Richard Quick On Texas Sports Hall Of Fame Ballot
July 6, 2010
AUBURN, Ala. - Coaching legend Richard Quick has been placed on the 2010 Texas Sports Hall of Fame Ballot, the TSHOF Selection Committee announced.
Quick, who was the first coach to win a national title at three schools, earned his 13th with Auburn at the 2009 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships. The mark is the most in NCAA Division I swimming history. Quick coached a combined 32 seasons at five different schools: SMU, Iowa State, Texas, Stanford and Auburn (from 1978-82 and 2007-09).
Internationally, Quick was the head coach of the United States team at the 1988, 1996 and 2000 Olympic Games and also served as an assistant at the 1984, 1992 and 2004 Olympics.
Quick, who passed away in June 2009, will represent SMU on the TSHOF ballot. Official Voting Members of the Texas Sports Hall of Fame will once again be able to help the selection committee determine the newest class. Those who have joined the museum's Official Voting Member Program (OVM) will receive their ballots by the end of this month. The OVM sign-up deadline to be able to vote for the upcoming class is August 1st, 2010. The public can join and receive an official ballot by going to the museum's website, www.tshof.org.
The official announcement of the Class of 2010 will be made in September. The ceremonies to enshrine the Class of 2010 will take place in early 2011 in Waco. Generally, six nominees from the primary ballot and two from the veterans' ballot will comprise a Class.
