Dick Muther joined the St. Paul’s School faculty in 2016 as the School’s Director of Athletics. A graduate of Colby College who earned his M.Ed. from Harvard University, Mr. Muther has been teaching and coaching in prep schools for more than 40 years. He came to St. Paul’s School from Tabor Academy, where he was a math teacher, dorm parent, athletic director, and boys soccer, ice hockey and lacrosse coach.

Throughout his career, Mr. Muther has been heavily involved in the New England Private School Athletic Council ( NEPSAC ) coaching organizations, first as one of the founders and inaugural president of the NEPSAC boys soccer coaches association, and more recently as a member of the NEPSAC Athletic Directors Executive Board (President, 2011 – 2013).

In 2023, Mr. Muther returned to the classroom to teach mathematics. In the afternoon he finds coaching to be an excellent extension of the classroom. Whether it be on the pitch, ice, field or diamond, the skills that can be developed and the lessons that can be learned through commitment, effort, grit and teamwork are critical parts of the SPS student experience.

Mr. Muther is a father of four and lives in Armour House with his spouse, Cindy, who is also a member of the SPS faculty.
