Stephen Frazier Wong Stepping Down from Role as Rowing Head Coach

CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson Director of Athletics Graham Neff announced that Stephen Frazier Wong is stepping down from his role as Rowing Head Coach. Frazier Wong spent ten seasons guiding the Rowing program. The 2024 season came to a close at the ACC Championship race this past weekend where the Tigers finished sixth. 

“I am thankful for Stephen and his family for their commitment and service to Clemson Athletics for the past ten years,” said Neff. “Our Rowing program has a proud history and we have high expectations for its continued growth. We will begin a national search immediately.”

“My family and I thank Clemson Athletics for the incredible honor to be able to coach this program,” said Frazier Wong. “I am appreciative to Graham Neff, Stephanie Ellison-Johnson, and the hundreds of student-athletes we’ve had the opportunity to serve, and I am looking forward to following the program in the future.”

Frazier Wong led Clemson to a fourth-place finish in the ACC three times, and coached a trio of All-Americans in Rachel Twitty (2022), Cate Schreiber (2021) and Isla McRae (2018). 

The Clemson Rowing program has excelled in the classroom, as they have been above a 3.0 in 27 straight semesters and recorded their 50th 3.0 or better GPA in 51 total semesters since joining in the fall of 1998.
