[COACHING MOVES] Philadelphia soccer legend Lew Meehl has stepped down as Drexel men's coach after 17 years. The former Temple All-American and Philadelphia Atom has coached at the Division I level at Philadelphia Textile and Drexel for a combined 26 years with a 236-202-54 record.

"For the last 40 years as a player and a coach, soccer has been a huge part of my life," Meehl said. "I feel the time has come for me to devote more time to my family and my grandchildren. It has been a great experience at Drexel. The commitment of our athletic administration has been exceptional. My assistant coaches, Woody Hartman and Rick Tompkins, were a big part of the success we have had here at Drexel."

Meehl was a five-time Philadelphia Soccer Six Coach of the Year. In 2009, the Dragons had 5-12-1 record and went undefeated in Soccer Six play to earn a share of the league title.

Meehl was a three-time All-America midfielder at Temple and enjoyed an 11-year professional soccer career highlighted by a 1973 championship season as a member of the NASL Atoms. He's a former player-coach for the MISL's Philadelphia Fever.
