Coaches Corner: Leading w/Compassion, Jim Richardson

By Fitter and Faster Staff

In this special edition of the Fitter & Faster Coaches Corner, host Mike Murray sits down with longtime University of Michigan Head Women’s Coach, Jim Richardson, for a discussion about coaching with compassion, the history of color chart training, developing tight-knit relationships with club coaches and sharing a love for the sport of swimming.

During his time at Michigan, Richardson lead the Wolverines to many Big-10 Team titles, coached NCAA Champions and All-Americans, Olympians, and dozens of USA Swimming National Team members. He is an avid outdoorsman and uses his free time to connect with his family and shares a deep appreciation for self reflection through the sport of fishing. ​
