Ex-Terp coach Cottle loses out on Penn State job

UPDATED 9:56 A.M. THURSDAY

Brown lacrosse Coach Lars Tiffany is expected to be named as the new Coach at Penn State this week, three sources familiar with the situation said late Tuesday night. The other finalist for the Penn State job was former Maryland coach Dave Cottle.

Neither Tiffany nor Cottle immediately returned messages on Tuesday night. But the sources said Tiffany, a longtime assistant coach at Penn State, would be leaving Brown, his alma mater.

Cottle resigned last month following nine seasons at Maryland. The Terrapins have yet to name a replacement.

When reached Thursday morning, Tiffany said he was still deciding whether to take the job at Penn State or remain at Brown. If he leaves Brown, he is likely to bring at least one assistant with him, believed to be Bullis graduate Brad Ross.

The lacrosse community think's Cottle was treated unfairly due to unreasonalby high expectaions at Maryland? Yet; lowley [lacrosse wise] Penn State doesn't wan't him either?

I hope coach Cottle goes to Washington College. After all those years in charm city and college park life on the Eastern Shore coaching at a college with a solid program would be sweet.
