Mike Teti - Named the U.S. head men’s coach after the 1996 Olympic Games, coaching the lightweight men’s four to a bronze medal. In the 2000 Olympic Games, all of his sweep boats qualified for the finals, with the men’s pair capturing the silver medal.
Teti is the only men’s eight coach in U.S. history to win three consecutive world championship titles (1997-99), a feat that earned him three consecutive US Rowing National Coach of the Year honours. At the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Teti directed the men’s eight, stroked by Volpenhein, to a world record in its heat and an eventual Gold medal, marking the first time the United States captured the men’s eight since 1964. He went on to coach the U.S. men’s eight to a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, before joining the coaching staff at the University of California. He returned to the Olympic stage in 2012 to coach the U.S. men's eight in London. U.S. national team crews produced 28 total medals under Teti’s guidance.
As a rower, Teti was a 12-time national team member and three-time Olympian. From 1977-93, he won 24 national titles, a silver medal at the 1979 Pan American Games in the four, and bronze and gold in the eight at the World Rowing Championships (1985 and 1987). He also won bronze in the eight at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul.
Teti received the US Rowing Medal in 2008, the highest honour that the organization can bestow. In 2010, he was inducted into the National Rowing Hall of Fame as the coach of the gold medal-winning 2004 men’s eight, becoming one of only a few people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a coach and an athlete.
