While the coaching carousel among head coaches is hot so is the carousel among assistant coaches. Just today it has been reported that Navy will hire Brad Ross as their new offensive coordinator and Richmond has announced the hiring of John Hogan as an assistant coach.
As first reported by Inside Lacrosse, Joe Amplo is set to bring on Ohio State offensive coordinator on to his inaugural staff at Navy in the same position. Ross had been an assistant at Ohio State since the summer of 2014 and was promoted to associate head coach in 2016. Ross oversaw the Buckeyes offense and was their director of recruiting.
He started his coaching career at Brown in 2010 as an assistant coach before joining the staff at Bryant where he served as an assistant and was promoted to associate head coach in 2012.
Ross played at Duke, graduating in 2009. He was a two-time captain and three-time All-American during his playing days with the Blue Devils. He also played in the MLL for a few years as well.
During his time at Ohio State he was able to help bring the Buckeyes program to the prominence they have today, including helping lead them to a NCAA championship appearance in 2016.
Richmond has announced the hiring of John Hogan as an assistant coach. Hogan comes to Richmond after spending two seasons at Penn State as a volunteer assistant. During his time at Penn State he helped transform the Nittany Lions program, including helping them to an NCAA final four appearance in 2019.
Hogan worked wit the Nittany Lions faceoff group and man-up unit during his time in State College, PA. Their man-up unit was ranked number one in the nation this past season, converting 61.3 percent of their attempts.
Prior to his time at Penn State Hogan coached at St. Ignatius College Prep, NXT Lacrosse, and the Annapolis Hawks. He played at Cornell from 2012-2015, helping lead the Big Red to three Ivy League championships. Hogan was also a two-time All-Ivy selection as well.
