Chad Moore Resigns As W&J Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach
WASHINGTON, Pa. – Washington & Jefferson College Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach Chad Moore announced his resignation on Monday after nine seasons with the Presidents’ program.
Moore, the second head men’s lacrosse coach in school history, helped W&J win 40 games during his tenure, including back-to-back winning seasons in 2009 and 2010. The 2009 squad won eight games to establish the school record.
“We would like to thank Coach Moore for his contributions to Washington & Jefferson College and our men’s lacrosse student-athletes,” said Director of Athletics Bill Dukett. “We appreciate his hard work in helping to build our men’s lacrosse program and we wish him great success in his future.”
Moore played an important role in the development of Andrew Wallick, who will graduate this spring as the Presidents’ all-time leading scorer with 177 points (99 goals, 78 assists). This season’s goalie, junior Ran Kirby, has also become the program’s career goalie saves leader with 503.
“I would like thank Bill Dukett, former Director of Athletics Rick Creehan and former President Brian Mitchell for this opportunity and wish the program well in the future,” said Moore.
Dukett announced a search for the Presidents’ next head coach would begin immediately.
