Utah Utes LacrosseFor Immediate Release – Utah Men’s Lacrosse

SALT LAKE CITY – The University of Utah Men’s Lacrosse team announced today that Brian Holman has been hired as the head coach and will be taking the reigns effectively immediately. With the hire, the team moves into preparation mode in hopes of becoming the newest school to add men’s lacrosse at a Division I level.

Holman has spent the last 8 years as an assistant coach at North Carolina with varying responsibilities. Fresh off the heels of a National Championship, his most noted position was that of goalkeeper coach but also ran the substitution box and helped coordinate the offense with main offensive coordinator David Metzbower. Holman also oversaw all UNC camps & clinics which grew exponentially during his tenure.

“I’d like to thank Joe Breschi for allowing me be a part of the Carolina lacrosse family,” said Holman. “Honestly it was one of the greatest experiences in my life. It was an honor to coach at such a great institution and coaching great young men and will be an experience I will carry with me the rest of my life.”

Utah Utes LacrosseThe last four days have been a firestorm of rumors and gossip surrounding the University of Utah men’s lacrosse program. Seemingly conflicting reports, speculation, and the unreliable nature of social media information has grabbed lacrosse fans’ attention across the nation and created a new buzz about the growth and direction of lacrosse in Utah and in the West.

While we want to be clear that it’s all just rumor and speculation at this point, we felt it was important to make sure that the Utah lacrosse community is up to speed on what’s being said as it could greatly change the landscape of lacrosse in our state. We’ve heard some rumors and confirmed some truths as well, but we want to wait until everything is official and everything announced. So, we’re going to try to walk you through what’s known and what’s been said up to this point:

The first piece to the puzzle came way back on June 6, when it looked like college lacrosse’s all-time winningest coach, Dom Starsia, was being let go by Virginia. In an interview in the Baltimore Sun he said “I look forward to seeing what the next great adventure will be.” Starsia mentioned that he recently entertained a job opportunity in Utah, which he discussed with his wife Krissy. “My wife said to me, ‘Hey, we’re not moving to Utah.’ I said, ‘Twenty-five years ago, you said we weren’t moving to Charlottesville.’”

Storm LacrossePaul Rabil is a name known far and wide in the lacrosse world, and with good reason — he’s a 4x collegiate All-American, 2x NCAA national champion, World Lacrosse Championship MVP, and 2x Major League Lacrosse MVP, among many other accolades. So, when we found out that Storm Lacrosse was bringing in this very special camper for their summer lacrosse camp, we had to know more.

-How did you get Paul Rabil to come out for the camp?
We first began working with Paul through the Paul Rabil Experience and have a great relationship with him. Here at Storm, we’re looking for ways to help players from Utah and the surrounding areas experience lacrosse at the highest level, and Paul is eager to help us with that endeavor.

-What makes the Storm Camp unique?
Our camp will focus heavily on individual player development and ‘Lacrosse IQ.’ Many camps are scrimmage heavy; we will spend a lot of time on general station drills for overall development. We will also be utilizing the Paul Rabil Experience program to arm players with skills they need to develop their game after they go home.

East LogoThe East High School Lacrosse program is seeking a new head coach after coach Ryan Cantwell has taken the head coaching spot at Bingham High School. Cantwell played for the Miners in high school before playing his college ball at Utah Valley State College/Utah Valley University.

“We did have a good season this year,” said Coach Cantwell, “In fact, the past 3 have been so much fun and successful. It was hard to leave but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to coach at my alma mater.”

Under Cantwell, the East Leopard boys went a combined 28-24 in three seasons, with appearances in the D-II and Class-B playoff quarterfinals all three years. He’ll be taking over a Bingham Miner program that went 11-12 this season and made the Class-B semifinals as the No. 1 seed. The Miners made the Class-A playoffs last season and were designated a D-I program before that.
