Early this afternoon, the RMU men’s lacrosse program and head coach Andrew McMinn announced that the team will be welcoming a new member to their coaching staff for the 2015 season. Former Bryant attackman Travis Harrington has been hired as an assistant coach according to the RMU Athletics website.

Harrington spent four seasons (2009-2013) with the Bulldogs, recording a total of 104 points, 67 goals and 37 assists. During his time at Bryant, Harrington completed his Bachelor’s degree in accounting, before moving on to his rookie coaching gig at Seton Hill University.

In 2013, Harrington worked closely with the attack and midfield positions, devoted time to work with teams’ goaltenders, faceoff groups, and the even and extra-man offensive squads. Not only was he valued on the field, but he also spent time working with the recruitment of players.

During his two-year stay at SHU the team excelled with one of the best offenses in the Division II programs. While completing with winning records both season and capturing their first NCCA Tournament run in the 2013 season.

Seton Hill also had several big moments for their players, including seven All-Eastern College Athletic Conferences II-Team honorees.

The addition of Harrington will surely benefit a young Colonials roster looking to rebound from last season.
