Ohio State has given men’s lacrosse coach Nick Myers a five-year contract extension, the school announced Tuesday.
Myers most recently led the Buckeyes to an appearance in the national championship, where they lost to Big Ten foe Maryland. He has a 85-63 record at the helm in Columbus and has taken his team to three NCAA Quarterfinals.
“We are excited to extend Coach Myers’ contract here at Ohio State,” said Oman. “His focus on student athlete development in all facets of their life is an exemplar for others to follow. He has made a tremendous impact on the Ohio State lacrosse program, but, more importantly, the young men he mentors during their time at Ohio State.”
Myers first joined Ohio State’s staff in 2002 as a volunteer assistant. He then went to Butler for two seasons in 2004 and 2005, and returned to Columbus in as an assistant. He claimed the head coach job after Joe Breschi left for the same title at North Carolina.
“I’m grateful to Gene Smith and Janine Oman for allowing me to lead a program that I love at a university that I love,” said Myers. “This is a special place and I am fortunate to be in a position to impact lives on a daily basis. My staff and I will continue to work tirelessly to win championships, produce men of high character and be a program that everyone can be proud of.”
