Jim Dailey enters his 19th season as head coach of the Lafayette swimming program. Dailey served as the interim coach during the 1993-94 campaign, after which he became the Leopards' 12th head coach in program history. In 2006, Dailey was named Patriot League Women's Swimming Coach of the Year.

A 1989 graduate of the State University of New York at Cortland, Dailey was a two-time qualifier for the NCAA Division III Nationals, advancing in the 200 fly and 400 IM.

Since taking over at Lafayette, Dailey has guided the Leopards to a total of 35 individual Patriot League titles and has had a total of 21 men and 18 women selected to the All-Patriot League team. Four of his men were on the Patriot League All-Decade team.

Displaying a constant commitment to academics and athletics, his women's program has been named to the CSCAA Academic All American list 37 of the last 38 semesters, while the men have made the list 30 times during that period.

Dailey is also a water safety and lifeguard training instructor. He and his wife Brenda have identical twins, James and Alexander, and live in Bethlehem Township.

Lafayette Athletics, as a partner in the mission of the College, provides an incredibly effective learning experience for student-athletes through competitive NCAA Division I athletics. Lafayette sponsors 23 varsity sports with more than 600 student-athletes.
