Jeff Tambroni is in his sixth season as Penn State's head coach in 2016.
In 2014, Tambroni led Penn State to its fourth consecutive above-.500 season. His student-athletes earned the eighth USILA All-American and third Scholar All-American honors of Tambroni's Penn State career. He also coached goalkeeper Austin Kaut to his school record third All-American honor and conference best All-CAA First Team award.
Tambroni was named CAA Coach of the Year for the second time in his career (2011), while goalkeeper Austin Kaut (under Tambroni's tutelage) was named Ensign C. Markland Kelly, Jr. Award for the nation's best goalie. Also, Kaut was CAA Player and Defensive Player of the Year. Freshman TJ Sanders was named Rookie of the Year and the Nittany Lions placed six on the All-CAA First Team.
Prior to Penn State, Tambroni spent 10 seasons as head coach at Cornell (2001-10). He guided the Big Red to a 109-40 record and three NCAA Final Four appearances (2007, 2009-10), including the 2009 national championship game.
Tambroni was named USILA Division I Coach of the Year following the 2009 season and was tabbed the 2007 and 2009 Field Turf/NCAA Division I Coach of the Year. Tambroni was also the 2004 and 2009 Ithaca Journal Male Coach of the Year and a three-time National Coach of the Week.
A 1992 graduate, Tambroni earned his bachelor's degree in American studies. He earned first-team All-America honors as a senior and was twice named a second-team All-American (1990-91). The MVP of the 1990 NCAA title game, Tambroni helped lead the team to back-to-back NCAA championships (1990-91) and left Hobart tied for seventh on the school's all-time scoring list with 202 points.
Tambroni and his wife, Michelle, have three daughters, Carissa, Madison and Ella. Michelle played field hockey at Penn State from 1988-90 and earned All-America honors as a senior.
The all-time winningest coach in school history, Dave Pietramala is as much a part of the history and tradition of the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse program as anyone. He spent four years as a standout defenseman for the Blue Jays from 1986 though 1989 and the last 16 years rebuilding the program to the status it held during his playing days.
The record of the program - with its 44 national championships, nine NCAA titles, 43 NCAA Tournament appearances and 183 First Team All-Americans - is as daunting as it is impressive and no one has ever embraced the program quite like Pietramala
The only candidate for the head coaching position when it became available after the 2000 season, Pietramala had watched the program slip, albeit slightly, from its glorious run in the 1970s and 1980s. The Blue Jays hadn’t won a national championship since 1987 when he arrived and hadn’t played in a national championship game since 1989.
Enter Pietramala, who was targeted, courted and hired by then Johns Hopkins President William Brody and Director of Athletics Tom Calder in a matter of days. It took less time than that for “Petro” to start piecing together a recruiting class that would change the course of the program.
When the history of the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse program is discussed, the general consensus is that Pietramala is the benchmark among players who roamed the defensive side of the field. Over the last 16 years he’s also worked his way into the discussion of coaching greats who have patrolled the sidelines at Homewood. In fact, with this first victory of the 2015 season, he passed the legendary Bob Scott as the winningest coach in school history with his 159th victory.
Pietramala as the Head Coach at Johns Hopkins
Pietramala has guided the Blue Jays to a 169-62 record, 14 trips to the NCAA Tournament, seven appearances in the Final Four, the 2005 and 2007 National Championships, two other appearances in the NCAA Championship game (2003, 2008) and the inaugural Big Ten Tournament title in 2015.
The 2005 national title also made Pietramala the first person in the history of college lacrosse to win a Division I national championship as a player and a head coach. To date, nobody has matched that feat.
The Final Fours
2015 (NCAA Semifinals): Johns Hopkins has advanced to the national semifinals a record 29 times. The trip to the Final Four for the 2015 team was easily the most surprising.
After starting the season with six losses in their first 10 games, the Blue Jays rallied for seven straight wins, won the Big Ten Tournament title and knocked off Virginia (19-7) and Syracuse (16-15) to advance to championship weekend.
The emotional run included a win at rival Maryland and two wins in the Big Ten Tournament that secured a spot in the NCAAs. The Blue Jays dropped a heart-breaking 12-11 decision to the Terrapins in the NCAA Semifinals, but the rally to get there was thrilling and one that won’t soon be forgotten.
2007 (National Champions): Finding a place for the 2007 NCAA Championship in the annals of the program is difficult.
