Fired Cal swim coach Teri McKeever admits to emotional misconduct

Dec 30, 2023

Former California women's swimming and diving coach Teri McKeever received a three-month suspension and was put on 12-month probation for "emotional misconduct" by the U.S. Center for SafeSport following an investigation into allegations that led to her dismissal by Cal this year.

Attorney Jon Little, who represented McKeever in the SafeSport matter, confirmed to The Times the length of the suspension and probation and that the longtime coach admitted to some of but not all of the alleged misconduct that took place between 2018 and 2022.

"What she admits to basically is that she cursed, screamed at kids and that she grabbed [Cal swimmer] Emily Gantriis’ arm," Little told The Times by phone Friday morning, adding that McKeever is sorry for the incident involving Gantriis. "That’s the extent of her admissions."
