Andrew Stimmel

Andrew Stimmel was named the second head coach in Marquette University men's lacrosse history on Friday, June 14, 2019.

“Andrew is one of the rising stars in the lacrosse world and we are thrilled to know that he will be leading the Marquette men’s lacrosse program,” said Marquette Vice President and Director of Athletics Bill Scholl. “He cares greatly about the student-athlete experience, believes deeply in Marquette and our values and he can flat out coach. He has been a winner at every stop along the way and we expect that to continue in Milwaukee. We are proud to welcome Andrew, his wife Vanessa, and sons, JJ and Rhys, back to the Marquette family.”

Stimmel, who was an assistant at Marquette in 2016, has spent each of the last three seasons as the offensive coordinator at Yale, which he helped lead to the 2018 NCAA National Championship and a runner-up finish in 2019. The national title was Yale’s first in 135 years and the squad has posted historic offensive production with Stimmel guiding the attack.

The Bulldogs scored 574 goals over the last two seasons, a mark which places them third in NCAA Division I history over a two-year span. In addition to scoring a program-record 296 times in 2019 (No. 7 all-time), the 2018 NCAA Champions scored 278 goals, led by Tewaaraton Award winner and USILA First Team All-American Ben Reeves.

Including his time at Marquette, Stimmel has coached in the NCAA tournament in each of the last five seasons and advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals as a student-athlete in 2008.

Since his return to New Haven for the 2017 campaign, Yale has notched an overall record of 42-13, won an Ivy League Tournament crown in 2017 posted a regular season record of 17-2 in league action. In addition to Reeves, Stimmel has worked at Yale with double-digit USILA All-Americans, including TD Ierlan, Jackson Morrill, Conor Mackie, Jack Tigh, Michael Quinn, Tyler Warner, Christopher Keating, Mark Gilcini, Michael Keasy. He has also mentored numerous professional lacrosse draft picks during his career.

He was tabbed in January to serve as an assistant coach of the United States Men’s Under-19 Team at the 2020 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championships in Limerick, Ireland next summer. He will assist head coach Nick Myers, under whom he played as a collegian at Ohio State.
