Former All-American Kelsey Rowell enters her first season as an assistant coach.

“Kelsey is a much-needed addition to our coaching staff and to the Oregon team,” said Mulkey. “Having her on the sidelines will be a fantastic asset to the team. She has been a part of this program since its inaugural year, bringing a wealth of knowledge from the student-athlete perspective, and this will be invaluable in our recruiting efforts and direction for the program.”

Rowell, a former Duck standout, joins the coaching staff as a second assistant coach. Rowell was a member of the acrobatics and tumbling team from 2009-2012, leading the Ducks to NCATA National Championships in 2011 and 2012. She earned several individual national titles, namely in the tumbling events, and was honored as an NCATA All-American as a senior.

Rowell (rhymes with towel) was born in Salem, Ore., and has lived in several parts of the country. She has 12 years of all-around experience in gymnastics, competing nationally in Oregon, California and Texas before joining Mulkey's squad at Oregon in 2009. Prior to competing collegiately, she was a Level IX Western National Qualifier in 2001, and a Level 10 National Qualifier in 2002 and 2003. She holds regional championship titles on floor, beam and vault.

The Ducks have put themselves on the map as a national powerhouse after claiming the national title three years in a row. Kelsey will join the staff as an overall expert in the field with tremendous collegiate experience.

After graduating from Oregon in 2012 with a degree in sociology, Rowell worked at Vircon Inc., in Portland, Ore., as a consultant relations manager in the human resources department. She is planning to pursue her graduate degree in the fall of 2014.
