The University of Massachusetts announced late Friday afternoon that Angela McMahon-Serpone has stepped down as head coach of the women's lacrosse team after a 12-year tenure.
The winningest coach in program history is taking a full-time faculty position at nearby Deerfield Academy, where she will also be the head varsity lacrosse coach.
McMahon-Serpone (Weston, Mass.) led the Minutewomen to great heights in the Atlantic 10 conference, winning eight A-10 tournament titles, earning nine NCAA tournament berths and getting named Coach of the Year seven times.
This past season, UMass went 16-4 overall, winning the A-10 regular-season championship and earning an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, where it lost to Princeton in the first round, 15-9.
