Position: Diving Coach
Coach Pollino came to Brown in 2001 after eight years at The University of Massachusetts (Amherst). In his time at Brown he has revitalized both the Men's and Women's diving programs, now among the most competitive in both the EISL and the Ivy League.

The 2005-2006 season saw Jessica Larson '06 (Wayland, MA) post an undefeated dual meet season, then go on to win the Ivy Championship on the 1-meter, sharing Diver of the Meet honors. Larson then went on to finish 2nd on 1-meter at the NCAA Zone A Championships. At the 2007 Ivy Championships, Brown had three of the Top eight divers on 1-meter when Amy Latinen '07 (Fenton, MI), Dana Meadow '07 (Chicago, IL), and Katie Olko '10 (Harrison, NY) dove into the Ivy Final. Four divers qualified for the 2007 NCAA Zone A Championships, Latinen and Meadow for the Women, and Kai Robinson '09 (Vaschon, WA) and CJ Kambe '10 (Unionville, CT) for the Men. Since 2001, five Brown divers have received National Academic recognition, and two have been named to the Academic All-Ivy Team with Larson earning CoSIDA Academic All-America honors (District I) in 2006.

A native of Winchester, MA, Pollino began competitive diving at age seven and won numerous AAU and Junior Olympic awards. He was a three-time All-American selection in 1990 and 1991 for Springfield College, a New England Collegiate Diving Champion, and in his senior year was awarded the Hugh McCurdy Award for Outstanding Diver in New England. He is the Head Coach and Director of the Providence Twisters Diving Club, and is active at various levels of collegiate and age group diving. He graduated from Springfield College in 1991 with a degree in Physical Education.
