position Assistant Coach
Molly Hendrick was hired as an assistant coach in June 2017 and is entering her second season at Ohio State.
Hendrick finished her playing career at North Carolina in 2017 as one of the best players in program history. She was a two-time All-American and three-time All-ACC honoree, ending her career with 186 goals and 220 points, which both rank among the highest totals for a Tar Heel. In 2017 she set school records with 72 goals and 83 points en route to being named the 2017 ACC Attacker of the Year. As a junior in 2016 Hendrick led her team with 10 goals during the NCAA Tournament, including three in a 13-7 victory over Maryland to capture the national championship.
Hendrick’s career took off from day one in Chapel Hill. As a freshman she started all 20 games for the Tar Heels, earning 33 draw controls and accumulating five multi-goal games. She was named to Inside Lacrosse’s 2014 All-Rookie Team for her efforts, the first of three IL postseason honors she would receive in her career.
Off the field, Hendrick frequently participated in North Carolina’s Leadership Lab, a leadership training program for student-athletes. Over the course of their careers student-athletes receive authentic leadership development training, undertake project management, draft a rudimentary business plan, receive internship/work experience, go through a project incubator, perform community outreach, present a scaled-down thesis proposal and defense, and benchmark leadership development best practices. All that, combined with her dominant playing career, makes her a perfect candidate to help lead the Buckeyes as an assistant coach.
