BALTIMORE, MD – Johns Hopkins University field hockey coach Megan Callahan announced today that she is stepping down from her position. Callahan recently completed her 20th season as the head coach at Johns Hopkins.

“We are thankful to Megan for her many years of dedication and service to Johns Hopkins University and our field hockey program.” Director of Athletics Alanna Shanahan stated. “She guided her team to some great moments in the program’s history and we wish her continued success in the future.”

Callahan’s 20-year tenure as the head coach at Johns Hopkins represents nearly half of the 42-year history of the program. She departs with a career record of 223-160 and led the Blue Jays to three Centennial Conference titles and five appearances in the NCAA Tournament during her time at Homewood.

In addition to the team success enjoyed under Callahan, a number of her players received individual honors as well. Not including the 2016 season, she coached 40 NFHCA All-Region selections, nine All-Americans and 69 times her players earned All-Centennial honors.

A national search for Callahan’s successor will begin immediately.
