Georgetown University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed introduced Luke Agnini as the men's rowing head coach on Monday, July 21, 2014.

Agnini comes to the Hilltop after serving as the associate head men's rowing coach at the University of California for the last six years.

Agnini joined Cal's coaching staff in 2007. He guided one of the Bears' 8+ entries in the Henley Royal Regatta to a victory in the Ladies Plate earlier this month.

While at Cal, Agnini helped guide them to top-four team finishes in the Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) National Championships between 2009-12 (second in 2009, first in 2010, third in 2011 and fourth in 2012). Most recently, he served as the head freshman coach and guided the squad to a second-place finish in 2014 and a third-place showing in 2013.

Prior to Cal, Agnini rowed with the Pennsylvania Athletic Club, winning four national championships for Penn AC. He held a number of positions in the Philadelphia, Pa., area, including the role of assistant director for the masters rowing association.

Agnini has coached for the United States on numerous occasions in the past five years. Most recently, in 2011, he coached the heavyweight 4- to a sixth-place finish and was an assistant for the heavyweight eight (gold medal, world record time) at U-23 World Championships in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In 2010, he led the lightweight 4- to a bronze medal, the first-ever medal for the United States in that event, and also coached the heavyweight 4- to a seventh-place finish, serving as an assistant coach for heavyweight eight that got silver at U-23 World Championships in Belarus. In 2009, he coached the lightweight 4- to eighth place at U-23 World Championships in Prague. He coached the U.S. lightweight 4- to an eighth-place finish at the U-23 World Championships in Brandenberg, Germany, in July of 2008.

While coaching at Penn AC from May - Sept. 2007, Agnini guided a U.S. coxed pair from Penn AC that reached the 2007 World Championships, winning the B final to claim seventh place overall. In addition, he has also coached at St. Joseph's Preparatory School in Philadelphia in the springs of 2004 and 2005.

A product of Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio, Agnini graduated in 2002 with degrees in psychology and history. He competed at the IRA Regatta while rowing at Marietta. He has a wife, Katharine, and son, Henry.
