“After a comprehensive national search, we are thrilled to have Ryan Castle as the new leader of Indiana water polo,” [Indiana Athletic Director Fred] Glass said. “Ryan has a terrific record of player and team development at both the collegiate and international levels, is a tireless recruiter, a noted tactician and a person who values the tenets of the Spirit of Indiana. We are excited to have Ryan at IU.”
