This move comes just two weeks after Holy Cross parted ways with former head coach Peter Burke and named Shayne Lynch the interim. Reppert is expected to keep Lynch, as well as Ian Farley on staff as assistants.
Reppert comes to Holy Cross following a six-year stint as the offensive coordinator at Maryland, where he helped lead the Terrapins to six Big Ten championships, four Final Four appearances, and a national title in 2017. Reppert was previously an assistant at Navy, which is his alma mater, and Washington College before his arrival in College Park.
Holy Cross has yet to release their 2021 schedule, however the Patriot League has announced their formant for spring sports. Men’s lacrosse will be broken in to two divisions: North and South. Holy Cross will be in the North alongside Army West Point, Boston University, and Colgate. Teams will play a minimum of seven conference games with, at least, one game against each divisional opponent and limited contest against non-divisional opponents.
The Crusaders come into the 2021 season after going 4-3 (0-2 Patriot League) during the shortened 2020 season, which included their best start (4-1) since 1981.
