Bangor, ME - Husson University's head men's golf coach, Ed Meo, has stepped down at the conclusion of the 2013-2014 season after five seasons coaching the team.
"Unfortunately after five years of coaching golf at Husson I need to leave my position as head golf coach. I have been trying to juggle my career and coaching for a few years and am no longer able to do both," explained Meo. "It has been an honor to coach for Husson University and a privilege to coach some great student-athletes and fine young men."
Meo competed on the 2008-2009 Husson golf team that won a North Atlantic Conference Championship and competed in the NCAA Division III Championships. He took over coaching the team the following season and led the Eagles to their fourth, five, sixth, seventh, and eighth consecutive NAC Championships and five NCAA national championship appearances. In the fall of 2012 and 2013, Meo was named NAC Coach of the Year.
Husson Director of Athletics Frank Pergolizzi commented, "We are grateful to Ed for his many years of outstanding service to Husson University and to the golf program. Husson golf under Ed Meo's leadership has established an unprecedented level of excellence and success. We wish him the very best in his new endeavors."
A search for Meo's replacement will begin this summer.
