Terry Mangan begins his tenth season as the head coach of the Lafayette men's lacrosse team. Mangan is the 18th head coach in the program's 72-year history.
Last season, Mangan coached All-Patriot League Second Team selection Tom Perini. Perini was also named to the USILA Scholar All-America Team.
In 2010, Mangan was named Patriot League Coach of the Year, guiding Lafayette to its first Patriot League Tournament berth in school history. The Leopards were ranked in both top-20 polls, as high as No. 8, for eight consecutive weeks throughout the 2010 season.
He led Lafayette to its first wins over nationally-ranked opponents (Navy and Bucknell) and first victory in school history over Navy. It was also the best finish for the program since 1984.
He developed Steve Serling into the 2010 Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year and saw two other players (Perini and Kevin Dunbar) named to the All-Patriot League teams.
The Leopards were the sixth-best scoring offense in the nation throughout the 2010 campaign and ranked fifth in assists per game, showcasing its well-publicized unselfish attack.
In 2009, the Leopards just missed a Patriot League tournament berth, taking the short end of a tiebreaker with Army after the Leopards defeated Lehigh in the season finale. Mangan led Jeff Canfield '09 to his second-consecutive All-Patriot League Second-Team appearance and guided Tom Perini to being ranked the nation's best in goals per game.
Mangan came to Lafayette after spending two seasons as an assistant at the University of Massachusetts. His responsibilities included assisting with the offense, working with the goaltenders and coordinating face-offs. UMass finished first in the nation in scoring offense in 2002 and second in scoring in 2001. In 2001, he coached an All-American goalie and face-off man that was second nationally in winning percentage. In his two years at UMass, the Minutemen posted a combined record of 24-6 and advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals in 2002.
Prior to his stint at UMass, Mangan worked as an assistant coach at Hobart College from 1996 to 2000. He was the defensive coordinator and goalkeeper coach at Hobart and helped guide the team to two NCAA Tournament appearances and the 2000 Patriot League championship.
Mangan led a pair of All-Americans at Hobart, while in 2000, three of his defensemen collected All-Patriot League honors.
Mangan's other collegiate coaching experience includes time at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Maryland-Baltimore County and Washington College (Md.). He also spent two years as the head coach at Archbishop Spalding High School (Md.), where he earned Anne Arundel Sun Boys Lacrosse Coach of the Year honors.
Mangan is the President of the Men's Coaches Council of USLacrosse and also serves on its Board of Directors.
A 1988 graduate of Roanoke College, Mangan earned four varsity letters at the goalkeeper position and guided his team to the NCAA Tournament all four years.
