The medal-free performance of the U.S. men in Rio has claimed its first casualty on the coaching side. In a tersely-worded statement on March 8, USRowing announced that men’s eight coach Luke McGee had stepped down and that a search was starting for a new senior men’s coach. Bryan Volpenhein, who guided the men’s four to a seventh-place finish in Brazil, remains employed with the national federation. “Luke has brought tremendous enthusiasm and dedication to his time with the men, and we wish him the best going forward,” said USRowing High Performance Director Matt Imes in an announcement.
