Erica LaGrow was announced as Yale’s Joel E. Smilow, Class of 1954 Head Coach of Women’s Lacrosse on July 1, 2015. Prior to joining the Bulldogs, the former US National Team member spent seven years as an assistant coach at Florida. LaGrow helped the Gators make five straight NCAA Tournament appearances, win five regular season conference championships and win three conference tournament championships. She also has a gold medal from the Women’s World Cup during her time playing with the National Team.
At Florida LaGrow worked under former Yale head coach Amanda O’Leary, a US Lacrosse Hall of Fame member who has earned a pair of national coach of the year honors. LaGrow was the Gators’ offensive coordinator and helped the team lead the nation in goals with 326 this past season -- the fourth straight season the Gators have scored at least 310 goals and finished in the top five nationally in scoring offense. In each of those seasons Florida’s attack has been remarkably balanced, featuring at least six different players with 20 or more goals and 35 or more points.
Coach LaGrow is the ninth head coach in the 40-year varsity history of Yale women’s lacrosse.
