Bryan Gillooly

Ableman, 35, men's diving coach at the University of Miami, was named NCAA men's diving coach of the year for the second consecutive time and for the fifth year in the last seven after the Hurricanes won two of three national titles at the NCAA championships in the three-meter springboard and the 10-meter platform events. Gillooly, a Miami sophomore, was named NCAA Diver of the Year after he won off the platform and finished second in the three-meter competition at the championships.
