Crew adds new coach before new season

With the season just a few weeks away, the crew team has added a new member to its coaching staff.

Temple crew alum, Patrick Curran, will join the program as its new graduate assistant. Curran will be working with the novice group, rowers who have just joined the team, as he looks to fine tune their rowing skills.

Curran rowed with the program from 2006-10 with the varsity eight boat throughout his four-year collegiate career. While he did not win the Dad Vail Regatta during his athletic tenure, Curran rowed in the boat that won the Knecht Cup and Murray Cup among others.

Four years later, Curran said he returns to Temple in hopes of getting the program “back on top where it usually was.”

While working out with the team, Curran will be studying physical therapy.
