PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania’s James H. Greene, Jr. Head Coach of Men’s Lacrosse, Mike Murphy, has announced that Patrick Myers has been promoted to the position of Associate Head Coach. Myers spent last year as offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator for the Quakers.
“I am very excited to promote Coach Myers to Associate Head Coach,” said Murphy. “His knowledge, work ethic, and approach to things here at Penn have truly enhanced our program in many ways. Pat has a tremendous offensive mind and is an excellent recruiter. His leadership traits are excellent, and we want to acknowledge this by promoting him to Associate Head Coach. I have a tremendous amount of confidence in Pat and our entire coaching staff, and I’m excited about the direction of Penn Lacrosse.”
Penn finished last season with a 6-7 record overall and a 3-3 Ivy League mark that was highlighted by a road win over then-No. 10 Brown. The Quakers played five teams that made the NCAA Championship field. As offensive coordinator, Myers oversaw a unit that was spearheaded by junior Nick Doktor, who earned second-team All-Ivy recognition after finishing the season with 36 assists (third on Penn’s all-time single-season list) and 57 points (tied for fourth on Penn’s single-season list).
In addition to his duties with the Penn program, Coach Myers will also spend the next year working as an assistant coach with the United States Under-19 team as they prepare for next summer’s FIL U-19 World Cup in Canada. The first set of tryouts for that team are currently taking place in Owings Mills, Md.
