Brian Strom is now in his 23rd year as head diving coach at North Dakota.

Last season, senior Megan Keidel wrapped up her UND career with a record dive of 203.70 on the platform, bettering her own record set earlier in the year. On the men's side, junior Richard Eberle beat his own record of 218.20 with a score of 270.80 at the MPSF Championships in the platform event.

During the 2010-11 season, Strom coached Richard Eberle to UND-record dives on the 3-meter and the platform, and the second-best performance at UND on the 1-meter. Eberle finished the season with nine event titles, five on the 1-meter and four on the 3-meter.

On the women's side, Stephenie Varichak brought home four event titles and Megan Keidel added another two.

Strom began coaching at UND midway through the 1990-91 season and was named North Central Conference Diving Coach of the Year for that season. He went on to received that honor nine more times: 1991, 1993, 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2004, and 2005.

Under his direction, 21 divers have earned a total of 69 All-America honors while competing for North Dakota. Strom has also coached the Sioux to 44 NCAA Division II top-five finishes and 16 different divers have been voted NCC Diver of the Year.

In 2003, Erin Borgschatz captured UND's first female NCAA national title.

That summer, Strom was named the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sports Writers Association's Female Team Coach of the Year and NCAA Division II Diving Coach of the Year.

In 2004, he coached Kasey Moseley to UND's first male NCAA national title.

A native of Topeka, Kan., Strom graduated from the University of Minnesota-Crookston in 1978 with a degree in natural resources and from the University of North Dakota in 2002 with a degree in physical education.

Strom currently resides in Grand Forks with his wife, Kimberly, and their 12-year-old daughter, Jenna.
