Editor’s note: Please welcome GameChanger (and coach Bill Tierney) to LaxAllStars! GameChanger has developed an amazing new app called Team Manager, which we encourage every lacrosse team administrator to try. The folks at GC love lacrosse, and we’re pumped to have them on board as our partner. We hope you enjoy their podcast!
GC Lax Podcast host Joe Yevoli was fortunate enough to get to pick the brain of legendary lacrosse mind, Coach Bill Tierney.
Just incase you’re not familiar, Coach T has earned himself a spot on the Mt. Rushmore of lacrosse coaches. From ’88 to ’09 he served as the skipper for the historic Princeton Tigers before relocating to Denver, Colorado to uncover the potential of the DU Pioneers and lacrosse in the West.
Coach Bill Tierney was a 2x NCAA All-American and a winner of the USILA National Championship as a player before winning 6 National titles as a coach. All this, and so much more, earned himself in multiple lacrosse hall of fames including the US Lacrosse HOF in Baltimore, MD.
In this episode Joe talks to Coach Bill Tierney about things like how he got started with coaching, who he modeled his coaching style after, and how he developed the Princeton Defense.
What more of an introduction do you need? Listen for yourself!
