After leading the U.S. U19 team to a thrilling gold medal in 2016, Nick Myers is back for another stint leading the USA. After two postponements, Myers will be the head coach for the U.S. U21 team at the 2022 World Lacrosse Men's U19 World Championship in Limerick, Ireland.
As the head coach at Ohio State, Myers has posted a 120-89 ledger following the 2022 season. Ohio State’s ascension culminated with a trip to the 2017 Final Four and national championship game. Myers also has the program's first postseason title on his resume (2013 ECAC Tournament championship), a spot in the NCAA quarterfinals three times (2013, ’15, ‘17) and a No. 3 seed in the 2013 and 2017 NCAA Tournaments. In 2018, he was voted by his peers as the co-Big Ten Coach of the Year.
As the top assistant under Joe Breschi at Ohio State from 2006-08, Myers served as the offensive coordinator for the Buckeyes, oversaw recruiting and handled other aspects of the day-to-day operation of the men’s lacrosse program.
Myers began his coaching career as the volunteer coach for the Buckeyes for two seasons (2002, ’03) and was on the Buckeye staff when the squad earned a spot in the NCAA tournament in 2003, the first appearance in program history, and shared the GWLL title.
He spent the 2004 and ’05 campaigns as the top assistant coach at Butler before rejoining the Buckeye staff in 2006.
Myers played for Springfield College in Massachusetts, earning Division III All-America honors in 2001. He was a three-time All-NEWMAC selection and was the 2000 conference player of the year.
