La Roche Names Sean Doyle as Assistant Lacrosse Coach

Pittsburgh, PA Anthony Stamatopoulos, La Roche College head men's lacrosse coach, is pleased to announce the hiring of All-ECAC performer Sean Doyle (Rochester, NY.) as the first assistant men's lacrosse coach.

"I'm very pleased and excited to have Sean join our staff. There isn't any hesitation in saying that he will bring a lot of passion and energy to our program. In the short time he has been part of the organization, Sean has already proven himself to be a major contributor to the La Roche College men's lacrosse family."

Stamatopoulos added, "As a relatively recent graduate and as one of the most highly decorated players in the history of Bellarmine University I knew he would bring a unique perspective to the program. In addition, I knew that he played under one of the most respected coaches in the game (Jack McGetrick) and played for a man that I admired very much. I recognized right away that Sean was a diligent worker and with his background I knew that Sean had a firm grasp in understanding what it takes to compete at the highest levels of D-III college lacrosse."

As Stamatopoulos alluded to, Doyle is coming off an illustrious lacrosse career, which ended at Bellarmine University in Louisville, KY. Under coach McGetrick at Bellarmine, Doyle led the team in scoring both his junior and senior years. He earned All ECAC Player of the Week honors, and was voted to 2nd Team All ECAC.

He finished as one of the programs best amassing 84 points on 64 goals and 16 assists in two years. He was an outstanding defender as well causing over 50 turnovers. Coach Doyle began his college lacrosse career at Herkimer Community College, where he was voted to the All-Tournament Team 2 years in row, and was named 2nd Team All-American his sophomore season.

"Coaching college lacrosse is something I've always wanted to do, and La Roche College provided the perfect opportunity for me to pursue my dream. The last two years of my life really cemented this career path, especially while watching what coach McGetrick went through. It was amazing to see how many people he impacted through the years in a positive way. Those experiences not only inspired me to coach, but have motivated me to make this dream a reality," said Doyle.

"It's been great not only getting the opportunity to coach at La Roche College, but being a part of a school and program that is really doing things the right way. I'm really looking forward to this challenge, and would like to thank coach Stamatopoulos for giving me this opportunity," Doyle responded.

Note: This comes at a tough time for Doyle. His coach at Bellarmine, Jack McGetrick, passed away Saturday, Oct. 9th after a long and courageous battle with cancer. The La Roche College men's lacrosse program extends its deepest sympathies to Coach McGetrick's family and friends during this time.
