UT men's swimming coach fired for misconduct

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Longtime Tennessee men's swimming and diving coach John Trembley has been fired for "gross misconduct."

Tennessee athletics director Dave Hart announced Tuesday that he had relieved the 23-year Volunteers coach of his duties but did not specify what kind of misconduct led to the termination.

The 59-year-old Trembley was named the Southeastern Conference swimming coach of the year in 2011, the sixth time he's received the honor. He received $100,000 as an annual base salary and additional pay for broadcast appearances and endorsements.

Assistant coach Lars Jorgensen will serve as interim coach for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.
