Mike Daly, who guided the Tufts University men's lacrosse program to three NCAA National Championship titles while boasting the nation's highest scoring offense, has been named the head men's lacrosse coach at Brown University in an announcement made by Bears' Director of Athletics Jack Hayes on July 1, 2016.
Daly posted a record of 244-83 in 18 seasons as head coach at Tufts, with nine NCAA Tournament appearances and seven NESCAC titles. His Tufts teams won national championships in 2010, 2014 and 2015.
Tufts led the nation in scoring last spring with 402 goals in 23 games for a 17.48 per game average. The Jumbos won their seventh consecutive NESCAC title and finished the year with a 20-3 record, falling in the national championship game.

Chris Wojcik ’96 has returned Harvard to the national stage in his six years as the Frisbie Family Head Coach for Harvard Men’s Lacrosse.
Harvard reached the title game of the Ivy League Tournament in 2016 after knocking off top-seeded and second-ranked Brown in the semifinal, 13-12. That victory was one of three for the Crimson over a nationally ranked opponent, with Harvard also defeating then No. 4 Duke, 14-9, and then No. 20 Villanova, 13-12. The win over the Wildcats came in the season opener in overtime as the Crimson became just the second team in NCAA history to win three-consecutive games in overtime. At the conclusion of the year Bobby Duvnjak (third team), Devin Dwyer (third team), and Joe Lang (honorable mention) were named to the USILA All-America teams, with a total of six individuals garnering All-Ivy League honors.
In 2014 the Crimson did what no other team had done in 24 years, winning the program’s first Ivy League championship since 1990 with a 5-1 conference record. By virtue of its regular season title, the Crimson earned the right to host the Ivy League Tournament at Harvard Stadium, where it advanced to the tournament final for the second time in program history. The feat helped earn Harvard an at-large berth to the NCAA tournament, its first since 2006 and sixth overall, while elevating the Crimson to a ranking of 11th in the nation. Harvard finished the year off with a 10-7 overall record, an impressive 7-1 mark in Cambridge, four wins over ranked opponents, and seven selections to the All-Ivy League teams, the second most in program history. Additionally, Devin Dwyer and Bobby Duvnjak garnered USILA All-America honorable mention honors, and Wojcik was tabbed as the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Coach of the Year.
In addition to his honors on the lacrosse field, Wojcik served as captain of the Harvard soccer team, earning two All-Ivy League honors and leading the team to an Ivy League title and an NCAA tournament appearance in the fall of 1994. Prior to graduation, Wojcik was named the winner of Harvard’s Bingham Award, presented to the top male student-athlete in the senior class.
