On this week’s episode of New England Lacrosse Journal’s “Chasing The Goal” podcast, hosts Kyle Devitte and Jack Piatelli were joined by RPI head coach Scott Hackett-Dalgliesh.
Hackett-Dalgliesh is entering his fifth year in charge of the Engineers. He took over in the summer of 2018 and led the team to a 12-5 record in his debut season.
He landed at RPI after successful stints as an assistant coach at Dartmouth, UMass Lowell and Brown. He also served as the head coach for Marywood University, a Division 3 program in Scranton, Pa., for three years, posting two 10-win seasons.
Last year, RPI defeated eventual D-3 national champion (and fellow Liberty League member) RIT, 13-12, in the regular season. Though the Engineers couldn’t repeat the feat in the playoffs, they still finished with a record of 10-6.
