Head Diving Coach Duane Osmanski

Duane Osmanski has served as Nebraska-Kearney head diving head coach for over 20 years.

During his tenure, Osmanski has seen two of his divers, Dusty Walston and Annie Moyer, earn Division II All-American honors. He also helped Jennifer Kirkland qualify for the 2008 NCAA Championships.

He and his wife Teresa, UNK's former head women’s swimming coach, live in Kearney with their son.
