Coach Patrick Monahan


Patrick Monahan is excited to join the Hope College rugby club as a coach this fall.  Patrick has been involved in the sport since joining the University of Notre Dame men’s rugby club in 1987.  His involvement in club rugby at Notre Dame included serving as match secretary and club president.  Patrick’s post-collegiate career continued with the Seattle Rugby Club where he played until moving to the Holland area in 1995.

In 2008, Patrick joined Sean McTaggart in coaching a high school rugby team from West Ottawa High School in Holland.  The team has had a great deal of success, winning Division 1 state titles in 2009 and 2012 and finishing second in 2011.  West Ottawa won state titles in Division 3 (2008) and Division 2 (2010) for a total of four state championships and one second place finish over six years.  They also competed in the 2012  Midwest championship tournament placing fifth and achieving  a top 25 ranking nationally.

Hope is now a member of the National Small College Organization
