Justin Stangel will take over the men’s crew program as the sixth head coach in school history. He will begin his official appointment on July 12.
“I am thrilled to announce the appointment of Justin Stangel as our head men’s crew coach,” said Associate Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Susan Bassett ’79. “Justin emerged from a competitive national search as the ideal candidate to take the reins. His experience as a rower at Syracuse, Oxford and as a national team member charted the course for his passion for the sport. He has gained valuable experience coaching on the Division I level, the high school level and at Liberty League member Hobart College. Justin has a proven track record in recruiting and articulated a clear path for success for the Bombers. I am confident that Coach Stangel will build on the tradition of success established in IC men's crew. We welcome him to the Bomber family and the Ithaca College community.”
Stangel comes to South Hill after spending the 2022 season as the associate head coach at Hobart College in Geneva, New York. This past spring, Stangel helped guide the Statesmen to their 16th straight Liberty League championship.
