."
Kristoff is an avid golfer and life-long fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. He is married to the former Andrea Beauchamp of Prairie Village, Kan. The couple have two children, swimming prodigy Keaton Thomas (2) and future star Avery, born in May 2006.
