Baker in, Moody out as U.S. women's water polo coach
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. -- Guy Baker has replaced Heather Moody as coach of the U.S. women's water polo team, leaving his positions as national team director and head coach of the U.S. men.
The changes were prompted by a reorganization of USA Water Polo, which did away with Baker's job as high performance director.
Moody, a two-time Olympian serving as interim coach, guided the U.S. women to a silver medal at the world championships in Montreal in July. They lost to Hungary in overtime of the gold-medal game.
"I look forward to returning to the team and I will try not to get in the way," Baker said.
He first coached the U.S. women in 1998, guiding them to medals at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and the Athens Games.
