As first reported by Chris Jastrzembski, Stony Brook has parted ways with head coach Jim Nagle after seven years at the helm of the Seawolves.
Nagle led the Seawolves to an overall record of 68-59 during his tenure. During his reign, Stony Brook reached success as a power in the America East, winning the conference in 2012 and being in the championship game in 2013 and 2015.
The Seawolves won six America East regular season titles under Nagle and never missed the America East conference tournament.
This past season Stony Brook went 9-6 overall and 5-1 in the America East. After being hailed the America East regular season champions the Seawolves lost to UMBC in the semifinals of the America East tournament. Nagle was also named the 2019 America East Coach of the Year.
While Nagle had a lot of success at Stony Brook the past couple of seasons were very rough, especially out of conference. The Seawolves have only had one winning season since going 12-4 in 2016.
Prior to taking over at Stony Brook, Nagle was the head coach at Colgate for 10 seasons where he enjoyed much success, leading the Raiders to multiple NCAA tournament appearances. Nagle’s first head coaching job was at Oneota State and he started his coaching career as an assistant at Springfield.
Stony Book is the fourth DI men’s head coaching position to become open following the 2019 season. Navy, Harvard, and Fairfield are the other three current openings.
