New Brown Men’s Coach Mike Daly to Speak at LaxCon
SPARKS, Md.,— US Lacrosse today announced that Brown University men’s lacrosse head coach Mike Daly will host an educational session for coaches at the 2017 US Lacrosse Convention (LaxCon).
Daly, who coached Tufts University to NCAA Division III championships in 2010, 2014 and 2015, replaced Lars Tiffany as coach of the Bears on July 1, 2016. Under Daly, the Jumbos qualified for the NCAA tournament nine times, won seven New England Small College Athletic Conference championships, and reached the NCAA final five times. Daly earned a 244-83 record in an 18-year tenure as head coach at Tufts, his alma mater.
“I have benefitted from my association with many of the game’s best coaches, and speaking at the US Lacrosse Convention will allow me to give back to the game by sharing some tips with today’s up-and-coming lacrosse coaches,” Daly said. “I’m looking forward to connecting with the lacrosse community at the event.”
LaxCon represents lacrosse’s largest educational event and is set for Jan. 20-22, 2017, at the Baltimore Convention Center. The event is open to the public, and members of US Lacrosse can save up to $60 on registration. Special hotel rates are available for all attendees. Speaker schedules will be finalized in the coming weeks. For more information or to register, visit www.uslacrosse.org/laxcon.
The United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association twice named Daly its F. Morris Touchstone National Coach of the Year (2010 and 2014). His teams won at least 20 games in four seasons. A proponent of an up-tempo offense that supports lacrosse’s “fastest sport on two feet” moniker, Daly’s 2014 team scored 423 goals to set an NCAA record across all divisions of play. He was featured in the article, “Fast Times: The Run-and-Gun Revival of College Lacrosse uslaxmagazine.com/college_men/DI/2016-17/news/082216_fast_times_run_and_gun_revival_of_college_lacrosse,” authored by Patrick Stevens in the September/October edition of US Lacrosse Magazine.
Daly attended Tufts and graduated in 1995. He served as an assistant coach with the Jumbos prior to his promotion to head coach in advance of the 1999 season.
