His last season in Oklahoma City  had multiple team best performances, highlighted by finishing 13th at the Head of the Charles in the Youth Eights, and 2nd at Youth Nationals in the Four.

Brevick began rowing in 2002 at Washington State University, and began coaching at WSU as a volunteer assistant in 2007. After working in other capacities stateside and overseas for three years, he returned to WSU to coach the Novice Men for the 2011-2012 season.
