leave a comment »

On September 30, 2009 three year assistant Rob Cross left UMBC to take a job as the assistant head coach at Harvard, specializing in offense, an area that UMBC has done very well in the last few years. With the open position Don Zimmerman went on a search for a replacement and today he found on- former Retriever attack Andy Gallagher, who will begin on Nov. 9, 2009.

Since August 2008 Gallagher has been serving as the Director of Student Activities and assistant boys’ lacrosse coach at DeMathan Catholic High School, his alma mater.

While at UMBC Gallagher came back from ACL tears in his freshman and sophomore seasons to be named an All-American for his senior year in 2007, which was the season he led UMBC to it’s first-ever NCAA tournament win after scoring 35 goals and 51 points that year.

He has scored 146 points in his career, good for 11th all-time at UMBC. In 2005 as a sophomore he was named first-team All-America East, and was named to the second-team in 2007.
