The longtime College of the Holy Cross women’s rowing coach is retiring in the wake of a January crash that killed one student-athlete.

The college announced Friday that director of rowing and head women’s rowing coach Patrick Diggins, who was driving the team van when it crashed in Florida, is retiring after 34 years at the school in Worcester, Mass.

"I thank Patrick for his years of dedication and service to the College," Holy Cross Director of Athletics Marcus Blossom said in the school’s press release, which noted that Jim Barr will serve as interim head coach when the season begins April 4. "I wish him luck as he steps into this new chapter."
