John Tillman is named men's lacrosse coach

John Tillman has been hired as Maryland's head men's lacrosse coach, Director of Athletics Deborah A. Yow announced Wednesday, becoming the ninth coach in the 85-year history of the program.

Tillman comes to College Park after three years returning Harvard lacrosse to national prominence and 12 seasons as the top assistant at Navy, during which the Midshipmen experienced some of the best years in their storied history. He has signed a seven-year contract.

During his three seasons at Harvard, Tillman compiled an overall record of 20-19, including an 8-5 mark in 2009, which was the Crimson's highest win total since 1999.
