Megan Dzikas returned to her alma mater in 2019 as an assistant coach for the Florida Southern women's basketball team. One of the most prolific three-point shooters in school history, Dzikas found her way back to Lakeland after spending the previous three seasons as an assistant coach at Saint Leo University. Prior to that, she spent two seasons at the NAIA level as an assistant coach (2014-15) and head coach (2015-16) at St. Catharine College in Kentucky.
At Saint Leo, Dzikas helped breath new life into a program that had won just five games in the season prior to her arrival with then-new head coach Anthony Crocitto. After a 5-22 record in 2015-16, Saint Leo went 9-18 the following year and eclipsed the 10-win mark in each of the next two seasons. She also helped coach Chelsey Springs to first team all-SSC accolades as a senior.
Prior to her time at St. Catharine, Dzikas was a graduate assistant for two seasons at Goucher College, and Division III institution in Maryland.
A two-time all-Sunshine State Conference player for the Moccasins during her collegiate career, Dzikas helped lead Florida Southern to an 87-31 record, including a 49-9 mark in conference play. She also led the Mocs to a pair of SSC regular-season titles and one SSC Tournament championship. Dzikas was also part of a team that finished as the runner-up in the NCAA South Regional in back-to-back seasons. She was the Sunshine State Conference Freshman of the Year in 2008-09.
She finished her career with 1,368 points, good for 12th in program history, and ranks second in school history in assists (515). She also ranks among the top five in FSC history in three-pointers made and attempted, and three-point percentage.
An honorable mention all-SSC selection as a sophomore, Dzikas closed out her Florida Southern career by earning second team all-SSC honors after helping lead the Moccasins to a 24-7 record and an NCAA South Region runner-up finish as a senior.
