A coach with a lot of experience and many connections within US rowing. Very organized and has a working program that will make you fitter but lacks in the actual coaching department. Rather than hearing from him how he wants his rowers to row and dialing in the specific technical aspects of the stroke, he will frequently pose rhetorical questions like “how are we going to find the front-end”, and “how do we maintain pressure throughout the stroke”. This approach might work for other teams but definitely not for a college team that brings in talented rowers from all over the world with different approaches to the stroke. Until he unifies his crews around one approach to the stroke he will have to settle with disjointed crews of world-class rowers and missing out on grand finals at the IRAs.

Had amazing gains and improvements after being coached by Coach Hughes. Not only did I achieve personal best on the erg, but he made it really cool everyday at practice. He made enjoy rowing.
