Mike Pressler Net Worth: Mike Pressler who has a net worth of $1.5 million dollars, is an American lacrosse coach. He was born on February 27, 1960, in Wilton, Connecticut, United States. Pressler attended Wilton High School, then Washington & Lee University, graduating in 1982. He was an outstanding lacrosse and football player, a four-year starter in both sports.

After West Point, Pressler was the head coach at Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU). He has been the head coach of the Bryant Bulldogs since 2007.
Pressler served as the head coach of the Duke Blue Devils for 16 seasons until he was forced to resign amid the Duke lacrosse case in 2006.
He was fired in 2006 in the wake of allegations of rape against three athletes in the program that proved to be baseless. Pressler’s firing was publicly portrayed by Duke as a resignation, which gave rise to the implication that the coach resigned due to the students’ presumed guilt.
He demanded compensation from Duke for wrongful termination. In early June 2007, Pressler and Duke agreed upon a financial settlement for an undisclosed amount.
In October 2007, he was inducted into the Ohio Wesleyan University Hall of Fame.
During his 5-year tenure at OWU from 1986 through 1990, Pressler amassed a 69-16 record, four NCAC championships, five visits to the NCAA Division III semi-finals, three NCAA Division III Championship game appearances, 29 All-American selections, and five NCAA Division III players of the year.
