Mr. Clint Swan - Varsity Head Coach
Crown Point head coach Clint Swan is a 1991 graduate of Rensselaer High School and a 1995 graduate of Saint Joseph’s College. Coach Swan was inducted into the Rensselaer High School Hall of Fame in 2013. He is in his 22nd year as a basketball coach, 19th as a head coach. Swan started his coaching career as the junior varsity coach at three different high schools: North Newton, Tri-County, and Andrean.
After one year of junior varsity work at Andrean, he was named Andrean’s head coach in the summer of 1997 at the age of 24 making him the youngest head coach in the state. His first four years at Andrean were successful ones as Swan amassed 83 wins against only 16 defeats taking the 59’ers to three semi-states and the state championship game in 2000 where the Niners lost to Indianapolis Brebeuf at Conseco Fieldhouse. In Swan’s first three years as a head coach, Andrean put together the finest record in the state for that time period except for only Marion High School.
From Andrean Swan went to Frankfort High School where the Hot Dogs were twice ranked in the Associated Press Class 3A Top Ten. In Swan’s 18 years as a head coach, his career coaching record is 255-157. He has coached two Indiana All-Stars and nine Division-I college players. In the summer of 2014, Swan was selected to be an assistant coach for the Indiana All-Star team. Also, seven of his former assistant coaches have gone on to become head coaches.
While at Crown Point, Swan has amassed a record of 117-85. In 2008 his Bulldogs won the Michigan City Sectional finishing the year with a 17-7 record. The following season, CP won 15 games falling in the sectional championship to Valparaiso, and in 2011, Crown Point went 18-4, winning more games than Crown Point had won in more than 20 years. The Bulldogs won the sectional again in 2015 and advanced to the Elite 8 finishing the season with a 19-9 record. That year culminated with Swan’s being named the Times Coach of the Year. It was his third time winning the award, tied for most all-time.
Swan teaches English at Crown Point High School. He and his wife, Kimberly, a guidance counselor at Crown Point, have one child, Elliot, who is a fourth grader at Solon Robinson Elementary.
