Varsity Head Coach
Crown Point head coach Clint Swan is a 1991 graduate of Rensselaer Central High School and a 1995 graduate of Saint Joseph’s College. Coach Swan was inducted into the Rensselaer High School Hall of Fame in 2013. He is in his 25th year as a basketball coach, 22nd as a head coach. In Swan’s first three years as a coach, he coached the junior varsity teams at three different high schools: North Newton, Tri-County, and Andrean.
After his year of junior varsity work at Andrean, he was named their head coach in the summer of 1997 at the age of 24 making him the youngest head coach in the state. His first four years at Andrean were successful ones as Swan amassed 83 wins against only 16 defeats taking the 59’ers to three semi-states and the state championship game in 2000 where the Niners lost to Indianapolis Brebeuf at Conseco Fieldhouse (currently Bankers Life Fieldhouse). In Swan’s first three years as a head coach, Andrean put together the finest record in the state for that time period except for only Marion High School.
From Andrean Swan went to Frankfort High School where the Hot Dogs were twice ranked in the Associated Press Class 3A Top Ten. In Swan’s 20 years as a head coach, his career coaching record is 307-183. He has coached four Indiana All-Stars and 11 Division-I college players. In the summer of 2014, Swan was selected to be an assistant coach for the Indiana All-Star team. Also, seven of his former assistant coaches have gone on to become head coaches.
While at Crown Point, Swan has amassed a record of 169-111. In 2008 his Bulldogs won the Michigan City Sectional finishing the year with a 17-7 record. The following season, CP won 15 games falling in the sectional championship to Valparaiso, and in 2011, Crown Point went 18-4, winning more games than Crown Point had won in more than 20 years. The Bulldogs won the sectional again in 2015 and 2016 and advanced to the Elite 8 finishing with 19-9 records in each of those two seasons. During the 2016-17 season, the Bulldogs finished 22-4, which set a school record for victories. The Bulldogs also won the Duneland Athletic Conference championship for the first time since 1999. Swan was named the Times Coach of the Year in 2015. It was his third time winning the award, tied for most all-time. He also won the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association District I Coach of the Year award for District I, his second time earning that honor.
Swan teaches English at Crown Point High School. He and his wife, Kimberly, a guidance counselor at Crown Point, have one child, Elliot, who is a sixth grader at Taft Middle School.
