team to a second place finish at the Big East Championships and a semifinal berth at the Dad Vail Regatta. Another highlight came in Fall 2011 when Gruber helped coach UConn’s Varsity Eights boat to a third place finish at the Head of the Charles Regatta. In addition, several UConn student-athletes earned academic and all-region honors over the past four years. Prior to coming to UConn, Gruber served in the same position at Southern Methodist University for four years.

Kevin Gruber, who served the previous four seasons as an assistant at the University of Connecticut, was named the new women’s rowing head coach at the University of Delaware in August, 2012. Gruber, who becomes just the third head coach in school history, replaced Laura Slice, who served the previous nine seasons. Jinny Jang led the team as interim head coach during the 2012 campaign. “We are excited to have Kevin Gruber join the Blue Hen athletics family,” said University of Delaware Interim Director of Athletics and Recreation Services Samantha K. Huge in announcing the hiring. “We were impressed by Kevin’s knowledge and his ability to interact with student-athlete and with his success as both an assistant and head coach over the last decade. We look forward to having him lead our rowers as they continue to rise to the top of the Colonial Athletic Association.”

Gruber served as the head coach of men’s and women’s rowing at the University of Charleston (W. Va.) from 2002-04. At Charleston, he also was a games management coordinator and served as the school’s sports information director.

While a student at UMass, Gruber was a four-year member of the men’s crew club team and earned his undergraduate degree in sport management and journalism. He earned a master’s degree from West Virginia in athletic coaching education. Gruber was also involved with the Riverfront Recapture rowing program in Hartford, Conn., coaching men’s masters rowers, adult-learn-to-row, and youth summer camps.

A 2000 graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Gruber served the last four seasons at Connecticut under head coach Jennifer Sanford-Wendry, including his role as associate head coach in 2011-12. “I’m thrilled to be a Blue Hen,” said Gruber. “It was clear to me throughout the interview process that Delaware would be a great fit for me and I’m happy that the search committee felt the same way. I’m looking forward to working with the student-athletes and building on UD’s tradition of Dad Vail and CAA success under Coach Kukla and Coach Slice.” Connecticut finished fifth as a team at the Big East Championships each of the last three seasons and enjoyed success at the prestigious Dad Vail Regatta. In 2009, Gruber coached UConn’s Second Varsity Eight to a fifth placed finish at Dad Vail and a fourth place finish at the Big East Championships. In both 2010 and 2011, UConn’s Second Varsity Eights crew advanced to the Dad Vail semifinals with the 2011 crew also finishing fifth at both the Big East Championships and the Knecht Cup Regatta.

COLONIAL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION With nearly three decades of success athletically and academically, the Colonial Athletic Association has built a reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences. The CAA encompasses many of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Charleston, S.C. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 13 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 13 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 23 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2012-13, more than 1,900 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes received the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 23 teams in 15 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2013. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes several of the nation’s top media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA conducts championships in 22 sports. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross counCAA Commissioner try, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis Tom Yeager and track & field. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 2012-13, 27 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 43 student-athletes received All-America honors in 14 different sports. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with two teams – George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011) – advancing to the NCAA Final Four over the past seven years. CAA teams have combined to win 41 games in postseason play since 2006, including 14 victories in the NCAA Tournament. The CAA has posted at least one NCAA Tournament win in six of the past eight years, including the last four in a row. The conference has seen five or more teams reach postseason play in four of the last five seasons. In women’s basketball, 2013 CAA champion Delaware defeated West Virginia and North Carolina to become the 12th CAA team to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Behind the play of Honda Award winner Elena Delle Donne, the Blue Hens finished the season ranked #13 in the final USA Today Coaches Top 25 poll. Drexel captured the WNIT championship with a 46-43 victory over Utah and James Madison reached the quarterfinals of the WNIT. CAA teams have gone 20-9 in postseason play over the past two years. The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981. Three men’s soccer teams earned NCAA Tournament berths last season and each current member of the conference has reached the NCAA Tournament since 2006. In softball, Hofstra reached the NCAA Super Regionals in 2012 and the CAA placed two teams (Hofstra and James Madison) in the NCAA’s for the first time last season. At least two women’s soccer teams have reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament three times in the past six seasons. William & Mary’s men’s cross country squad has made the NCAA Championship in 12 of the past 14 years and the women’s team had two runners (Elaina Balouris and Emily Stites) earn All-America honors in 2012. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. The CAA sent three teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in 2013 and has had at least 11 players selected in nine of the last 11 Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also had individuals earn All-America honors in women’s lacrosse, track and field and swimming & diving last season and had players nationally ranked in tennis and golf. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university education and life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs, visiting faculty programs and a recent partnership with NBC Learn to provide educational videos to over 8,500 public schools across the United States. CAA schools are also very active in community service projects. The CAA Blood Challenge, which is held each fall, has raised more than 36,000 units of blood over the past 11 years. The first-ever CAA Food Drive Challenge last winter resulted in over 9,500 pounds of donated food. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has

Tim McDonnell guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when two of its current members- James Madison University and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, George Mason University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new conference. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Old Dominion University joined the CAA in 1991 and was followed by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference in 2005 and the College of Charleston began its first year as a CAA member on July 1, 2013. Elon University will join the conference beginning in 2014-15.
