Meehan replaces associate head coach Dan Keating, who stepped down after seven seasons as offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator for the Crimson and Gray.

“Dan Keating has been with me on Hawk Hill from my first day on the job and has been instrumental in everything that we have accomplished over the last seven years,” said Wray. “I am so grateful for the time and incredible dedication he has given to our program and all that he has done for our student-athletes. I’ve learned a lot from my time with Coach Keating, and I going to miss him greatly. I wish him and his family the absolute best.”

Meehan arrives on Hawk Hill by way of Binghamton University, where he was an assistant coach with the Bobcats since this past August.

“I’m excited to announce Scott Meehan as our new offensive coordinator,” said Wray. “I’ve seen first-hand the job that he did at conference opponent Mount St. Mary’s, and he gets incredibly high praise from head coach Dan Chemotti from his time at Richmond. The thing that stuck out most to me about Scott during the interview process is the passion he has for coaching and his love of teaching the game.”

Prior to that stop, Meehan spent two seasons as the offensive coordinator at conference-mate Mount St. Mary’s during the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. Meehan coached an offense that ranked 18th nationally in both points per game and assists per game and 23rd in scoring offense. In Meehan’s two seasons at the helm of the Mountaineers’ offense, MSM improved from 8.7 goals per game to 11.2 goals per game.

Meehan served as a volunteer assistant at the University of Richmond for the 2015-16 season, where the Spiders were ranked as high as 18th nationally and finished the spring at 11-5 overall, their highest ranking and best finish in program history.

Beginning his coaching experience at Franklin and Marshall College, Meehan took on the role of head assistant from Summer 2012 through Fall 2015, where he oversaw offensive schemes and the extra man offense and coached three All-Americans. In 2013, the Diplomats’ coaching staff was tabbed the Centennial Conference Coaching Staff of the Year.

Meehan was a four-year attackman at Washington and Lee University from 2009-12, where he notched 93 points (49g, 23a) and served as team captain in a senior season in which he went for 30 goals and 23 assists en route to team MVP honors. He graduated from Washington and Lee with a degree in economics in 2012.
