Quinnipiac has lifted the interim tag from Mason Poli, thus making him the full head coach of the Bobcats. Poli served this past season as the interim head coach after former head coach Eric Feteke was fired back in the fall.
With all the off the field stuff that happened in the fall, Poli was still able to rally the troops and put together a pretty successful 2019 run while serving as the interim. The Bobcats finished the season 9-7 overall and 5-2 in the MAAC.
Poli led the Bobcats to the MAAC tournament where they defeated Detroit Mercy in the semifinals and lost to Marist in the MAAC championship game. They also had two players, Jake Tomsik and Will Abbott, make first team All-MAAC while Foster Cuomo made second team ALL-MAAC.
This past season was Poli’s fifth with Quinnipiac and the first leading them on an interim basis. Prior to being named the interim head coach Poli was the Bobcats defensive coordinator for four seasons.
Having played at Bryant, Poli started his coaching career at Richmond as a volunteer assistant before coming to Quinnipiac in 2014. He has coached in the club lacrosse scene in Philadelphia as well.
