Old Dominion field hockey has had three coaches since becoming a varsity team in 1974, and its last coach, Beth Anders, lasted three decades.

Andrew Griffiths faces the tall task of meeting the standards Anders set.

Griffiths accepted the Lady Monarchs' head coaching job Monday, leaving Lafayette College, where he had a 73-46 record in six years. The rebuilding project he did there culminated in a 17-3 record and an NCAA tournament berth this fall.

The former Canadian men's national team player has 15 years of college coaching experience, as well as national and international profiles as a player and coach.
