PCLL News: Gray Resigns From NU

From Northeastern coach Tim Gray has announced he will be leaving the Huskies this spring and that assistant coach Joe Brady will replace him as head coach.

“Leaving NU was a very difficult decision, but the job opportunity in California was too much to pass up,” said Gray.

Coach Gray had an overall record of 65-32 with the Huskies, who he lead to the National Tournament for three years in a row from 2005-2007. A former Pioneer Collegiate Lacrosse League (PCLL) Coach of the Year, Gray’s players over the years have included 43 all-league PCLL selections and 14 MCLA All Americans.

The Huskies also won a pair of PCLL titles (2005 and 2006) under Gray.

Read the rest of the story here.

Coach Gray has had a tremendous impact on the PCLL and Northeastern University, an impact that stretches far beyond his win/loss record as a head coach. He was a working member of the PCLL board, as well as most recently secretary of the MCLA. Gray was well respected among players and coaches within the conference, specifically with our Head Coach, Jake Sullivan.

The man replacing Gray will be Joe Brady, who happens to be an alum of the same Walpole High School as myself, and a longtime friend of mine within the lacrosse community. So I'm here to extend the best of luck to Gray, Brady, and the Northeastern Huskies. (Except for when they come to Durham, of course.)
