Greg Harvie began rowing in 1992 as a walk-on to the Syracuse University Men’s Varsity Crew program. He quickly picked the sport up, earning a rowing scholarship for his remaining three and half years on the Syracuse program. During his time competing with the Orangemen, Greg raced both nationally and internationally. Upon return to Ohio, Greg began coaching for Dublin Crew, another Columbus based junior rowing program. He spent 12 years with Dublin, 10 of which he was head coach and coach of the junior women. With the birth of his son in 2008, Greg took some time off before returning to coach the GCRA master’s program from 2013 to 2017. He joined the UA Crew coaching staff in the fall of 2017 after years of requests by head coach Andy Wimmer, a former coach under Greg at Dublin.
Greg has lived in the Columbus area for the last 23 years. He lives in Hilliard with his wife Jennifer,
their son Zach, and two dogs, Cheech and Daisy.
