A 1990 graduate of the University of Connecticut, Steven R. Ouellette has coached rowing for over ten years. After being introduced to rowing in college, stroking the junior varsity eight, he returned to coach both the men and women's club at UConn for four years. During that time the popularity of the club grew to over 50 athletes and Ouellette succeeded in lobbying to raise the women's program to Division I varsity status. In 2000, Ouellette came to Brown to assist under then head coach Scott Roop and assistant coach Paul Cooke. Subsequently assisting Mathew Carlson and now Luke McGee, Ouellette has helped several second freshman and third varsity boats to medal success at the Eastern Sprints and IRA regatta. Ouellette brings his experience to improve the many novices that continue to grow and improve the overall quality and success of the team. Ouellette resides in Connecticut where he also owns and manages a classic car company. An avid boater, he can often be found exploring Narragansett Bay and the surrounding New England waters.
