Remington Steele | Assistant Coach

Remington “Remi” Steele joined the Furman staff as an assistant coach in July of 2016.

“I am extremely excited with the addition of Remington Steele to our staff,” said Furman head coach Rachel Whitten. “His dedication and excitement about women’s lacrosse is very apparent, especially when you look at his background and resume.  I think Remi’s innovative ideas and knowledge about the sport will really help us with the new rule changes for the 2017 season.”

Steele has spent the last two years serving as an assistant coach at the University of Vermont. While on staff for the Catamounts, Steele served as the defensive coordinator and oversaw the goalies. Steele helped guide Vermont to a 17-17 record in his two years as an assistant.

Prior to Vermont, Steele spent two seasons serving as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Limestone College in Gaffney, S.C. He helped the Saints to a 20-2 record in 2013 on their way to a conference title and runner-up finish at the Division II National Championship. In 2014, the Saints went 18-1 and earned the No. 2 national ranking en route to another conference championship and NCAA tournament appearance. Steele coached 17 all-conference players, 10 all-region performers and four All-Americans during his two years on the staff at Limestone.

Steele is currently the assistant coach of the Welsh Senior Women’s National Team, currently ranked 5th in the world and competing in 2017 FIL World Cup. Steele is the co-offensive coordinator and goalie coach, and develops offensive and defensive schemes in preparation for the World Cup.

Steele has also worked with the New Zealand U-19 Girls National Team and was the head coach of the squad at the 2015 FIL U-19 World Championships. With the national team, Steele was responsible for overseeing all aspects of the program, including: identifying talent, planning practice and training camp, implementing offensive and defensive schemes, obtaining corporate sponsors as well as many other duties.

Prior to joining the staff at Limestone, Steele served as the head coach of the girls' varsity lacrosse team at Coppell High School and was an assistant coach at Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas. He helped lead Coppell to a No. 8 ranking nationally, while producing the No. 1 ranked offense. At Jesuit, he worked with the goalkeepers and helped lead the squad to a runner-up finish at the Texas State Tournament in 2010 and the No. 1 ranking in 2012.

Steele played his first collegiate season at Robert Morris before transferring to Limestone, where he spent his final three years with the nationally ranked Saints. During his time at Limestone, Steele saw action in 19 games in goal and was a member of three straight teams to win the conference championship and reach the NCAA DII national semifinals.

In 2008, Steele was the starting goalie for the U-19 Canadian National Team at the World Championships and helped guide his team to a silver medal. Prior to that, he played for Hillcrest High School in Dallas, Texas where he was a two-time All-State selection.

Steele, a native of Dallas, graduated from Limestone College in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in sports management and a minor in coaching.
