Written by Matt Franzblau    Tuesday, 21 August 2012 16:33   

CORVALLIS, Ore. –The Oregon State women’s rowing team is proud to announce the hiring of Troy Gann as the team’s new rigger/boatman. He will replace Erik Dresser who was in the same position for the past four years. In his new position, Gann will be responsible for maintaining the team's equipment and boathouse as well as the transportation of boats and equipment to events.

Although this position is a first for the OSU alum he is no stranger to the team, having served as a volunteer assistant coach from 2004-06 and in the same capacity with the men's team from 2001-03. As an undergraduate, Gann rowed on the OSU varsity men's team and turned to coaching after an injury his sophomore year. He graduated from Oregon State with a bachelor’s in business in 2003. In between his stints on the docks in Corvallis, Gann was an assistant coach for the Yale Heavyweight rowing team from 2003-04.

“Troy is a great hire for Oregon State rowing,” said women’s head coach Emily Ford. “Not only is he well-versed in all things mechanical, he has a passion for the sport and for the Oregon State program.  I am sure that the boathouse will run very smoothly as a result of Troy’s efforts and we are looking forward to having him on board.” 

Gann is a native of Eugene, Ore., but comes to the coast from the bright lights of the Big Apple, where we was working in the registrar’s office at Pace University. Before getting back into higher education and coaching, he worked in the business world was employed by a large insurance company from 2006-11.

Gann was not only a rower collegiately, but played varsity golf at Southern Oregon Community College. He now lives back in Corvallis with wife Amanda, who is also an OSU graduate.
