Lindsay Meggs is an American college baseball coach, currently serving as the head coach of the Washington Huskies baseball team. He took over that position prior to the 2010 season.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Meggs played for UCLA, starting at third base all four years. He was honorable mention All-Conference in 1983, and drafted after both his junior and senior years. He signed with the Kansas City Royals after being drafted in the 15th round of the 1984 Major League Baseball Draft, and enjoyed a brief professional career before returning to UCLA to complete his degree.[1]

Coaching career[edit]

After his playing career ended, Meggs began coaching at De Anza College, serving as an assistant for one season before moving to California Lutheran University for another season. Meggs earned his first head coaching opportunity at Oxnard College where he worked for one year before moving to Long Beach City College for three seasons. In those three seasons, his teams went 75–51–1 and made the playoffs each year. He then moved to Cal State Chico, where he was head coach for 13 years. The Wildcats were a major national power under Meggs, winning two Division II National Championships, appearing seven times in the Division II College World Series and claiming eight conference titles. Meggs was Division II National Coach of the Year twice, and regional and conference coach of the year seven times each.[1]

Meggs' success at Chico State landed him the head coaching position at Indiana State, where he worked for three years. The Sycamores were 33–21 overall and finished second in the Missouri Valley Conference after being picked to finish sixth in the preseason. Four players were named first team All-Conference that season, with five others earning other conference awards. Meggs was named MVC Coach of the Year for his efforts.[1][2]

On July 27, 2009, Meggs was introduced as the new head coach at Washington. In his first season, the Huskies were 28–28, an improvement of five wins over the previous season.[1] Among his efforts at Washington has been seeking additional facility enhancements, particularly to Husky Ballpark and the Huskies indoor facilities.[3] After the 2012 season, three additional years were added to his contract, which would keep him at Washington through at least 2018.[4]
