UPDATE: Number of lax finalists down to three

And then there were three.

That's the word coming from Inside Lacrosse this morning, when it reported Army head coach Joe Alberici has withdrawn his name from consideration and is no longer a candidate become the next men's lacrosse head coach.

IL still believes (from left to right) Haverford coach Mike Murphy, Drexel coach Chris Bates and LeMoyne coach Dan Sheehan are the three finalists for the position.

That means we may be down to just one candidate (Bates) who has been a head coach at the DI level. Murphy coaches Division III Haverford and MeMoyne Division II LeMoyne.

As The Prox reported yesterday, Princeton is believed to be conducting interviews in the next few days and could make a decision by the end of the week.
