Finlay Named Notre Dame Men's Lacrosse Assistant

NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- JIM FINLAY, assistant men's lacrosse coach at Springfield College since 1995, has been named to a similar position at the University of Notre Dame it was announced today by Irish coach KEVIN CORRIGAN. FINLAY, who will work with the Irish defensemen, replaces Steve Ciccarone who resigned in June to pursue other interests.

A native of Windsor, Conn., FINLAY served as top assistant and defensive coordinator at Springfield College for the past three seasons. During his tenure there, the Pride compiled a 25-16 record. In 1995, Springfield posted a 13-1 mark and advanced to the championship game of the NCAA Division II tournament. In addition to planning and organizing the team's defensive gameplan, FINLAY also coordinated Springfield's recruiting and scouting efforts.

FINLAY began playing lacrosse when he transferred to Gettysburg College and was a member of the men's lacrosse team from 1990-92. A defenseman, he was a three-year letterwinner on teams that compiled a 33-9 overall mark, won two Middle Atlantic Conference.

He received a bachelor of arts in history and classical studies from Gettysburg in 1992 and recently earned a master of physical education and athletic administration from Springfield College.

"Jim is a great addition to our staff," Corrigan says. "We're very fortunate to get someone with his experience, maturity and knowledge of the game. He'll do a good job working with our defensemen."
