Brian Loeffler, a former four-year letterwinner on Loyola's swimming and diving team, is one of the longest-standing coaches at Loyola and will be in his 27th season as head coach of the swimming and diving teams in 2018-2019.

Loeffler, who graduated from Loyola in 1991, has been a part of the Greyhounds program for the last 31 years, spending 1987-1991 as a student-athlete, 1991-1992 as an assistant coach and 1992 through current day as the head coach.

In his time on the Evergreen campus, Loeffler has led Loyola to eight Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference titles - four with the women's team (1993, '94, '95, `96) and four with the men's team (1995, 2009, '10, `11). He has also been named the MAAC Coach of the Year six times (men - 2007, '08, '11; women - 2002, `05, '08).

In addition, Loeffler has had five male and three female swimmers earn Most Outstanding Swimmer of the Year honors, while one male and one female have been named the league's Most Outstanding Diver of the Year under Loeffler's guidance.

At the 2018 Patriot League Championships, Ben Cono became the first Loyola student-athlete to earn Swimmer of the Meet honors, taking the male recognition after winning his third-straight 100 breaststroke title and also claiming the top spot in the 200 breaststroke.

His men's team has won each of the last three MAAC titles and it has posted a top-five finish in 19 of the 20 championships.

On the women's side, the Greyhounds have been in the top three throughout 18 of the 20 conference meets and have never finished below fourth.

In addition, Loeffler has helped his teams break all 14 individual school records on both the men's and women's side, in addition to all eight relay records.

During his swimming career at Loyola, Loeffler competed in the backstroke, butterfly and individual medley events. He graduated from the Evergreen campus in 1991 as the school-record holder in several events, including the 400-yard and 400-meter medley relays. Loeffler was also a member of 200-meter medley relay teams which recorded eight of the top-10 times in school history.

A 1991 graduate of Loyola, Loeffler earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Management Information Systems before earning his MBA in 1994. He is a longtime Baltimore native who graduated from Calvert Hall College High School in 1987.

Loeffler and his wife, Sarah, reside in Baltimore with their sons, Sam and Tim, and daughter, Lucy.
