Merrimack’s Richards Named Head Coach at Chatham University

After two years at Merrimack as an assistant coach on Joe Gallo‘s staff, David Richards has been named the head coach of the Chatham (D-III) University men’s basketball team. Chatham is located near Pittsburgh, close to Richards’ hometown of New Castle, Pa.

Richards helped guide the program to one of its best two-year runs in school history, including 39 victories and berths to consecutive NCAA Tournaments.

“After a strong nationwide search, we feel that David is the right person to guide our program to success,” Chatham athletic director Leonard Trevino said to TribLive. “His enthusiasm is contagious, and he is extremely well prepared. Coach Richards understands the type of student-athlete that will be successful at Chatham. He knows that excellence isn’t just a goal we strive for but a habit that we want all our student-athletes to exhibit in everything they do.”

Richards came with Gallo to Merrimack from Robert Morris, where he was a video coordinator and director of basketball operations.
