Head Coach Gregg Hartsuff (24th Season)

Gregg Hartsuff begins his 25th season with the University of Michigan Men’s Rowing Team, and his 24th as the Head Coach. Under Hartsuff, the Wolverines have been the most successful collegiate club rowing team since 1994, making him the all-time winning club coach in the history of college rowing. During that time the Michigan Varsity 8 has had the highest finish at the IRA of any club team each year except two, and has been in the petite final in 5 of the 10 years the Wolverines were allowed to compete in the IRA. Michigan Crews coached by Hartsuff have won over 80 Dad Vail and ECAC medals, with 30 of them being gold. He is only one of two coaches to ever win the Dad Vail and ECAC Varsity 8 titles in the same year (2005), and has won the second most varsity eight titles in the history of the Dad Vail (5). Additionally, Michigan has won two IRA medals, and has the highest finish of a club team in an eights event at the IRA. The 2002 Freshmen 8 won the silver medal. His Michigan teams have won numerous medals at the American Collegiate Rowing Association National Championship every year and has always won the men's team point trophy. In all the Michigan men have won 45 medals at the national championship, more than double the next closest team.

Hartsuff was instrumental in the formation of ACRA in 2007. Facing the exclusion of clubs from the IRA due to the political environment at the time, Hartsuff lead an effort to unite club coaches of the day to form the American Collegiate Rowing Association. As the first President of ACRA he saw ACRA through the forming of bylaws, rules, and a philosophy that saw ACRA grow from a fledgling organization to a national championship that had over 1500 participants and 60 organization attend after his presidency ended in 2013.

Internationally, while at Michigan Hartsuff has coached three future Olympians, and through camps and other teams coached a few dozen others. He was on the Senior Worlds team as a coach (men's single sculls) in Milan, Italy in 2003. In 2015 he was the head coach of the World University Games team for the USA and the men’s eight that won the gold medal, the first time the USA has won that event. Hartsuff has coached at numerous national team camps and development camps.

Hartsuff is a lifelong resident of Michigan and the Ann Arbor area, having grown up in Gregory, attended Stockbridge High School ('86), Grand Valley State ('90) and currently resides in Chelsea with his wife Tricia Miranda-Hartsuff, and has three sons named Liam, Zander, and Bram.
