This week brought big coaching news out of Utah and we discuss why and how the Chaos peak at the right time. We also discuss the coaching profession and how/why certain coaches get interviews.
Utah Lacrosse Hires McMinn
We love seeing guys that put in the time and created successful programs at the mid-major level get a shot at leading big time programs. While Utah is definitely in its infancy from a lacrosse standpoint, the prestige of the school is a major step up from Robert Morris in terms of support, resources, and academics. We’re excited to see what coach can do with the Utah program.
A little more about Coach McMinn
In his ten years as coach, he led the Colonials to consecutive Northeast Conference (NEC) Tournament championships, NCAA championship berths in both 2018 and 2019, and the NEC regular season title in 2012. During his time as head coach, the Colonials reached a school-record of 76 wins. McMinn was named NEC Coach of the Year in both 2012 and 2017, exiting the program as the winningest coach in school history.Alexis Davis, Robert Morris University
Chaos Peaking at Playoffs
We havent been the biggest supporters of the Chaos on the podcast but it’s not for a reason you might think. We love the players, we enjoy AT’s style, but the regular season Chaos are hard to root for or bet on because of their inconsistencies. These inconsistencies however, are exactly why the Chaos are consistently playoff ready. Coach Towers has made it clear that the early season is about culture, building a cohesive unit, and tinkering. As the weeks go by we see a better and more polished team that further embraces their team name, Chaos. This team is built to play fast a loose and to create literal chaos on the field.
No matter what the early season looks like, AT has the boys ready for playoffs.

- Can the Chaos create enough chaos to upset the Atlas?
