Closing in a men's lax coach (...maybe)

Is it three? How about five? Maybe four? Just how many finalists are there for the men's lax job? Inside Lacrosse updated its blog this morning to say it could be any one of those numbers...or maybe even a different one.

IL is sticking by reports from earlier this week that Mike Murphy (Haverford), Chris Bates (Drexel) and Dan Sheehan (LeMoyne) are still on the shortlist. Now there are rumors that "at least one or two other candidates" are interviewing for the job.

The list is also growing of coaches who have withdrawn their names from consideration. Way back on June 19, UAlbany coach Scott Marr announced he was no longer interested in the top job at Princeton. Yesterday, news came Army coach Joe Alberici had decided to stay at West Point. And today, we hear that Stony Brook coach Ricky Sowell -- who The Prox never knew was in the running -- is no longer being considered.

Murphy is the guy. Articulate, well educated...great lacrosse pedigree...loved by his players.

Fourth name in the mix....R.Meade. Denver has set the market for coaching superstars. Will the Tiger lax alumni pay the freight for a legend?
