Scott Meehan joined the Richmond men's lacrosse coaching staff before the fall of 2015, and focuses primarily on the faceoff and wing play units. He also assists head coach Dan Chemotti with the offense and help administrate camps.
"We were very happy to have Coach Meehan agree to join us down at Richmond," said head coach Dan Chemotti. "We are beyond excited now that he is here on campus. He has already significantly impacted our program in a positive manner and he has quickly established great relationships with our players, staff, and personnel. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with him to Richmond and combines that with a strong work ethic and intelligence. We are excited for him to take the reigns of our face-off department and personally, I'm looking forward to working closely with him on the offensive end. To sum things, we are lucky to have someone of his caliber here at Richmond."
In his first year with the Spiders, Meehan coached Peter Moran to a No. 23 ranking in face-off winning percentage, while also helping the team to a, 11-5 overall record in its third season. Seven Spiders were named to All-Conference teams for the season.

He scored 52 goals and assisted on 41 others, including 30 goals and 23 assists in his senior season.
