After rowing throughout college, Jeff launched his coaching career, bringing a novice team to gold at the Head of the Hooch his first year.

In addition to his 33 years at Green Lake, Ed has coached the women’s team at Western Washington University, the Junior Men’s National team, and continues to teach USRowing coaching courses. Ed remains connected to rowing as Vespoli’s newest West Coast rep.
