The Dearborn Dolphins Swim Team is pleased to announce that Shannon
Dunworth will return to DRD as its new Head Coach. His coaching
resume spans 35 years working with swimmers of all levels, while
earning state and national recognition. Returning to his hometown
in Michigan, Coach Dunworth will be writing the next chapter of the
storied club his father, Jack Dunworth, co-founded. Coach Dunworth
began his coaching career with DRD in the 1980’s as an
assistant to his father who is also the namesake of the
city’s largest pool. We are happy to welcome Shannon Dunworth
back to Dearborn and the Dolphins!
Coach Nolan is in his fourth year with DRD.
He grew up in Dearborn and graduated from Edsel Ford High
School. He's been in the water from a very young age and at age 10
he joined DRD and fell in love with the sport. While on the Edsel
Ford swim team, Nolan was twice nominated team captain, and a three
time state competitor. Being on deck and making a positive impact
in swimmers’ lives, just as many of my past coaches did for
him, has heavily drawn him to becoming a coach. He is currently
attending Wayne State University and studying computer science.
Coach Nolan is the assistant coach for both the womens and mens
swim teams at Edsel Ford High School. Nolan is also the head coach
for both the girls and boys swim teams at O.L. Smith Middle School.
