From staff reports

Gonzaga has parted ways with men’s soccer coach Paul Meehan, the school announced Wednesday.

Meehan led the Bulldogs to a 8-33-4 record in three seasons as head coach. He was an assistant under Einer Thorarinsson for five seasons prior to taking over the program in 2018.

Assistant coach Aaron Lewis will move into the head coaching role.

The Zags finished their shortened 2021 spring season with a 2-9 record, including a 0-6 mark in West Coast Conference play.

“I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to be a Zag for the last eight years,” Meehan said in a team release. “I appreciate the lifelong friendships that have been made with so many coaches, staff members and student-athletes.”

Lewis was hired as an assistant coach heading into the 2019 season. He came to GU after six seasons as the head coach at Corban University.
