Rohan Taylor is the State Head Coach for swimming in Victoria and Tasmania.[1] He was the performance coach of the Nunawading Swimming Club based in Melbourne, Australia. He has previously coached the Shoalhaven Academy, Saddleback Valley Aquatics, Laguna Hills High School and Irvine Novaquatics. In September 2008 it was announced that he has been hired by the Nunawading Swimming Club as its new High Performance coach.[2]

In December 2005, he was officially rebuked by the hierarchy of Swimming Australia for organizing a training camp for his swimmers with the Royal Australian Navy in which mock military executions were held.[3]

In 2007, Leisel Jones, who had won the 100 m and 200 m breaststroke at both the 2005 and 2007 World Championships, relocated to Melbourne for family reasons and began swimming under Taylor. She won the 100 m event at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
