NFL Europe Coach of the Year (2004)
Rick Lantz was the interim head football coach at Navy in 2000, following the firing of former head coach Charlie Weatherbie. He was formerly a widely recognized defensive coordinator, and held high profile jobs at Virginia, and Louisville. He also served as an assistant coach at Georgia Tech, Miami, Buffalo, and Boston University.
Lantz also coached the Berlin Thunder and Rhein Fire of NFL Europe. In three seasons (2004–06) with the Berlin Thunder, Lantz coached the team to an 18-11-1 regular season record. In addition, the Thunder competed in two World Bowls. Berlin won World Bowl XII 30-24 over the Frankfurt Galaxy on June 12, 2004, in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. The following year, the Thunder fell in World Bowl XIII 27-21 to the Amsterdam Admirals on June 11, 2005, in Düsseldorf, Germany. The 2006 Berlin season included a 17-17 tie on the road against the Hamburg Sea Devils on April 1, one of just two ties in the history of NFL Europe.
