Weekly #10: U-M to Compete for Program's 16th Big Ten Title
Geoff Corrigan enters his fifth season as an assistant coach of the Michigan men's gymnastics team fresh off aiding the Wolverines to their fifth NCAA Championship in program history, and took home 2013 CGA Regional Assistant Coach of the Year accolades.
The success comes on the heels of a busy summer. Corrigan accompanied Syque Caesar as a member of the Bengali National Team, and served as head coach for the squad at the 2012 Olympic Games. In 2012, he played an intricate role in U-M's sixth-place finish at the NCAA Championships.
In his first year with Wolverines, Corrigan helped Michigan to its fourth NCAA team title, the second under Kurt Golder and first since 1999. Corrigan's inaugural squad also set the record for most All-America honors with seven individuals combining for a record 13 awards, a feat that was equaled during the most recent 2013 season.
Corrigan, a 2005 university graduate, was a four-year letter winner (2002-05), a 2005 All-American on the parallel bars and served as team captain for the 2004-05 season. After his time at Michigan, Corrigan trained under former world champion Vitaly Marinich at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. While there, he placed seventh in the all-around at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships and earned a place on the U.S. senior national team. In 2008, he served as the athlete ambassador at the Olympic Training Center.
Corrigan and his wife, Rachel, is a fellow U-M graduate. The couple resides in Ann Arbor.
