Former UNCW diving standout Beau Bunn enters his second year with the Seahawks after returning to the program for the 2012-13 season. Bunn was an assistant coach at Duke prior to his return.

Bunn returns to the Port City where he graduated from UNCW in 1999. He compiled a decorated career with the Seahawks that saw him arrive as a walk-on and earn Colonial Athletic Association Diver-of-the-Year honors twice. Bunn was the Seahawks' top diver all four seasons he competed.

In his first season with the Seahawks, sophomore Chase Seymour finished eighth in the 1-meter dive at the CAA Championships.

As a sophomore he earned his first CAA Diver-of-the-Year honor, taking second in the 1-meter and winning the 3-meter board. As a junior he swept both events en route to Diver-of-the-Year honors for the second consecutive year.

Prior to Duke, Bunn coached in numerous summer leagues and was the head diving coach for Wake County schools in 2007
