Northeastern University and the athletic department are proud to announce a fundraising campaign to create the Ernie Arlett Endowed Men’s Rowing Coach Fund.

The name that will be attached to this position, Ernie Arlett, is one that is synonymous with rowing at Northeastern University.  Upon the founding of the program in 1964 Ernie Arlett, after a distinguished career coaching at Harvard, was named the first rowing coach at Northeastern for 1965 season.  Ernie led the program until 1977.

Coach Arlett’s legendary coaching career at Northeastern spanned 12 seasons and produced numerous championships and honors.  Arlett worked to establish a foundation for the program that has had continued success both athletically and academically for 54 years and counting.
