INDIANAPOLIS — Three-time Olympic coach Jeff Huber is joining USA Diving as director of education.

Huber has taught at Indiana University since 2013, focusing on educational psychology as well as theories of cognition and motor learning.

USA Diving says coaching education is one of its top priorities, and Huber is an ideal candidate to fill the post.

A coach for 37 years, Huber worked with the U.S. team at the 2000 Sydney Games, the 2004 Athens Game and the 2008 Beijing Games. He says he missed diving after being away from the sport the last four years.

Huber will officially start his new job Sept. 5 while continuing his academic duties at Indiana.
