McKeever is the women's coach at California, where she oversees Missy Franklin. McKeever became the first woman to serve as head coach of the U.S. team at an Olympics in 2012. She was an assistant on two Olympic teams and at five world championships.

The Pan Pac meet will be Aug. 21-25 in Gold Coast, Australia. The meet is held every two years featuring the U.S., Australia, Canada and Japan.
