Shawn Nadelen

Head Coach, Towson University

In just his fifth season at the helm of the program, Shawn Nadelen led the Towson men's lacrosse team to its third Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) crown since 2012, winning the Tigers'  CAA-record sixth during the 2016 season. Now in his sixth year guiding the Tigers, Nadelen looks to continue to fill up the win column and trophy case at Towson.

Since Nadelen took over the program, Towson has amassed an overall record of 53-32 (.624). During the 2016 CAA Tournament, Nadelen collected the 50th win of his tenure, besting rival Drexel 10-6 in the semifinals. He became the fastest coach to win 50 Division I games at Towson and is the second-fastest to the mark including the program's Division II days.

For his efforts in guiding the Tigers to the 2016 CAA Regular Season title and the right to host the CAA Tournament, Nadelen was voted by his league peers as the 2016 CAA Coach of the Year, becoming just the second coach in the program's history to be named CAA Coach of the Year. Nadelen also saw then-junior Ryna Drenner voted as the program's second-ever CAA Co-Player of the Year, while Drenner's classmate, Jack Adams, was named USILA Third-Team All-America.

After earning the program's sixth berth to the NCAA Tournament as the CAA champion, the Tigers knocked off defending national champion and second-ranked Denver in the first round with a thrilling 10-9 win in the Mile High City. That victory set a new single-season program record as Towson won its 16th game. During that same season, Towson won a program-record 11 games from the friendly confines of Johnny Unitas Stadium.’s lacrosse team continues to grow under the leadership of Shawn Nadelen. Despite losing an All-American goalkeeper, he led the Tigers
to their second straight winning season in 2014, something that has not been done since 2006 and 2007.

Steve Grossi

Assistant Coach, Towson University

 aGrossi brings an impressive ledger with him to Towson. During his coaching career, he has mentored 12 All-Southern Conference selections, five All-Ivy League picks and seven First-Team All-Northeast Conference student-athletes. He has coached two man-down defenses to a first-place finish in the NCAA Statistical Rankings and has helped guide two overall scoring defenses to top-10 scoring percentages nationally.
For the 2017 and 2018 season, Grossi was the recruiting coordinator at Richmond as the Spiders captured the 2018 Southern Conference championship and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Grossi worked closely with the special teams and defense, developing fundamental skills and implementation of team-oriented defensive systems. In his first season working with Spider head coach Dan Chemotti, Grossi coached the 2017 SoCon Defensive Player of the Year while mentoring two All-Americans, including goalie Benny Pugh, a First Team USILA All-American in 2017.
