Head Coach & Director of Rowing
Walker Ferris has been head coach of the men's team at UGA since 2017. This is his first year as director of both men's and women's rowing. Walker is from Savannah, Georgia, where he rowed for the Savannah Country Day School from 2007-2011. He then attended the University of Georgia, where he rowed from 2011-2015, and he subsequently coached high school rowing in Jacksonville, FL from 2015-2017. He spends his summers working with the USRowing Junior National Team ODP groups, and he loves a good macaroni and cheese.
Nathan Lantz is from Atlanta, Georgia. He attended the University of Georgia, where he rowed from 2005 to 2009. Nathan has been coaching at UGA since 2009, and he has experience coaching both the men's and women's teams. He considers himself "the funny coach" (Walker disagrees).
