He's been an HC already, been to the NCAAs several times, won with a tougher schedule.  Then again, I'm not a Lax guy, never even played in HS, in part because I disliked the coach.  So take my opinion with a grain of salt.

Our own Chris Jastrzembski reported that after Joe Amplo took the head coaching position at Navy, Gilardi was SBU’s top choice and they focused in on making him their head coach; Duke’s Matt Danowski, former Stony Brook assistant Ryan Wellner, and Robert Morris head coach Andrew McMinn were finalists.

"My family and I could not be more excited to be joining the Seawolves family," Gilardi said. "I want to thank Athletic Director Shawn Heilbron and the entire search committee for believing in me and my vision to help lead Stony Brook Men's Lacrosse to new levels. I want to thank Towson Head Coach Shawn Nadelen, all of the Towson staff and all of our players, past and present, for all of the support, passion and love. We are looking forward to attacking each and every day with championship effort in all we do and we will focus on keeping the best players on Long Island home!"

Had a nice conversation with a friend who will remain anonymous. If he wants to chime in, he always can.

We agreed on one important thing. Gilardi may prove to be just fine. But SB needed to reach for the stars and they didn't. Danowski would have been the home run the program has been starving for.

Imagine if the guys broadcasting the PLL said "Stony Brook coach Matt Danowski" every time he touched the ball.

Local high school coaches wanted him, alumni wanted him, there apparently are some deep-pocketed alumni who offered to help pay Danowski if needed. Do you think they do that for anyone else?

I do want to be fair to Gilardi, though. He checks off the boxes. He can coach. He can recruit. The offense will be better. SB will compete. Like I said, he may prove to be just fine. And Danowski could have sprinted for wherever after his contract was up. But so could Gilardi. Think about it, that only happens if he's massively successful, in which case we find a way to make him stay.

I know Danowski also would have vaulted the men's program back to the forefront, possibly taking some of the spotlight from the women which some think Joe Spallina might not like. I don't necessarily buy that. My answer is simple: Geno Auriemma and Jim Calhoun. They feuded until football got in the mix, but UConn benefited from having both of them.

But SB should always be reaching for the next level. Especially in sports where they can relatively easily. Lax and baseball are sports where SB can contend for national championships. That's what Spallina and Senk do, that's what everybody should be doing.

Well said- Danowski was my first choice but I certainly can't argue with this hire.

Any of these names were better than Nagle. Gilardi should be a very good fit. His offense at Towson was really good. I think the other thing that cannot be understated is that Gilardi should be able to open up a pipeline as well to some players from Maryland. His main job will be to keep good Long Island players home. Obviously we will still lose some of the top talent but there are enough good players here to make it work.

A skilled recruiter touted for player development, Gilardi said he’s already made calls to current players. The team’s top eight scorers return, so Gilardi has talent with which to work. “We’re attacking this from Day 1 the right way and getting those guys involved.”

This was the right choice IMO.   Many were  caught up with the Danowski name and I get it. But, Gilardi has the mid-major recruiting experience that ultimately helped get Towson to a Final  Four (what SB is starving for). Danowski brings the name but has he really  been battle tested while recruiting/coaching under his dad at an already elite Duke program?  These are the kinds of things that stand out during the interview process.

Right. It's not difficult to recruit at places like Duke or UVa, so getting top recruits to commit to programs like Towson (or SBU) says something good about a coach.

Hearing great things about the new coach. Clearly time for new blood and a different perspective.  Super hot yesterday and could not find anything on TV so I watched the UMBC playoff loss.  Frustrating watch. UMBC beat us soundly and deserved to win, they just made more plays, crazy though that a majority of the team statistics were relatively even. What I do not understand was why Walsh was out of the game for a majority of the 2nd quarter. Early in the quarter he makes a great look to Grippe at the end of the shot clock for a quality shot by Grippe. Score is 3-1 (we are still in the game) Walsh does not return until 3 minutes left and we are losing 8-1.  Offense was way off in the 2nd quarter and we made some bad turnovers, team played super tight in 2nd quarter and that comes from the coach. Why would you bench your best facilitator in a win or go home game??  Maybe that decision sent Nagle home. It's a shame, 1 really bad quarter is all it takes.  A lot of hard work by players and coaches end just like that. I would have liked to see this team win the AE championship. The regular season championship is nice but just not enough, this team should have done more. Let's get it in 20!! Wishing Coach Gilardi great success!!
