The fact that one of the top players (Not to mention most recognizable and marketable) has such an interest in seeing the sport grow out here is just great. Just another domino falling on the way to D1 lax being played on the west coast. Can't wait for the day that I see Pac-10 lacrosse killin it out here! First Tierney, now Harrison.

Not to knock KH or the NCAA players – I'm glad to see them showing the MCLA some love and they're amazing at what they do. But Chapman was awesome and a solid contender without them there, right?

If he's only going to be there part time, and just at practices, will he really make a big impact? It sounds like he's been with the team pretty regularly for the past year or two. How is this different? Is he even a good coach? There's a lot more to coaching than being a good player. As he said himself, he's been pretty busy with all of his other commitments. How much time has he spent learning to be a coach? It's not like Chapman's offense was struggling. They may be the best offense in the MCLA. If he joined an NCAA staff out east, even if it was a team that is not as good as Chapman, it wouldn't be big news at all. But you would assume those teams would only take him if he could commit the time to be an every-day coach.
On a side note, I'm a little disappointed in the hype about the NCAA transfers to Chapman. Don't get me wrong. I think it's great that NCAA players are looking at MCLA opportunities. But the tone is almost too reverential. Like it's a big deal that these amazing NCAA players have opted to grace an MCLA team with their presence. There are a lot of former NCAA players in the MCLA. Some have made impacts. Some haven't. I thought the whole point was to establish the MCLA, and especially the best MCLA teams, as equal to some of the better NCAA teams. If that's really the case, then transfers like this aren't that big a deal.

Hasn't changed for the NFL (see San Diego Chargers at strip club the day before getting knocked out of the playoffs); probably won't ever fully change for lax either.
