Greg Myhr, GW’s men’s rowing coach for the past four years, has accepted the head coaching position at the University of Pennsylvania, GW’s athletic department announced this week.

A-10 offices move to Virginia
The Atlantic 10 offices will be moved to Newport News, Va. this fall, the conference announced earlier this month.
The shift comes after spending the last 14 years in Philadelphia, which is home to three of the conference’s 14 member schools. GW Director of Athletics Jack Kvancz said the move was financially motivated.
Kvancz also said that he is excited for the conference to be based in a city where it can garner more attention without competing with local professional sports franchises.
