Wagner men’s lacrosse coach Matt Poskay has resigned to take the head coaching role at Montclair State, replacing the late Mike Schambach at the helm of the Division III program in New Jersey.
College Crosse first reported Poskay’s decision Thursday morning. A spokesperson at Wagner confirmed the news when reached by US Lacrosse Magazine.
Poskay, a two-time All-American midfielder at Virginia and 2010 Major League Lacrosse MVP with the Boston Cannons, has spent the last seven seasons as the head coach at Wagner, a Division I program in Staten Island, N.Y. The Seahawks, who compete in the Northeast Conference, compiled a 20-75 overall record in those seven seasons.
Poskay is a New Jersey native whose previous coaching stints included two seasons as an assistant at Division III Drew and a stop at his alma mater A.L Regional High School in Clark, N.J.
The Wagner spokesperson did not mention plans for Poskay’s successor. Gary DiClementi is the associate head coach and has spent four seasons on Grymes Hill. He previously spent seven years as a Division III assistant at Kenyon, Frostburg State and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.
Montclair State finished 9-6 last spring. Schambach, who led the Red Hawks to their first NCAA tournament victory in 2016, died June 14 after a nearly yearlong bout with colon cancer.
