Resch Also Part of U.S. Staff
BALTIMORE, Md. – Andrew Stimmel, the offensive coordinator of the Yale Men's Lacrosse Team, has been named an assistant coach for the U.S. Men's U19 Team that will compete for the 2020 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) Men's World Championship in Limerick, Ireland.
Stimmel joins his college coach Nick Myers (Ohio State), the U.S. Team head coach, as well as former Yale star Tony Resch '85, who will be serving as the team's assistant manager.
The former Buckeye captain and Yale assistant coach returned to the Bulldogs in the summer of 2016. Two years later, he and the Bulldogs were lifting the national championship trophy at Gillette Stadium celebrating the school's first NCAA Lacrosse title. Stimmel led the No. 2 ranked Yale offense (13.90 goals) through its historic Ivy League and national tournament run.
Stimmel was on the Yale staff for the 2014 and 2015 seasons before becoming assistant coach and defensive coordinator for the 2016 Marquette University men's team that won its first Big East title and was a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament before defeating No. 1 Denver.
His eighth ranked (8.13 goals against) defense was tops in the conference and helped his squad establish school records for wins (11), conference wins (6) and victories over Top 5 teams (#5 Villanova, #1 Denver).
Resch, the associate head coach at LaSalle College (Pa.) High School, has a deep connection to the U.S. National Team Program, most recently serving as an assistant coach for the 2018 U.S. men's senior team which won gold in Israel.
A two-time All-American at Yale, Resch was a player on the 1990 U.S. team, an assistant coach on the 2010 U.S. men's senior team and head coach of the 2015 U.S. indoor team. As a head coach, he was won four National Lacrosse League titles with the Philadelphia Wings and two Major League Lacrosse titles with the Philadelphia Barrage.
