Josh Meeks is in his fifth year as an assistant football coach at Hamilton College. Meeks is responsible for the Continentals' wide receivers. Two of his receivers have picked up a total of four all-NESCAC team selections. Hamilton athletes have set program records for most receiving yards and touchdowns in a season and tied records for most receptions in a season and touchdown catches in a game. One of Meeks' receivers set the NESCAC single-season record for kick return yardage in 2018.
Meeks coached the wide receivers for Team Stars and Stripes at the 2017 Tazón de Estrellas (Bowl of the Stars) at Centro de Enseñanza Técnica Y Superior University in Tijuana, Mexico. The annual December game features a squad of select NCAA Division III student-athletes and a team of all-stars selected from Mexico’s private universities.
Meeks was a graduate assistant coach at Alfred University in 2013 and 2014 and served on current Hamilton head coach Dave Murray's staff. At Alfred, Meeks coached the tight ends and wide receivers. Two of his players received Empire 8 all-conference honors and in 2013 the Saxons went 8-3 and won the Eastern College Athletic Conference North Central Bowl Championship.
Meeks coached the wide receivers and running backs at North Carolina Wesleyan College -- his alma mater -- in 2012. One of his players made the USA South Athletic Conference all-star team, and he was an associate strength and conditioning coach.
Meeks was a four-year letter winner at quarterback for the Battling Bishops. The team captured USA South Athletic Conference titles in 2009 and 2010 and played in the first round of the 2009 NCAA championship after posting a perfect 7-0 conference record. He was the recipient of North Carolina Wesleyan's Moe Bauer Sportsmanship Award his senior year.
