Rutgers Reinstates Head Coach

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 14, 2013) – Rutgers University re-instated men’s lacrosse coach Brian Brecht effective Tuesday, May 14 after having suspended him on April 19 with pay, following allegations of verbal abuse.

While the university investigation found that the coach did use inappropriate language and exhibited unprofessional behavior on occasion, the instances were infrequent and not directed at individual players. Accordingly the university found no criminal or university policy violations.

“We are satisfied with the resolution regarding the situation,” said acting athletic director Carl Kirschner.

“I regret my behavior and am determined to set a better example in the future,” said Brecht. “I’m glad to be reinstated to the program and for the opportunity to work with these fine young men.”

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
