Boston University has announced that head men’s lacrosse coach Ryan Polley has sogned a multi-year contract to remain as the Terriers head coach. Polley has been at the helm of the Terriers for all six seasons the program has been in existence.
Under Polley a very good foundation for success has been laid for for future success at Boston U and started to build upon it. The Terriers are now a consistent contender in the Patriot League each and every years.
In a press release Boston U. athletic director Drew Marrochello said, “In just six years, Ryan has built our program to be a perennial contender for a Patriot League title,”
Polley was named Patriot League Coach of The Year in 2017 after taking the Terriers to the Patriot League semifinals for the very first time. They have made that same trip each of the past two seasons as well. Polley also has mentored three All-Americans and seventeen All-Patriot League selections during his first six seasons at the helm of the Terriers.
This past season the Terriers went 11-6 overall and 5-3 in the Patriot League. They lost to Lehigh in the Patriot League semifinals by a score of 10-9. Polley was also named the New England DI Head Coach of The Year following the 2019 season, his second time winning it in three seasons.
While they do have some key loses, the expectations for the Terriers coming into the 2020 season are still very high as they look to secure their first ever Patriot League title and NCAA tournament berth.
