That sucks but I'm sure most kids would rather play for Casey Powell than Jim Nagle

Stony Brook, N.Y. - Craig Gibson, an assistant on the Stony Brook men’s lacrosse staff for the past five seasons, has been promoted to associate head coach, head coach Jim Nagle announced Thursday.

"Coach Gibson is among the best offensive coordinators in the country,” lauded Nagle. “Year-in and year-out our offense ranks in the top 5 in shooting percentage and Man-Up offense. Coach Gibson does an amazing job teaching the fundamentals and our program is truly blessed to have this remarkable teacher leading the way."

Gibson has been at the controls of Stony Brook’s prolific offense since his arrival in 2012. He guided the Seawolves to the nation’s fifth-ranked scoring offense in 2016 (13.31 goals per game) and the second-ranked Man-Up Offense (54.2%), a vast improvement from a team that ranked 29th in scoring offense (9.82 goals per game) in his first season and has improved every year since.

Gibson’s efficient offense revolves around ball movement and taking high-percentage shots. Stony Brook’s offense ranked third in the country in assists per game (8.44) and fourth in shot percentage (35.9%) last season.

Attackmen in particular have thrived under Gibson’s tutelage. Mike Rooney (East Islip, N.Y.) finished second in the nation in points in 2015 with a school-record 111, graduating as the school's all-time leader in assists (121) and points (253).

Brody Eastwood (Victoria, British Columbia) led Division I in shooting percentage in each of his first three seasons and graduated as the program’s all-time leader in goals (181).

This past season, five of Stony Brook’s six starting offensive players earned all-conference honors. Seniors Matt Schultz (Smithtown, N.Y.), Challen Rogers (Coquitlam, British Columbia) and junior Alex Corpolongo (Purdys, N.Y.) garnered first team honors, while seniors Chris Hughes (Ocenaside, N.Y.) and Eastwood landed on the second team.

Prior to Stony Brook, Gibson served five seasons under Nagle at Colgate.

Congrats to coach Gibson. With the crazy turnover with head coach's this past year
i'm glad he's staying around. He has his work cut out for him this year. Many open
spots up for grabs.

Looks like Notre Dame added with Navy for fall scrimmage.

Here is the press release....

Stony Brook, N.Y. - The Stony Brook men’s lacrosse team will welcome two of the premier lacrosse programs in the country for a fall scrimmage on Oct. 8. Head coach Jim Nagle announced that Notre Dame and Navy will venture to Long Island to play three games in LaValle Stadium.

"We are very excited to have two programs with great traditions competing against our 2017 squad," said head coach Jim Nagle. "It should be a great day of fall lacrosse in the best venue in the country, LaValle Stadium.  I know our student-athletes are looking forward to the opportunity"

Notre Dame finished 2016 ranked no. 6 in the USILA Coaches’ Poll with a 9-3 record. After earning the no. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament, the Irish downed Air Force 15-7 in the first round before North Carolina ended their season with a 13-9 upset victory.

The Irish return USILA first team All-American Sergio Perkovic, second team All-American John Sexton and third team All-American goalie Shane Doss.  The Irish had five Long Island players on their 2016 roster, including three-time All-American Ryan Kavanaugh from Rockville Center and Chaminade High School.

Navy went 10-4 in 2016 to earn a no. 15 ranking. They upset no. 4 Yale in the NCAA First Round before taking no. 5 Brown to the brink in an 11-10 loss.

Navy’s no. 2 ranked scoring defense was led by second team All-American Chris Fennell, who returns for his senior season. Eight Midshipmen from the 2016 roster hailed from Long Island.

Stony Brook and Notre Dame will kick off the festivities with a game at 10 a.m. The Irish and Midshipmen will follow with a noon start followed by Stony Brook and Navy at 2 p.m.

Admission will be $5 per person.
