Longtime swimming coach Dick Shoulberg, who has been on administrative leave from Germantown Academy in Fort Washington since October, will return as coach emeritus for the remainder of the school year, according to a letter Monday night from the head of school, Jim Connor.
Shoulberg, who cofounded the Germantown Academy Aquatic Club and turned it into an elite national squad over the last 44 years, could not be reached for comment.
Connor's letter says Shoulberg "took a leave of absence . . . to address health concerns," and rebuts unspecified rumors to the contrary. Shoulberg told The Inquirer on Dec. 4 that his leave was not voluntary and that he was not ill.
