One of the most successful coaches in NCAA history, Richie Meade’s name is synonymous with leadership and discipline. In 21 years as a collegiate head coach, the Williston Park, N.Y., native amassed a 169-120 record, including a 142-97 record in 17 years at the Naval Academy.
During his tenure at the US Naval Academy, Meade guided the Midshipmen to seven NCAA Tournament appearances, including the 2004 season when Navy came up a goal short against Syracuse in its quest to win the program’s first NCAA Championship. By year’s end in 2004, Navy produced a program-record 15 wins, while earning its highest ranking, No. 2, for five-consecutive weeks. Additionally, Navy scored its first win over a No. 1-ranked team, a 9-6 victory over Maryland. Meade capped off the year as the recipient of the Morris Touchstone Memorial Award, given to the National Coach of the Year. Along the way, Meade led the Mids to a 38-11 Patriot League record and won at least a share of the regular-season title in five of the eight seasons Navy has been a member of the conference. Navy also won five tournament crowns.
Meade began his coaching career at Duke in 1977 before moving on to his alma mater, North Carolina in 1979. Just a year later, he earned his first head coaching post at the University of Baltimore, where he owned a four-year record of 27-23 before the school dropped its athletic program in 1983.
Meade serves as President of the Intercollegiate Men’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA), which was created to help build the game of lacrosse, become the premier organization providing coaches development and monitor the integrity of the game.
