Meet Our Coaches
Student & Athletic Programs Director
Megan Manthey Richey
I am originally from Ferndale, Washington. When I was sixteen I left home and became a full-time student at one of the most preeminent training facilities for athletes in Bradenton, Florida. I knew that I wanted to go to a top division 1 college to play soccer and earn my bachelor’s degree and I knew that upon graduation I wanted to turn pro. That is exactly what I did. I will be the first to tell you it wasn’t a smooth road.
I graduated from the IMG Soccer Academy at sixteen as the female player of the year. Derek Leader, Giovani Fernandes, Brook Hamilton, and Stacey Daniels were pivotal in my transformation as an athlete, on and off the field, and showed me what committed coaches look like. I went directly to the University of Colorado in Boulder where I spent my first two years of college being humbled and absolutely hating college soccer. I was ready to throw the towel in and give up on my dreams. I decided to start the recruiting process over at the end of my sophomore year of college. I transferred to the College of Charleston in South Carolina and I am forever grateful for Kevin Dempsey and Mike Barroqueiro and all they did for me in those last two years. I ended my college career as the conference’s leading goal scorer and overall point earner.
