Yale’s Shay named coach of the year: Yale men’s lacrosse coach Andy Shay has been named the United States In­ter­col­le­giate Lacrosse As­so­ci­a­tion 2018 Coach of the Year.

Shay and the Bull­dogs put to­gether a school-best 17-3 sea­son that in­cluded an Ivy League cham­pi­onship be­fore beat­ing four lacrosse pow­ers in the NCAA tour­na­ment to claim Yale’s first na­tional cham­pi­onship.

“This is an honor that is a re­flec­tion of the best as­sis­tant coaches a head coach could imag­ine, as well as the most over­achiev­ing team. It’s hard to be­lieve I de­serve a sin­gu­lar award when I think of what all the peo­ple in our pro­gram did,” Shay said in a re­lease from the school.

The last nine sea­sons un­der Shay have been his­toric for the pro­gram on many lev­els. The Bull­dogs have gone 103-40 with eight 10-win sea­sons, while their .700 win­ning per­cent­age is a pro­gram best.
