Denison has announced the hiring of former Loyola University and Loyola High player Keith Euker and former Maryland assistant and player Fran Gormley as assistant coaches.
"We are really fortunate to hire two top-notch people and coaches in Keith Euker and Fran Gormley," said head coach Mike Caravana. "Their teaching and coaching skills, as well as their love of the game, came across very strongly in their interviews. They also come to us with strong references within the coaching ranks. I am confident they will help us maintain and grow our place among the nation's elite Division III men's lacrosse programs.
"With both coming from Division I backgrounds," Caravana continued, "they bring with them new ideas that are on the cutting edge of our sport. Their new ideas should really benefit our individual players and our program immediately. I want to thank Denison athletic director Nan Carney-DeBord, and her leadership team for showing the support needed to attract people of this caliber. They are both outstanding young men that will be wonderful representatives of Denison and our men's lacrosse program for years to come."
Euker most recently served as a volunteer goalie coach at Michigan for the past two seasons. He was the head coach at Missouri from 2009 to 2011. During his time in Columbia, he was named Great Rivers Lacrosse Coach of the Year (2011).
Gormley comes to Denison after a two-year stint at the director of lacrosse operations for the Terps. In 2011, he was named Maryland's Comeback Player of the Year.
