COLUMBUS, Ohio – Nick Myers has joined the Ohio State men’s lacrosse coaching staff, head coach Joe Breschi announced Tuesday. Myers, who began his coaching career as the volunteer coach for the Buckeyes for two seasons (2002, ’03), spent the last two years as an assistant coach at Butler (2004, ’05).

Myers replaces Jay Stalfort, who left to pursue opportunities outside of coaching after being at Ohio State for eight years.

“Nick Myers is a welcome addition to our program,” Breschi said. “It’s great to have him home where he belongs in the Scarlet and Gray.”

“I’m thrilled to be back where I began coaching,” Myers said. “The opportunity to be at Ohio State and coach with Joe Breschi, who has been a mentor to me, is one I couldn’t pass up. Ohio State is a special place and I’m excited to get started.”

Myers will serve as the offensive coordinator for the Buckeyes, oversee recruiting and handle other aspects of the day-to-day operation of the men’s lacrosse program. He handled the same duties at Butler.

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.

A native of Kennebunk, Maine, Myers graduated from Kennebunk High School in 1997. He was a two-time high school All-American and participated in the 1997 North-South All-Star Game.

Myers graduated from Springfield with a degree in sports studies in 2001 and is working toward a master’s degree in administration. His brother, Pat, was a four-year letterwinner for the Buckeyes from 2000-03, a two-time All-Great Western Lacrosse League honoree and the conference rookie of the year in 2000.
