Sources told Lacrosse Bucket on Wednesday night that LIU head coach Eric Wolf is expected to be named the next head boss at NJIT.
Chris Jastrzembski first reported that Wolf was the likely to take the job on Tuesday night.
Wolf arrived at LIU ahead of the 2018 season and led the program through its final two years as a DII program and its transition to DI, and subsequent rebranding as the Sharks during the 2020 season. In its two full seasons as a DI program (2021,2022), LIU has made consecutive NEC tournament appearances. This past spring, LIU fell eventual NEC champion Saint Joseph’s, 11-10, in the conference semifinals. They fell 19-11 to the Hawks in the 2021 NEC semifinals.
Prior to his time at LIU, Wold served as the offensive coordinator at Harvard. He also has tops at UAlbany, his alma mater, and Siena as an assistant coach.
At NJIT, Wolf takes over one of the newer programs in DI as the Highlanders just finished their eighth season in existence. NJIT has gone a combined 7-97 since their inaugural season in 2015. They are coming off an 0-13 2022 campaign.
