Holy Cross Head Coach Steps Down

WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross director of athletics Nathan Pine announced Monday that Jim Morrissey has stepped down as the College’s head men’s lacrosse coach.

“I have accepted Coach Morrissey’s resignation and we wish him well in all of his future endeavors,” said Pine. “We will be conducting a national search to find our next head coach, looking for a leader who will bring outstanding credentials, positive leadership and renewed enthusiasm to our program.”

Morrissey served as the Crusaders’ head coach for four seasons, after taking over as the interim head coach midway through the 2011 campaign. The team posted an overall record of 17-36 during his tenure, including a 4-21 mark against Patriot League foes.

Assistant coach Justin Hager will assume the role of interim head coach for the season finale at Dartmouth on April 29.

Holy Cross will immediately commence a national search for a new head coach.
