Sean Kirwan is one of the most creative offensive minds in lacrosse. After years of working as an offensive coordinator with Lars Tiffany at both Brown and the University of Virginia, Kirwan was named the head coach of Dartmouth earlier this summer.
Defensive coordinators across the Ivy League slammed their fists into their desks in frustration, just as their counterparts in the ACC celebrated the move.
It was a move that caused a seismic shift across the D-1 landscape. The Ivy League has become one of the best leagues in the country over the past decade and, to many, this move cemented the upward trajectory of the highest order of academia in the sport.
After a grueling summer of recruiting, moving his family and settling into the woods of Hanover, N.H. Kirwan finally had a chance to stop and chat all things Dartmouth with New England Lacrosse Journal.
