LANCASTER -- Franklin & Marshall has hired Mike Faith as women's lacrosse head coach, the school announced Wednesday.
The addition of Faith comes three months after F&M dismissed head coach Lauren Hall and kicked eleven players off its team due to hazing allegations.
Faith previously coached at Elizabethtown College, where he took the Blue Jays to seven conference championship tournaments, including five trips to the finals and two MAC championships. He was named MAC Coach of the Year in 2007 and 2010 as Elizabethtown made its way through the conference schedule with an unblemished mark.
Faith compiled a 97-48 mark at Elizabethtown, including a 65-14 record in conference play.
"This is a great opportunity to work at one of the finest educational institutions in the country," Faith said in a statement. "I'm very excited about this new chapter in my coaching career, and I'm looking forward to leading one of the most successful women's lacrosse programs in Division III."
Faith coached 44 All-Conference selections at Etown, including four MAC Players of the Year and two Rookies of the Year. In addition, 20 All-Region selections and four IWCLA All-Americans were awarded during Faith's tenure there.
"Coach Faith will be an inspirational leader on the field and in the lives of F&M's student-athletes," Franklin & Marshall Director of Athletics and Recreation Patricia S.W. Epps said in a statement. "He has demonstrated the ability to build a successful and competitive athletic program with integrity and excellence, and I look forward to Coach Faith joining the other fine educators in this college community."
