Andrew Derrick has been named head women’s rowing coach at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington.
Derrick will make the move to Spokane after spending four seasons as the head women’s rowing coach at Seattle Pacific University (SPU), a private university in Seattle, Washington.
“I am extremely excited to be given the opportunity to join the Gonzaga family,” Derrick said. “I was fortunate to work with and get to coach some amazing people at Seattle Pacific, so leaving them is extremely difficult.
“However, when given the opportunity to be a part of such a highly successful department with impressive momentum connected to such a respected university, my wife and I knew it was the right decision for our family.”
Before SPU, Derrick spent six years coaching at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, Oklahoma, where he helped the Bronchos earn their first NCAA bid in 2011.
Derrick graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor’s degree in history and earned his Masters of Education in intercollegiate athletic leadership in 2008.
