Rick Scala, the long-time head coach of the men’s rugby team, has announced that he will step down following the conclusion of the 2015-2016 season.

Scala, who has been the head coach of the program since 1986, has led the Polar Bears to unprecedented success since taking the helm, winning more than 75 percent of his contests, qualifying for the playoffs on a dozen occasions and winning the 1992 New England Championship. Additionally, Bowdoin has not lost a regular season match since 2011. Read more, including what Scala has to say about his time at Bowdoin here.


  1. Rick is truly the heart and soul of Bowdoin Rugby – he will be missed as Head Coach but I’m sure he’ll never be too far away from the pitch on Saturdays in the Fall. Thanks to Rick for the incredible legacy that he’s created @ Bowdoin Rugby.
