In a release, Johns Hopkins Athletic Director Jennifer S. Baker has announced that the university and head men’s lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala have mutually agreed to part ways.
“For two decaded, Dave Pietramala guided our men’s lacrosse program and we are truly thankful for his tireless efforts and the leadership he provided to the young men who represented who represented Johns Hopkins at the highest level on and off the field,” Baker noted.
Pietramala, who is an alum of Johns Hopkins, is the winningest coach in Johns Hopkins history. He complied a record of 207-93 over his 19 seasons at the Helm of the Blue Jays. He guided them to 18 NCAA Tournament appearances, which included seven Championship Weekend appearances, four national championship appearances, and two national titles (2005,2007).
Additionally, Pietramala oversaw the move that took Johns Hopkins lacrosse into the Big Ten conference in 2015, which marked the first time they had not been independent since the programs inception.
Since joining the Big Ten in 2015, the Blue Jays have had three NCAA First Round exits, one Final Four appearance, and one Quarterfinal appearance.
The Blue Jays were 2-4 before the 2020 season was cut short due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
