After eight season at the helm, Ed Stephenson has resigned as the head men’s lacrosse coach at UMass Lowell.
Stephenson led the River Hawks through their move to DI. During his tenure, the River Hawks made a lone America East Tournament appearance in 2018.
“I’m grateful to Coach Stephenson for his efforts in helping us reestablish men’s lacrosse at UMass Lowell and for his guidance in building a Division I program here over the last eight years,” said UMass Lowell Athletics Director Casey in a release. “We will begin a national search for our next head coach immediately. We are fully invested in the success of our student-athletes, both on and off the field, and have high expectations for the next era in River Hawk lacrosse.”
During his eight years at the helm of the River Hawks, Stephenson led them to an overall record of 28-77. They went 2-11 this past season with their two victories both coming by one goal over NJIT and Binghamton.
Stephenson’s departure creates the third opening of the 2022 coaching carousel. The head coaching positions at St. John’s and Providence came open last week.
