John Geissinger is in his fourth year as an assistant men's and women's swimming coach at W&L. After two seasons as a non-faculty assistant coach, he was promoted to a faculty assistant position prior to the 2012-13 school year.

Over his first three seasons, the program has achieved some pretty remarkable feats.  The women's team has claimed three Old Dominion Athletic Conference titles and has set numerous school records, including seven during the 2012-13 school year alone.  The men's team has produced two Top 30 finishes at the NCAA Championships, while five individual swimmers and five relays have received All-America honors for their finishes at NCAA's.  Additionally, the men have set five school records over the last two seasons.

Geissinger came to W&L after spending the past year as an intern with IMG Media. A 2009 graduate of Denison University,  Geissinger was a four-year member of the swim team. A four-time NCAA Division III Championship qualifier, he earned All-America honors 22 times during his career, setting five Denison records and seven conference records. 

The 2009 NCAC Swimmer of the Year, he also helped set the NCAA Division III record in the 800 free relay.  Geissinger helped Denison to four Top 3 finishes at the NCAA Championships in addition to the 2009 NCAC title.

He graduated from Denison with a bachelor of arts degree in history.
