Lawicki Named Denver Women's Assistant Coach
from press release
DENVER - University of Denver women's lacrosse head coach Liza Kelly announced today the addition of Matt Lawicki as an assistant coach.
"Matt comes to us after finding success at two great programs within two top conferences," Kelly said. "I am excited to implement Matt's offensive schemes into our attack and utilize his draw expertise. He is a skilled recruiter who will help us continue to bring in great student-athletes."
Lawicki was the first assistant coach at Louisville from 2006-11, serving as recruiting coordinator and offensive coordinator. Under Lawicki's guidance, the Cardinals ranked second in the nation in draw controls and among the top 10 in scoring offense in 2010 and 2011. Lawicki was also owner and director of Louisville Elite Lacrosse Club.
"I'd like to thank Liza and the DU Athletic Department for this great opportunity, and I look forward to building upon their vision for lacrosse at Denver, reaching new heights on the field and in the classroom," Lawicki said. "I am honored to join the DU family. From the moment I stepped on campus, I could tell that Denver was a very special place, offering students a world-class education and giving them a truly unique lacrosse experience. The shared community vision for lacrosse and the focus on a true student-athlete drew me to DU."
Prior to his tenure at Louisville, Lawicki was an assistant coach at both James Madison, which advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals in 2006, and Davidson College. Lawicki began his career by coaching the club team at his alma mater, California Polytechnic State University, guiding the team to three-straight U.S. Lacrosse WDIA national championships from 2002-04.
