Hofstra men’s lacrosse coach Seth Tierney has agreed to a multi-year contract extension to continue his coaching career with the Pride, Hofstra announced on its website. 

"For the past seven years, Seth has been an exceptional coach and an outstanding representative of Hofstra University,” said Director of Athletics Jeffrey A. Hathaway on the Hofstra Athletics website. 

Tierney is a 1987 graduate of MacArthur High School in Levittown and led the Generals to the Nassau County Lacrosse Championship Game in his senior year. He also has served as an assistant coach at Hofstra from 1995 through 2000 before leaving for a position at John Hopkins University.

Tierney became the fifth head coach in the history of the Hofstra Men's Lacrosse program in August 2006. Entering his eighth season in 2014, Tierney has led the Pride to 62 victories, the 2008 Colonial Athletic Association championship, the 2009 and 2011 CAA regular season titles and berths in four consecutive NCAA Championships from 2008 through 2011, according to the Hofstra athletics website. 

“His teams qualified for a school-record four consecutive NCAA Championship appearances and five CAA Championship Tournaments while continuing to achieve our primary mission of graduating outstanding student-athletes," Hathaway said.

"Off the field, he and his team provide a strong leadership presence in supporting many community and charitable endeavors," Hathaway said. We are excited to have Seth continue to lead our lacrosse program as we work towards our goals of CAA Championships and NCAA Championship play.”
