Andrew McMinn will take over the reigns as the second-ever head coach in Utah lacrosse history, the university announced on Tuesday afternoon.
“This is an exciting day for our lacrosse program, and for Utah Athletics, to introduce Andrew McMinn as our new head coach—a leader with a proven track record of building a successful program,” Utah Athletic Director Mark Harlan said in a release.
McMinn comes to Utah after leading the Robert Morris Colonials for 10 seasons. He served on the Colonials staff for 15 seasons, serving as an assistant coach before succeeding Bear Davis as the head man. McMinn compiled a 76-67 overall record at Robert Morris and led the program to their first and second NCAA Tournament appearances in 2018 and 2019, being crowned the NEC champs both seasons.
A native of Pittsburg, Pa. McMinn played his college lacrosse at Providence where he was a three-time all-conference selection as a goalie and helped lead the Friars to an NCAA Tournament berth in 2004.
McMinn takes over a program in Utah heading into its fourth season and entering a conference (ASUN) for the first time. The Utes have gone 20-12 during their first three seasons under former head coach Brian Holman.
