After graduation, coach Neale returned to Hart where he served as assistant to coach Joel Barr from 1975 to 1978. From 1979 to 1982 Coach Neale was the head girls coach for Saugus  High School and from 1982 to 1983 he was head water polo coach, girls and boys swim coach  at Simi High School.  In 1984 he returned to become the head girls and boys coach at Hart  High where he as been ever since.
