The 2011-12 season marks Peter Linn's 24th season as the head coach of the Eastern Michigan University men's swimming team. Linn also took over as head coach of the women's program in 2004.
In his 23 seasons as men's head coach, Linn has guided the Eagles to 19 Mid-American Conference Championships, including eight in a row from 1988-1996. EMU finished as conference runner-up during the other four seasons under Linn's guidance. The Eagles are currently riding a 59-MAC dual meet unbeaten streak dating back to the 1997-98 season.
Throughout his tenure as men's coach, Linn has a 167-50 overall record, including a 103-6 MAC mark.
On the women's side, Linn took over for the 2004-05 season and has led the Eagles to a 48-26 mark in six seasons. He was selected MAC Coach of the Year in his first season at the helm after a third-place showing at the MAC Championships. He then led EMU to its first women's swimming title in 2005-06, once again earning Coach of the Year honors. The 2006-07 season saw the Eagles capture the conference championship for the second consecutive season, including a 6-1 conference mark. He became the only coach to win both men's and women's team championships in the same year.
Linn returned to EMU in 1988 after leading Upper Arlington (Ohio) High School to three consecutive state championships, along with six straight district titles, while developing 32 individual district champions and eight individual state champions. He was also president of the Ohio High School Swimming Coaches Association in 1987-88. He was named Coach of the Year in the Ohio prep ranks in 1985, 1986 and 1987.
Prior to taking over at Upper Arlington, Linn coached at Shaker Heights (Ohio) High School from 1976-82 where he led the swimmers to their first league championship in 20 years. He was named Northeast Ohio Coach of the Year in 1981 and 1982. In 2002, Linn was elected to the Ohio High School Swimming Coaches Hall of Fame.
Linn attended Eastern Michigan University from 1969-74 and received a bachelor's of science degree with a double major in mathematics and biology. He was inducted into the EMU Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2006. Linn has two sons, Scott is an assistant football coach at Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York while Jamie is a senior at Eastern Michigan University.

The meets showed head coach Peter Linn that there are still some areas of improvement for his squads.
"It gave us an idea of what to work on," said EMU coach Peter Linn.
"[The Falcons] are number two in the conference so they're pretty good," Linn said.

With the short trip back home, EMU's head coach Peter Linn still felt concerned about fatigue setting in early going into the matchup against the Rockets.
"It was difficult to make the quick turnaround given that Toledo is the defending Mid-American Conference champion, but at the end of the day it worked out well," Linn said.
Out of the 16 events, the Eagles won nine and the Rockets won seven.
"I feel very good about the nine victories, but at the same time because the heats were very close, the results could have went either way," Linn said.
Linn said, "Emig is always good.
"This time of the year, Buck does training regimens that can be grueling, but at the end of the day, all of the hard work pays off," Linn said.

EMU men's head coach Peter Linn said, "We are still in the process of trying to find out what events the swimmers can compete in, and you can only swim at most four times in any meet."
Linn said every swimmer is expected to play a role in order to be successful against the Warriors.
"We really need more than just one good swimmer, we must have everybody contribute because in order to be successful in the meets, you need to get some places besides first or we could lose the meet," Linn said.
"Most of the records are set now at meets where there is a lot of training preparation, and that there are sophisticated suits that you seldom wear once or twice a year and it is unusual for someone to break a team record unless it's at a conference championship or a national championship," Linn said.
