Rumor mill... Not sure how exact this is but the team should hear within the next couple of weeks who the new coach will be.  Lighting a candle and saying some prayers it will be a good hire.  LOL

Wellner 'disappointed' about missing out on Navy lacrosse job

Wellner told Gladchuk from the outset he was interested in replacing Sowell as head coach and set about proving his capabilities while holding the interim tag.

I think my interview probably started the Friday after Coach Sowell was let go and concluded on Monday afternoon prior to when Coach Amplo was offered the job. It was an ongoing interview and Chet and I spent a lot of time together, Wellner said.

Im certainly appreciative of the opportunity Chet gave me and the chance to show him and the Naval Academy Athletic Association staff that I was the right man for the job, Wellner added.

Wellner felt all along he had a legitimate shot at becoming the head coach and naturally believed he was the best choice. The 41-year-old Long Island native was granted a formal interview by Gladchuk and did not hide his disappointment about being passed over.

Yes, I am disappointed. Absolutely Im disappointed, but thats how these things go. You either win them or you lose them, he said.

We didnt get into that and Im not sure what Coach Amplos future plans are at all, Wellner said. Im going to pursue some head coaching opportunities in the near term and Im sure well circle back at some point.

Wellner is believed to be a leading candidate for the vacancy at Stony Brook, which is where he first began working for Sowell. Stony Brook went 32-14 overall and 15-1 in the America East Conference during the three seasons Wellner was on staff.

if true- that turns the discussion to what happens when dino sr. hangs up the cleats.  which could be the case in the next 5-10 years.

which then turns discussion to: chemotti, cassese, dino jr., amplo, perhaps even deluca.

actually why not toss alberici into that discussion too.

i question whether colllegecrosse really has info other than what we've seen online, but here goes: https://www.collegecrosse.com/2019/6/11/18660678/harvard-crimson-stony-brook-seawolves-mens-college-ncaa-lacrosse-head-coach-search-updates-lax

Stony Brook
Stony Brook is taking their time with their search and has a little ways to go.

Following up from last week, Duke assistant Matt Danowski is certainly a name in the hunt for the Seawolves head coaching job. So is Navy assistant Ryan Wellner, who sounds like would be retained at Navy if he wants, and now Robert Morris head coach Drew McMinn as well.

Some names that have been mentioned as other possible candidates have been Towson assistant Anthony Gilardi, who was a finalist for Fairfield, North Carolina assistant Kevin Unterstein, and Rutgers assistant Dan Cocchi.

Notice how they are all assistants!!!!  When it comes to sports SB is a place to grow, get better and move out to bigger schools. Thats great for the coaches, bad for the university.

If stony brook continues hiring 2nd rate, unproven and the unknown assistant to the assistant coaches, this school will never be taken seriously and they will always lose out to bigger schools when it comes to recruiting..

Hiring Danowski or another young assistant would not be bad for the University. I do not agree with you Hammertime. Hoping for a young blood!

I have also heard from folks pretty close to the program that Matt Danowski is a top target.  He has deep LI roots and significant coaching experience under his dad who is probably a top 5 lacrosse coach all time.  What more can you ask for? That would be a home run imo.

I very strongly agree. Danowski is exactly the kind of coach the players need and would love to play for!! If he leaves in 5 years to take the Duke head coach position so be it. What is the shelf life for a D1 coach these days anyway.  We are not getting a great coach/ longtime coach (lifer) at Stony Brook. Lets be realistic folks this is Stony Brook not Maryland and AE is not the Big 10. We need help right now!



Buzzshooter, right on!

Job one for new head coach is to make sure Austin Deskowitz the emerging #1 FOGO stays with the team. Especially with Nolan Enneguess  in the portal.

Danowski would be a homerun hire. There is nothing about him that is unknown.

He grew up on Long Island and has been coaching at an elite institution for years.

would be some irony, no?

his dad, the longtime hofstra coach.  now he could end up the SB coach.  potentially against his dad!

I understand they want to do their due diligence but it seems like this is taking fairly long no?  It has been over a month since the players have had a coach and the summer recruiting circuit started a few weeks ago. I am hoping we are not on plan B) or C).  Fingers crossed for Dino Jr.

Wellner and Danowski listed as the other finalists for the job.  Wow.

To the uninitiated (uh, me), this looks like a very good choice.
