Immaculata University is seeking applications for the part-time job of head men’s lacrosse coach after enjoying its most successful season in its brief history.
The position will include overseeing the men’s lacrosse programs in areas of organization, coaching (skill development and strategy), administration, fund raising and student-athlete recruitment.
Prior coaching and competitive experience is required, with collegiate coaching experience preferred. The successful candidate must also have obtained a bachelor’s degree and have working knowledge of NCAA Division III rules.
The Mighty Macs have had a men’s program for three years and were led by veteran mentor Bob Bush, who recently resigned. Bush guided the team to its best campaign in 2009, as Immaculata finished 4-9 overall and 2-4 in the Colonial States Athletic Conference.
The Mighty Macs will graduate only two seniors and will return several all-league standouts, including rising junior midfielder Joe Keller (second team; Owen J. Roberts); rising senior goalie and recent Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer & Brecher Collegiate Scholar-Athlete of the Week Andrew Sim (honorable mention; Interboro); and rising sophomore attack John Cacchio (honorable mention; Holy Ghost Prep). Cacchio led the team in scoring with 13 goals and 19 assists and Keller had 20 goals and 4 assists.
Immaculata also will return its two other top scorers, rising junior Brendan Dinneen (30 goals; Archbishop Wood) and rising senior Tom Hartney (18 goals, 9 assists; Interboro).
Those interested should send a resume and cover letter to Immaculata University, Men’s Lacrosse Search Committee, Department of Athletics,PO Box 632, Immaculata, PA 19345
