Eastern's Childs Resigns, Takes the Reins at York

St. Davids, Pa. -- Eastern University head men's lacrosse coach Brandon Childs announced his resignation from Eastern to accept the same position at York College of Pennsylvania.

Since taking over leadership of the Eastern program in the fall of 2008, Childs led the Eagles to three straight appearances in the Middle Atlantic Conference Tournament a 28-19 overall record. Prior to Childs, Eastern University Men's Lacrosse had never had a winning season. The Eagles were 18-4 in league games over the past two years.

He will take over leadership of a York team that finished third in the Capital Conference in 2011. He and his wife and daughter will be closer to family in Maryland and Central Pennsylvania.

"Brandon Childs is one of the brightest young coaches in college lacrosse," said Eastern Athletic Director Brad Fields, "so it comes as no surprise to me that he is highly sought-after. While I am saddened to say goodbye to Brandon, Anne, and Ellie, I am happy for them personally as they now have the opportunity to move closer to family. What Brandon did for Eastern Lacrosse over the past three seasons is amazing, and I sincerely thank him for molding our young men in a life-changing way while pursuing, and achieving, excellence on the field and in the classroom."

"With Eastern Lacrosse now a legitimate contender for a MAC Championship, we will start an aggressive search to identify the person that will lead us to the realization of that goal."
