|Title:||Volunteer Women's Soccer Assistant Coach|
Megan Cullen enters her first season as a volunteer assistant coach on Darren Lloyd’s women’s soccer coaching staff in 2017.
Coming directly off the pitch from GNAC counterpart and powerhouse Lasell, Cullen brings a fresh players perspective and a wealth of conference knowledge, as well as a winning culture mindset, to Lloyd’s coaching staff.
Cullen completed her four-year tenure with Lasell in 2016. During her stint as a Laser, she led the team to four consecutive conference crowns and NCAA Tournament appearances, running its total to seven straight. Individually, the forward took home multiple accolades including GNAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2015, a NEWISA Third-Team nod in 2016, two NSCAA All-Region (New England) selections as a junior and senior, respectively, and three All-GNAC honors.
Cullen took the field in 72 games throughout her career, 67 of which she appeared in the starting lineup. Her offensive drive scored a career 67 goals, 19 game-winners, while setting up 13 other markers for a career total 147 points. In both her junior and senior campaigns she led the league in goals and points earned, respectively. In her final season in 2016, Cullen helped the squad achieve the most successful season in Lasell history with an 18-3-1 ledger and the program’s seventh consecutive conference title and trip to the Big Dance thanks to 21 goals and 47 points from the senior co-captain.
To wrap up her dynamic career, Cullen represented the Lasers at the NEWISA Senior Bowl Game in 2016.
Cullen, who hails from Amesbury, Massachusetts, earned her Bachelors of Science in Sport Management with a minor in Accounting from Lasell in 2017.
