Pat Cullinan announced his resignation as the head coach of the Saint Joseph’s University men’s lacrosse team, the university announced today.
A search for his successor will begin immediately.
Cullinan served as the Hawks’ head coach for seven seasons and saw Saint Joseph’s make its move into the highly-competitive Colonial Athletic Association in 2011.
Cullinan was named the 2006 Anaconda Sports MAAC Coach of the Year after leading the Hawks’ turnaround to a 6-9 record in 2006 after a 3-11 mark in 2005. The following year, SJU was the conference runner-up after advancing to its first-ever appearance in the 2007 MAAC Championship game.
“We thank Pat for his service and are grateful for how he represented the University and worked to enhance the welfare of our student-athletes,” said director of athletics Don DiJulia.
Cullinan came to SJU in 2005 after four seasons as head coach at West Chester University. Two of his sons played for him at Saint Joseph’s while his daughter was a member of the Hawks’ women’s lacrosse team.
