Towson's Tony Seaman isn't going anywhere
The season may be over for the Tigers, but the same can’t be said for Tony Seaman’s coaching tenure at Towson.
The only coach in Division I history to aid three different schools to the NCAA tournament, Seaman was informed in a meeting Monday afternoon with school officials that he would be retained for at least another season.
"I’m just looking forward to having this team and my staff and myself back for 2010," said Seaman, who boasts an overall record of 253-148 (a winning percentage of .631) in 26 years and a mark of 89-75 (.543) in 11 years with the Tigers. "We couldn’t be happier to be part of the Towson lacrosse program."
Under Seaman, the Tigers have qualified for the NCAA tournament five times and almost won the Colonial Athletic Association tournament and the automatic qualifier last Saturday.
Towson, which finished second in the CAA and lost, 10-9, to Villanova in the tournament final, graduates seven players, including four starters in midfielders Randall Cooper and Justin Schneider, attackman Bill McCutcheon and defenseman Matt Richter, the team’s primary faceoff specialist in Mitchell Rosensweig and a primary short-stick defensive midfielder in Kyle Smedley.
But the Tigers return a good deal of youthful talent and could challenge again for the CAA title.
