WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

UNCW has officially named Jason Memont as the new swimming and diving coach.

According to UNCW, Memont has spent the last seven years at the University of South Carolina assisting Coach McGee Moody with all phases of the successful SEC program in Columbia.

Memont is taking over for veteran coach David Allen, who recently retired after a 37-year career that produced 16 CAA championships.

"I'd like to thank Jimmy Bass and the UNCW athletic department for this opportunity," said Memont, a native of Groveland, Mass. "I'm looking forward to following in Dave Allen's footsteps and building on the success he had. I'd like to continue our winning tradition in the CAA and have an impact on the national scene."

Before joining the USC program, Memont spent three seasons with Moody at Colonial Athletic Association rival William & Mary.
