Bo Lori

Bo Lori is in his first season with the Marquette University men’s lacrosse program in 2021-22 as an assistant coach.

“Bo emerged out of a deep and talented candidate pool as someone we feel identifies directly with our guys and aligns perfectly with our program and greater university mission” Stimmel said. “In speaking with coaches and former players, it was apparent that Coach Lori is an incredible connector and relationship builder.”

Lori comes to Marquette after three seasons on Lars Tiffany’s staff at Virginia, where he served as a volunteer assistant coach and helped the Cavaliers win the 2019 NCAA Championship.

“Outside of his impressive track record as a young rising star in our profession, the number one thing that stuck out to me was how highly his former players spoke of him,” Stimmel said. “They loved playing for him and have a deep trust in his ability to make them better as athletes and people. We are thrilled to welcome Coach Lori to the Marquette Family!”

While at Virginia, Lori worked primarily on the defensive side with Tiffany, coaching a 2019 squad that led the nation in ground balls per game (41.55) and limited opponents to one of the nation’s lowest clearing efficiencies (71.1 percent – No. 2 in NCAA). That team was one of only two nationally in the top-20 on offense and defense and its 3.85 scoring margin ranked fourth nationally and tops in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to join the Marquette Lacrosse family,” Lori said “In only a few short years as a program, it is remarkable how quickly Marquette has put its stamp on Division I lacrosse. The rapid growth of the program speaks volumes to the leadership at the helm of Marquette Athletics, as well as the hard work and dedication of those who have put a Marquette jersey over their shoulders. I could not be more excited to join Coach Stimmel, Coach (Jake) Richard, and the rest of the staff in the pursuit of excellence at Marquette.”

Lori was a three-year member of the lacrosse program at Ohio State and an integral part of the short-stick defensive midfield unit, appearing in all but one game from 2016-18. The Buckeye teams that Lori was a part of were known for their tough and tenacious defensive play, leading the Big Ten Conference in goals against average in both 2017 (8.38 GAA) and 2018 (8.52 GAA). Lori was also a member of Ohio State’s winningest class in program history with 43 career wins.
