Tufts University's Mike Daly has accepted an offer to become the next Brown University men's lacrosse head coach.
Mike Daly, who was in charge of the three NCAA Championships of the Tufts University men's lacrosse program, will replace Lars Tiffany as the Brown University Bears' head coach.
When the University of Virginia on June 21 hired Tiffany as head coach, he immediately resigns. Brown University, which is an Ivy League research university, set a record for wins last season at 16-3 and the institution advanced to the NCAA semi-finals, Go Tufts Jumbos reported.
John Morris, Tufts Director of Athletics, said that with everything Daly has accomplished over the years at the Tufts University, it's not a surprise that Daly will be offered a coaching position in Division I.
Morris also said that they are sorry to see Daly go, and they are grateful for Daly's many contributions to Tufts Athletics during his 18 years as the head coach of men's lacrosse.
Since 1963, Daly will now become the sixth Brown University men's lacrosse coach. Daly will grasp Brown University's program that advanced to the final four and won the Ivy League championship for the second straight season, based on the report of Lax Magazine.
Brown University athletic director - Jack Hayes, stated that Daly is a terrific coach and has a proven track record of success. Hayes also said that Daly has experience recruiting quality student-athletes who were excelling equally in sports and in academics.
During the time of Daly as head coach at Tufts, he posted a record of 244-83 in 18 seasons - with 9 appearances in the NCAA Tournament and seven titles in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). Daly's team took home national championships in 2010, 2014 and 2015.
And coach Daly is considered to be one of the top 10 active coaches for winning percentage and is in the top 20 for victories.
