George Washington Water Polo Coach Scott Reed Will Not Return to the Program
Current Assistant Coach Adam Foley to Serve as Interim Head Coach
WASHINGTON - The George Washington University Department of Athletics and Recreation announced today that Head Men's and Women's Water Polo Coach Scott Reed will not return to the program. Assistant Coach Adam Foley will serve as Interim Head Coach moving forward.
"We want to thank Scott for his service to GW Athletics since 1999 when he first helmed our men's water polo program," said Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero. "He also became our first ever women's water polo coach in 2000, and he worked hard with both programs. We wish him the best as we look forward to the future for GW water polo."
Reed compiled a record of 167-280 (.374) in 16 seasons with the men's water polo team, including a 12-80 (.130) mark in the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Southern Division. Reed guided the women's water polo team to a 173-240 (.419) mark in 15 seasons, including a 33-60 (.355) mark in the CWPA Southern.
He was named CWPA Southern Division Women's Coach of the Year in 2003 when the Colonial women won a program-record 18 games, and he earned the same honor on the men's side in 2007. Reed enjoyed two winning seasons with the GW men's water polo team, including a 16-15 season in 2013 which marked the program's most ever wins in a season under Reed.
Assistant Coach Adam Foley will assume the role of Interim Head Coach for both GW programs, after joining GW water polo in August. Prior to coming to GW, Foley served for one year as an assistant coach at CWPA Southern Division rival Johns Hopkins, where he helped guide the Blue Jays to a 21-10 record in 2013. Foley also spent two years with the Trinidad and Tobago national team and was head coach of the MIT men's varsity team and women's collegiate club squad from 2007-11, where he won a pair of CWPA Division III Eastern Championship titles with the men's program in 2007 and 2010.
