Grand Valley Declines to Renew Murle Greer's Contact

Grand Valley State University's Men's Lacrosse team announced today that it will not renew 2010 CCLA Division 2 Coach of the Year Murle Greer's contact for the 2011 season. This news comes a month after the Lakers had an early exit in the National Tournament quarterfinals.

Murle leaves Grand Valley after a three-year career and a 49-10 record. Murle gained 2008 MCLA Coach of the Year honors after coaching the Lakers to a National Championship appearance and a CCLA conference title. Murle's Lakers appeared in two National Tournaments in three years.

Rising junior captain Dan Mac Donell had this to say on the decision: "Murle is a great coach. He raised this team from the ashes and brought the program to where it stands today. Murle always wanted what was best for the team. I hope he realizes this needed to happen to get where we want to be, and that's winning Conference and National Championships on an annual basis." In reference to the Detroit Pistons 2003 coaching change, Dan said "Murle was our Rick Carlisle; were now looking for our Larry Brown."

"We would like to personally thank Murle Greer for all the hard work, sacrifice, and dedication he has shown Grand Valley State University Men's Lacrosse over the past three years. We wish him the best of luck on his future endeavors in life and in lacrosse and hope he will stay an avid fan and supporter of Grand Valley State University Men's Lacrosse."

The process now begins for the Lakers to name a new head coach.
