NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The final pieces to the coaching staff for the University of Notre Dame rowing program were put into place recently, as Marnie Stahl earned a promotion to associate head coach, while Teresa Logemann joined the Irish as the new assistant coach.
“Marnie has done a phenomenal job since she arrived at Notre Dame and there was no question that she deserved to be the new associate head coach,” said Irish head coach Martin Stone.
“We felt Teresa was the best candidate to help us in several specific areas. In speaking with people she’s worked with, she connects well with student-athletes and connected well with her teammates while at Minnesota.”
Entering her 11th year under the Golden Dome, Stahl has helped lead the Irish to unprecedented success. Since the Toledo, Ohio native stepped foot on campus in the fall of 2005, Notre Dame has qualified for six NCAA Championships. Highlighting the six trips is a pair of ninth-place finishes in 2006 and 2014.
Stahl has spent the last three years coaching the third varsity eight and the second and third varsity four and added the first varsity four in 2014-15. She also oversees Notre Dame’s First-Years program, which is one of the most integrated novice programs in the country.
Replacing new Navy head coach Joe Schlosberg as the Irish associate head coach, Stahl had previously teamed with Schlosberg to earn Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) South Region Assistant Coaching Staff of the Year honors in 2014 before becoming a finalist for the CRCA National Assistant Coaching Staff of the Year award.
While the team was on its way to winning eight BIG EAST Championships from 2006-2013, Stone, Schlosberg and Stahl earned six BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year trophies.
“I appreciate the opportunity that Martin (Stone) has given me to continue to develop as a coach at a high level here at Notre Dame,” said Stahl. “I look forward to this new role to continue to educate, empower and challenge our student-athletes to reach our best team performance on the water and in the classroom.”
Logemann, meanwhile, comes to the Irish from her alma mater, the University of Minnesota, where she rowed for four years before serving on the coaching staff for three and a half years.
“I am grateful to Coach Stone for the opportunity of a lifetime,” said Logemann. “There is no doubt that Notre Dame is a special place, and I am thrilled to grow the Fighting Irish family.”
As an assistant at Minnesota, Logemann coached the first varsity four boat at the Big Ten Championships and served as the program’s recruiting coordinator.
Logemann graduated from Minnesota in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in architecture with a minor in French. She later earned a Master of Education in applied kinesiology & sports management in December 2014.
As a Golden Gopher student-athlete, Logemann served as a team captain and earned the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award after beginning her career as a freshman walk on.
The Irish open their spring 2016 slate in Oak Ridge, Tennessee at the Cardinal/Oak Ridge Invitational March 12-13.
