Coaching Staff


Head Coach TBA

Samantha Graham

Graham, a former diver for America East foe University of Maine, wrapped up her second year as the diving coach at Binghamton in 2013-14. In her two seasons, Graham has been influential in sending Devin Zdanowski to the NCAA Zone Diving Championships in back-to-back years. In addition, the Bearcats have won four medals at the America East Championships under her watch; including the program’s first-ever gold medal in a diving event (men or women) from Imani Williams in 2013.

Graham, a native of Vestal, returned home to jump on board with the coaching staff at Binghamton University in the fall of 2012. During her four years at Maine, Graham was a three-time finalist at the America East Championships and earned the Miller Diving Award and Chandler Comeback Award from her alma mater. She ranks second all-time at Maine on the one-meter board.

The 2010 University of Maine graduate joined the Binghamton staff after spending 2010-11 coaching at Vestal High School. While there, Graham was responsible for the men and women divers which is her current focus at Binghamton. She coached three men and three women divers to top-12 finishes at the Section IV Championships. Graham is a member of USA Diving and has spent several years coaching at camps in both Binghamton and Maine.

Graham earned her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and has a K-12 teaching certification in the state of Maine. Her brother Ryan Graham dove for Binghamton from 2005-2009 and still holds the one-meter and three-meter diving records.

R.C. Weston

Assistant coach R.C. Weston concluded his first season with the Binghamton swimming and diving program in 2013-14. He came to Vestal most recently from Johnson City, TN where he served as the head coach of NAIA school Milligan College in 2012-13.

In his first year with the program, Weston helped the women to a 4-2 dual record and the men to a runner-up finish at the 2014 ECAC Championships. Weston assisted head coach Sean Clark in producing seven all-conference performers on the women’s side (program-high) and was pivotal in the men’s success at Navy where they brought home 11 medals at the ECAC season-ending meet. 

Weston, who originally hails from Phelps, N.Y., guided Milligan to a 12th place finish at the NAIA National Championships in 2013 and saw 31 new school records being made during his short tenure as head coach. Prior to his stint in Tennessee, he served as the head diving coach and assistant swimming coach at his high school alma mater, Midlakes HS, from 2010-12.

A standout at Nazareth College, Weston broke four school records and even won the USMS 2-mile Open Water National Championship in 2009. Upon graduation, he stepped in as the conditioning coach for the Golden Flyers.

Weston graduated from Nazareth in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.
