Joshua Gautreau finished his fourth season with the Cavaliers in 2015 and third as assistant coach after being promoted from graduate assistant. Gautreau oversees the novice and development squads as well as work directly with varsity crews, and is the primary recruiter for international athletes as well as the Mid-Atlantic, Southern, and Pacific Northwest regions.
Last year, Gautreau mentored the Varsity Four to the NCAA Championship in one of the closest races ever contested at the national regatta.
In 2014, Gautreau acted as boat coach for the Second Varsity Eight in the lead up to the NCAA Championships, helping the Cavaliers to a third-place finish. During the regular season, Gautreau mentored the Third Varsity Eight to an ACC Championship to cap off an undefeated season. In 2013, Gautreau guided the Novice Eight to the ACC Championship and had novices challenging for NCAA positions by the end of the spring season.
In his first season at Virginia as graduate assistant coach, Gautreau helped lead the Novice Eight to an undefeated spring season, spanning 10 races. The Novice Eight captured its race at the ACC Championships to secure crucial points towards the Cavaliers' team title.
After rowing for Syracuse from 2002-06, Gautreau won the lightweight fours at the Head of the Charles, the Canadian Henley and is a two-time US Rowing National Champion. He competed for the US National Team at the 2011 Pan American Games, where he finished seventh with the lightweight fours.
Gautreau graduated from Syracuse with a bachelor's degree in physics in December 2005 and is currently pursuing a master's degree from UVa in exercise physiology.
Gautreau resides in Charlottesville with his wife, Catherine, and their son, Boden, who was born in January 2015.
