Patrick Myers

Patrick Myers begins his first season as the head coach of the Lafayette men's lacrosse program.

Myers spent the last four seasons as the associate head coach at Penn. During his time in Philadelphia, Myers served as the offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator. He helped oversee a Quaker program with six All-Ivy league selections (two each in 2015, 2016 and 2017) and an Ivy League Rookie of the Year (Simon Mathias in 2016) laurel during his time. In 2018, Penn beat No. 1-ranked Duke for the first time in school history and made its third straight appearance in the Ivy League Tournament. In 2016, Myers worked as an assistant coach with the United States Under-19 team for the 2016 FIL U-19 World Cup in Canada.

Prior to joining the Penn staff, Myers served as an assistant at North Carolina from 2009-14. While there, the Tar Heels posted a 69-30 overall record and qualified for the NCAA Tournament each season, including quarterfinal appearances in 2010 and 2013. North Carolina claimed the ACC title in 2013, the program's first championship in 17 years, earning Myers a promotion to the Associate Head Coach role for the 2014 season. UNC held the No. 1 ranking in three different polls at the end of the 2013 campaign, the school's first top billing in two decades.

As North Carolina's offensive coordinator, Myers coached two Atlantic Coast Conference Players of the Year (Billy Bitter in 2010, Marcus Holman in 2013) and two ACC Rookies of the Year (Holman in 2010, Nick Galasso in 2011). During his time in Chapel Hill, Myers saw four offensive players earn All-America honors (Jimmy Bitter, Ryan Creighton, Joey Sankey, Chad Tutton) on three separate occasions. UNC was fourth in the nation in scoring in 2013 (13.5 gpg) and 2014 (13.0 gpg).

As UNC's recruiting coordinator, Myers oversaw the signing of two classes that were ranked No. 1 by Inside Lacrosse (2010 and 2012), and a third class in 2011 that was ranked No. 2. His 2010 and 2012 recruiting classes included eight Under Armour All-Americans each.
