Kansas rowing coach Rob Catloth has announced his retirement, effective June 30. Catloth spent 22 years with the program, starting with the Jayhawks’ first season in 1995.
“After more than two decades I just feel that now is the right time to step away,” Catloth said in a KU release. “I have been blessed and privileged to coach many terrific student-athletes.”
Associate head coach Carrie Cook-Callen will serve as the team’s interim coach.
Catloth, who is from Lawrence, graduated from KU in 1985.
“Rob brought our rowing program from its inception to where it is now,” KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger said in the release. “Today the program annually provides more than 70 female student-athletes the opportunity to compete on the Division I level. We thank Rob and wish him all the best.”
