Kendall Mulligan was announced the head coach of Franklin & Marshall rowing in April 2015 after joining the staff as the interim head coach in 2014.
A total of 25 rowers earned All-MARC honors under Mulligan, while 34 landed on the Academic All-MARC list. Mulligan also coached just the second All-American in the history of the program when Teresa Chappell '18 was named to the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) Pocock All-America Second Team in 2016.
The women’s team has been consistently ranked or received votes in the USRowing/Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) National Poll, reaching as high as No. 15 in the country during the 2017 season. Mulligan has elevated the Diplomats as a legitimate contender for a Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference (MARC) Championship as F&M placed as high as second in both 2016 and 2017.
The men’s side has also seen its share of success under Mulligan, including a fourth-place showing out of 10 teams at the 2018 MARC’s - the best finish since the adoption of the event's current format in 2016.
Mulligan has also served as a United States Women's Junior National Team Development Camp Assistant Coach in New London, Conn. during the summer of 2017.
A four-year competitor at Washington College, Mulligan was a captain and received two-time honors as a (MARC) Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference All-Conference rower during her junior and senior seasons. As a sophomore, she was named a Student-Athlete Mentor to the rowing team. She led her team sitting stroke seat during her junior year and seven-seat during her senior year.
Mulligan also received three Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference All-Academic Conference Honors and three (CRCA) College Rowing Coaches Association National Scholar Athlete Honors.
During her time at Washington, the team garnered two conference championships in 2009 and 2011 and one trip to the NCAA National Championship Regatta.
She spent the last three years coaching the novice girls and assisting the varsity team at the Peddie School in Hightstown, N.J.
