Downingtown East’s Todd Cliggett has stepped down as head coach after nine successful seasons.
Cliggett wanted to spend more time with his family and also runs his own business.
Cliggett posted a record of 116-73 and took his Cougars to the PIAA tournament two times. He won one Ches-Mont League title, in 2013 when it was shared with Avon Grove, Bishop Shanahan and Great Valley.
Cliggett was an assistant coach at Downingtown East for three years before taking over.
He was an assistant at Episcopal Academy from 1995-2001 and helped EA win state titles in 1995 and 1996. He also was an assistant at Conestoga from 2003-05 and helped the Pioneers win Central League crowns in his last two years there.
Cliggett said he was proud that 51 players under his watch as head coach went on to play college lacrosse.
Cliggett, a graduate of Conestoga, played four years of lacrosse at Division III power Salisbury College (Class of 1994) and was a member of the National Championship team in 1994.
