Record-setting performances, conference champions, All-Americans and national qualifiers have become the standard under Mojock. Over his career, Mojock has coached 301 individual/relay all-conference selections and eight national qualifiers who earned 17 All-American honors.
Mojock led the Purple Raiders to back-to-back Ohio Athletic Conference women's swimming and diving titles in 2015 and 2016 -- the first conference team titles in school history -- along with seven second place finishes.
The efforts by he and his staff have been recognized by their peers as they have won OAC Coaching Staff of the Year honors three times (2010, 2012, 2015). Mojock has coached four OAC Women's Swimmers of the Year (Courtney Gabel in 2013 and Dana Lautenschleger in 2016, 2017 and 2018) and a two-time OAC Women's Diver of the Year (Mary Vallinger in 2008 and 2009)

His coaching style can be best described as technique first. “A solid foundation of stroke technique combined with a strong swimming IQ will unlock the potential of swimmers at every level.”
