Todd Turner makes the call on this one, and it serves notice that nothing but West Coat Championships are tolerated at UW as far as Women's Crew is concerned. Considering the fact that UW dominated the sport for years makes it a good move at this point as the program has slipped toward mediocrity.
The University of Washington has fired head women's rowing coach Eleanor McElvaine, with one year remaining on her contract. "The women's rowing program at Washington has a history of great success on a national level," athletic director Todd Turner said in a statement announcing the firing on Wednesday. "Being among the country's top programs presents a number of challenges, not the least of which is maintaining our ability to compete for national championships."
Will Todd be that quick to pull the trigger in year four of Ty if needed?
