Aug. 25, 2009
WASHINGTON, DC - Former George Washington head men's rowing coach Greg Myhr has accepted the Men's Heavyweight Rowing Head Coach position at University of Pennsylvania.
Myhr spent four years as the head coach at George Washington as the Colonials took ninth place at the 2009 Eastern Sprints, a five-place jump from 2008 which earned the Colonials an automatic bid into the IRA Championships. GW then took 15th at IRAs and finished with the No. 15 standing in the national Ten Eyck team standings. In addition, the varsity won five dual races against EARC competitors.
Under Myhr's direction, George Washington was named the second-most improved program in the country at the 2007 IRA Championships, and was the third-most improved team at the 2009 Championships.
Myhr had come to George Washington from cross-town Georgetown University where he served as the freshman heavyweight coach.
