Amanda Belichick enters her third season as an assistant coach with Ohio State women's lacrosse in 2012-13 after joining the staff in August 2010.
Belichick, who coached under Alexis Venechanos at UMass in 2010, helped the Minutewomen to repeat performances as Atlantic-10 champions and NCAA Tournament participants. She joined the UMass program after serving as head lacrosse coach at Choate Rosemary Hall for two years. Belichick, the daughter of New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick, also served as an assistant coach for the varsity soccer team and the junior varsity ice hockey team.
A native of Weston, Mass., Belichick has worked several lacrosse camps throughout the country including Amonte Sports Camp and The Lacrosse School. At the club level, she served as coach of the Nor'Easter Lacrosse Team and Revolution Lacrosse. A 2007 graduate of Wesleyan University, Belichick was a co-captain for the Cardinals as a senior. During her junior year of 2006, she became just the second player in program history to scoring over 50 points in a season (33g, 19a) as an attack.
"Amanda was a very integral part of the UMass repeating as A10 Champions in 2010," Venechanos said. "She understands the recruiting process and did an incredible job evaluating and recruiting high school prospects while at UMass. Also, she possesses strong creativity and her past experiences as a coach and a player will aid to the program."
