Andrew Whitley, the former All-Centennial Conference goalie and Wesleyan assistant coach, joined the Yale staff in the fall of 2006. Whitley, who served as Wesleyan's defensive coordinator from 1997-2000, came to the Bulldogs after four seasons (2003-06) as an assistant at Hopkins School, where he helped the Hilltoppers win their first ever conference title in 2006. He was named Fairchester Athletic Association Assistant Coach of the Year in 2005 and earned the Sportsmanship Award from the Connecticut Lacrosse Officials Association that same season. At Wesleyan, Whitley helped his team qualify for two ECAC tournaments while working with the defense and goaltenders. Whitley also coordinated the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association weekly polls and post-season all-star teams from 1999-2004. He attended both Alfred University and Franklin & Marshall College, earning the Diplomat Award for character and leadership in 1996 from the latter. Whitley, who earned his degree in sociology from F&M in 1996, was a two-time all-conference selection and played in the 1993, 1994 and 1995 NCAA Tournaments. Whitley, who lives in Norwalk with his wife, Sally Freedman, is a managing partner in a small investment company called Ankeny Homes, LLC.
