On this week’s episode of New England Lacrosse Journal’s “Chasing The Goal” podcast, hosts Kyle Devitte and Jack Piatelli were joined by University of Hartford head coach Ryan Martin.
Martin has guided the Hawks since the summer of 2016. He is currently in the process of reconstructing the team as the school has moved from Division 1 to Division 3. A native of Amherst, Mass., Martin starred as a goalie at Ithaca College before entering the coaching ranks.
He spent his first season as an assistant at Hampden-Sydney before moving to RPI in 2016. He then embarked on a successful run as the top assistant at Nazareth, where he helped the Golden Flyers to two Empire 8 Championships and NCAA Division 3 Tournament berths in 2007 and 2009. He then went on to serve as the head coach at SUNY Oswego for four seasons before heading to Hartford as an assistant in 2015.
