Director of Staff & Player Development
Head Coach, 7 seasons
62-50 overall (24-16 conference record, 2-2 NCAA record)
Nick Myers recently completed his seventh year as the head men’s lacrosse coach at The Ohio State University. He took over the program July 10, 2008, after three seasons as the top assistant for the Buckeyes. On the international stage, Myers will serve as head coach for Team USA at the 2016 FIL World Under-19 Championships.
In his first seven years as the Buckeyes’ head coach, Myers has posted a 62-50 ledger overall and a 24-16 conference record, with the squad earning a berth each year a conference tournament was held. He led the Buckeyes to the first postseason and Creator’s Trophy titles in program history, a share of a league regular-season title, a spot in the NCAA quarterfinals twice (2013, ‘15) and to a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament en route to the first NCAA tournament game at home.
In 2015, Myers led the Buckeyes to the inaugural Big Ten Tournament championship game and an at-large spot in the NCAA Tournament. In the first round of the NCAA tourney, the Buckeyes went on the road and defeated two-time defending champion Duke before falling in the quarterfinals to eventual national champion Denver. During the season, the Buckeyes claimed the Creator’s Trophy with road wins over Penn State and Michigan and topped three of the NCAA semifinalists.
Under his tutelage, members of the program have garnered 14 USILA All-America honors, 39 all-conference nods and six conference player of the year accolades. Over the past seven years, members of the Ohio State team have earned 117 Academic All-Big Ten accolades and 169 Ohio State Scholar-Athlete nods, along with the first eight USILA Scholar All-American selections in program history.
