Inside Lacrosse: Siena's Brecht to be named Rutgers coach

Brian Brecht of Siena will be named men's lacrosse coach at Rutgers today, according to Inside Lacrosse, citing sources.

Dave Cottle, former Maryland coach, interviewed for the job last week, as did former Navy coach Richie Meade, who removed himself from consideration. Cottle was thought to be the frontrunner.

In January, Cottle was named president of the Chesapeake Bayhawks and also serves as an assistant coach to the defending Major League Lacrosse champions.

Brecht has been coach of Siena for seven years and led the Saints to NCAA Tournament appearances in 2009 and 2011. Siena was 13-5 last season and has gone 65-49 under Brecht.
