Assistant Coach

Kirk Hampleman is in his first year as an Assistant Coach at Florida State. Hampleman spent six seasons as an assistant at the University of Iowa where he primarily worked with the stroke and IM groups. He will continue that trade as he transitions into a Seminole and will head up the distance and stroke groups. In six seasons at Iowa, Hampleman helped build the Hawkeyes program each year by improving their finishes at the Big Ten Championships setting new school records and climbing in the CSCAA rankings.

2011-12 for the Hawkeyes was a historical one as Hampleman guided the men's team to their best Big Ten finish of fifth since 1996. They finished the season with a 7-2 dual meet record, running its four-year mark to 31-5, achieving a program best of 10th in the CSCAA dual meet ranking and finished the season ranked 14th. The women posted a 10-6 record, the most dual victories since the 1985-86 season. Hampleman also coached 14 swimmers to Olympic Trial cuts in 2012.

Hampleman is not a stranger to Tallahassee as he served as a graduate assistant coach at Florida State University from 2004-2006 before joining Iowa's staff. His specialties included training the stroke and sprint freestyle groups. In 2006, Florida State won its first ever women's ACC team championship. His other experience as a coach include an assistant position at Tanoan Country Club in Albuquerque, N.M., in 2002.

Hampleman was a nine-time All-America swimmer at Auburn University from 1998-2002. He helped the Tigers to a 1999 NCAA team title, and received the Auburn Swimming Award in 2002, which recognizes superior scholarship, leadership and performance. He finished third in the 200 backstroke and eighth in the 200 individual medley at the 2002 NCAA Championships. He was also an SEC Champion in the 400 Medley Relay in 2002.

Hampleman earned his bachelor's degree in mass communication from Auburn in 2002. He received a master's degree in physical education-sport administration from Florida State in 2006. He and his wife, Kendra, have two sons, Pierce (4) and newborn Kirby.
