Marko Djordjevic was named the head coach of the University of California San Diego men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs on July 10, 2019.

Djordjevic spent five seasons as the top assistant coach of the Triton teams, after being named to the post in July of 2014. He aided the Tritons in a volunteer capacity during the 2013-14 season, and is thus in his seventh year on the Canyonview Aquatic Center deck. Djordjevic added the title of recruiting coordinator ahead of the 2017-18 campaign, and was elevated to associate head coach in June of 2018.

Since Djordjevic's arrival, the Triton men and women both won five-consecutive titles at the Pacific Collegiate Swimming and Diving Conference (PCSC) championships. UC San Diego then successfully transitioned to the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF), made up entirely of NCAA Division I opposition, during the fall of 2018.

Also under Djordjevic's tutelage since 2013, UC San Diego has combined to post six top-seven team finishes at the NCAA Division II Championships, with most recently a sixth-place effort for the women in Indianapolis in 2019. In Djordjevic's six seasons with UC San Diego, Tritons have compiled two individual national champions, 161 All-America distinctions, 148 All-America honorable mentions, 80 PCSC individual champions, 31 PCSC relay titles, and no fewer than 63 school-record swims.

Djordjevic has prior coaching experience at San Diego club programs North Coast Aquatics and Pacific Swim, as well as having held numerous posts at the international level, primarily for his native Serbia. He is a 2007 graduate of Serbia's University of Novi Sad.
