Pam Armold, former head women's swimming coach at Cornell and most recently an assistant men's and women's swimming coach at Yale, is in her 15th year in the position of aquatics coordinator at Bucknell. In 2011, she added duties as Assistant Director of Athletics/Aquatics and Auxiliary Services.

A 1977 graduate of the University of Vermont, Armold had served as assistant men's and women's swimming coach at Yale from 1998 to 2002. That followed a 10-year stint at Cornell, the first eight as an assistant men's and women's coach, and the final two (1996-98) as head women's coach after the Big Red program restructured.
Armold, who received a master of science degree in physical education from Ithaca College in 1980, took her first head coaching position in the fall of 1980 at Humboldt State, where she coached the women's swimming team and lectured in the physical education department for eight years.
She has a wealth of recreational swimming experience as well, having served as an instructor in swimming, water safety and lifeguard training. Armold also managed a pair of swimming pools in Glendale, Calif., during her stint at Humboldt State. Armold is certified by the American Red Cross in the areas of water safety instructor training, water safety instruction, lifeguard instruction and first aid/CPR instruction.
