Kevin Murray Joins Clemson as Assistant Lacrosse Coach

Clemson, SC: Clemson men's lacrosse is pleased to announce that Kevin Murray has joined the program as an assistant coach focusing on the Tiger defense. Murray, a Massachusetts native, graduated from Charlotte Catholic in North Carolina and played collegiately for St. Vincent, an NCAA D-III program in Latrobe, PA. Murray saw the field all 4 years at St. Vincent and was a starter at close defense his junior and senior years. Murray is a second year graduate student in Mechanical Engineering at Clemson.

"We're very pleased to have Kevin join us on the sidelines this year," said Clemson head coach Buff Grubb. "We anticipate that defense will be a strength of this year's team and being able to take advantage of Kevin's experience and expertise in this regard will help elevate that end of the field all the more. Kevin will assist defense coordinator Mike French with team defense and we've asked him to focus on individual technique as well. That's one of the luxuries that having a deep coaching staff allows and we want to take full advantage of it."

Clemson men's lacrosse concludes its 2012 Fall Ball season by hosting its 6th annual Southern Comfort Tournament at Nettles' Park in Clemson on Saturday, 10/27 and Sunday, 10/28.
