They lose their top six scorers and top six assist leaders.

I don't know that's such a bad thing. It lets her put her stamp on the team early and next year would be tough no matter who was coaching. She comes with rave reviews from some highly respected coaches with her relentless recruiting being cited as a strength.

Go FIghtin' Blue Hens!

Based on her resume, the new Women's Lax HC experience is defensively oriented. Which is better in a Women's lax HC, defensive or offensive orientation, or does it matter at all? The new HC should hire an assistant HC whose experience is offensively oriented. I will be interested in her assistant coaching hires.

Believe me, goalkeepers know offense.

Sally, i get what you are saying about her experience as a goalie, but she was in charge of Penn State's Defense. Not sure that such a background prepares you to identitfy & recruit good offensive talent and to design & run an effective offense. Seems to me someone who has good experience on, and running, an offense should be hired as the top assistant.

Every new head coach must assess their strengths and weaknesses and build their staff accordingly. All I was saying was that goalkeepers are usually very proficient in their knowledge of what makes offenses go...even if they do prefer coaching from the crease rather than the sideline. Like I did. :)
