Aug. 26, 2008
EASTON, Pa. - Lafayette head women's lacrosse coach Alison Fisher has announced Jordan Ellis will be joining her staff as an assistant coach. Ellis comes to the Leopards with both playing and coaching experience at his alma mater, Yale. Ellis will work primarily with the goalkeepers and defense and will also assist in recruiting, practice planning and game preparation.
"I am thrilled to welcome Jordan to our staff," Fisher said. "He is passionate about the sport of lacrosse and he brings with him a diverse knowledge given his experience in both the men's and women's game. Jordan's presence rounds out a tremendous staff for Lafayette in 2009 and we are confident that he will work exceptionally hard to challenge our student-athletes and help us to move the program forward."
A native of Radnor, Pa., Ellis was a member of Yale's varsity men's lacrosse team. He earned the starting goalkeeper position as a freshman in 2004 and led the Ivy League in saves per game that season. In his final year at Yale in 2007, he served as a volunteer assistant coach for the women's lacrosse team. That squad finished with a 13-4 overall record en route to a No. 11 national ranking. The Bulldogs also made their third NCAA appearance in program history that year.
Ellis graduated from Yale with distinction in 2007 with a degree in History. He played high school lacrosse at Radnor where he was an All-America goalkeeper for the Raiders.
