Steve McCarthy Named Assistant Men’s Rowing Coach
Former Dartmouth Assistant joins Colonials
McCarthy joins the Colonials after spending the summer of 2017 working with the US Rowing Under-18 CanAmMex team, winning 8+ and 2- at the CanAmMex Regatta. He spent the greater part of last year working with the Dartmouth Lightweights. At Dartmouth, McCarthy coached the 2v, 3v, and 4v eights to outplace their seeding at Eastern Sprints.
“I’m excited to have Stephen on board,” said head coach Mark Davis. “He brings a wealth of experience at the collegiate and junior level. I'm looking forward to working with him.”
Before Dartmouth, McCarthy worked for the Three Rivers Rowing Association as both the head coach of the junior rowers and the head development coach, roles he had held since August 2014. His responsibilities included guiding prospective student-athletes through the college searching and recruiting process, developing training programs, planning travel logistics and organizing equipment.
During this time, McCarthy also served as the high-performance coach for the Men's Junior National team from June 2012 through March 2016. While there, he coached the CanAmMex team to a win in the 8+ at the 2015 CanAmMex Regatta in Mexico City, and at Club Nationals in 2013 and 2014, led the high performance group to medal finishes in the Junior 8+ and Intermediate 8+.
In addition to his collegiate rowing experience, McCarthy served as assistant coach at Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria, Virginia (2011-13), and prior to that was the US Rowing Junior National Development Team assistant coach in Pittsburgh (2009-10).
A graduate of Northeastern with a degree in political science with minors in history and business, McCarthy rowed in the first varsity throughout his four-year tenure.