Sure, the Blue Jays were considered a contender to win the championship when the season began, but a three-game losing streak at mid-season turned thoughts to making the NCAAs, not winning the tournament.
An overtime win in the pouring rain at Maryland and a one-goal win a week later against Navy jump-started a nine-game season-ending winning streak that included an overtime win against Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and a stunning one-goal upset of Duke in the national championship game.
2005 (National Champions): The 2005 season proved to be one of the greatest in the storied history of the program as Pietramala guided the Blue Jays to a school-record 16 wins (16-0) and the program’s eighth NCAA title.
Pietramala The Player
Pietramala was a three-time First Team All-American during his career at Johns Hopkins. He led the Blue Jays to the 1987 NCAA Championship and an appearance in the 1989 NCAA Championship game.
He was the recipient of the Schmeisser Award as the nation’s outstanding defenseman in 1988 and 1989 and earned the Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award as the nation’s most outstanding player in 1989 as well.
A native of Hicksville, New York, Pietramala is a 1985 graduate of St. Mary’s High School. He resides in nearby Timonium and has 12-year-old twin boys, Nicholas and Dominic.
Nick Myers completed his eighth season as head coach for the Ohio State men's lacrosse team in 2016. He took over the program July 10, 2008, after three seasons as the top assistant for the Buckeyes.
In his first eight years as the Buckeyes' head coach, Myers posted a 69-58 ledger overall and a 26-19 conference record. He has led the Buckeyes to the first postseason title in program history, two Creator's Trophy titles, a share of a league regular-season title, a spot in the NCAA quarterfinals twice (2013, '15) and to a No. 3 seed in the 2013 NCAA Tournament en route to the program's first NCAA tournament home game.
The team's community service numbers rise each year, with the program volunteering more than 2,300 hours in the community the last five seasons combined.
During the Summer of 2016, Myers led Team USA to the gold medal at the FIL Under-19 World Championship. The squad was 6-0 in the tournament and rallied from an 8-2 deficit in the championship game to win the title, Team USA's eighth consecutive gold medal.
In 2015, Myers led the Buckeyes into a new era, as the Big Ten Conference sponsored men's lacrosse for the first time. Ohio State, which ended the year 12-7 overall (3-2 B1G), advanced to the inaugural Big Ten Tournament championship game and earned an at-large spot in the NCAA Tournament. In the first round of the NCAA tourney, the Buckeyes went on the road and defeated two-time defending champion Duke before falling in the quarterfinals to eventual national champion Denver. During the season, the Buckeyes claimed the Creator's Trophy with road wins over Penn State and Michigan and topped three of the NCAA semifinalists while also hosting the Showdown in The Shoe before a crowd of more than 44,000 by the end of the game. Three Buckeyes earned USILA All-America accolades, as Jesse King and Haus were named to the third team and Tom Carey was an honorable mention choice, while five were recognized by the Big Ten, with King and Brown named First Team All-Big Ten. Academically, 24 Buckeyes were invited to the Scholar-Athlete Dinner, with 15 earning a spot on the Academic All-Big Ten Team, and Turner Evans and Christopher May both were named USILA Scholar All-Americans.
The 2013 campaign was one of the best in program history, posting a 13-4 ledger for the most wins for a Buckeye team since 1978. Ten of the victories were during the regular season, just the fifth time a Buckeye team hit double-digit wins before entering postseason play. The squad downed both Penn State and Michigan on the road to claim the Creator's Trophy for the first time. Wins over ranked opponents Loyola and Denver lifted the Buckeyes to the ECAC tournament crown and the No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament. Nearly 2,400 fans - a number that ranked fourth nationally among all first-round sites - watched the Buckeyes beat Towson 16-6 to advance to the NCAA quarterfinals for the second time in school history.
As the top assistant under Joe Breschi at Ohio State from 2006-08, Myers served as the offensive coordinator for the Buckeyes, oversaw recruiting and handled other aspects of the day-to-day operation of the men's lacrosse program.
Myers played for Springfield College in Massachusetts, earning Division III All-America honors in 2001. He was a three-time All-NEWMAC selection and was the 2000 conference player of the year.
A native of Kennebunk, Maine, Myers graduated from Kennebunk High School in 1997. He was a two-time high school All-American and participated in the 1997 North-South All-Star Game.
Myers married the former Julie Cowles, also a Springfield College graduate who now is a physical education teacher at Walnut Springs Middle School, Aug. 19, 2006. The couple lives in Columbus with their sons, Mason and Zachary.
