Boston University announced on Thursday that former Holy Cross head coach Judd Lattimore would be joining their coaching staff as a volunteer assistant. Lattimore is a good addition to Boston U. as he has over fifteen years of college coaching experience.

Lattimore was fired at Holy Cross after being placed on administrative leave in March for allegedly making players run wind sprints at halftime of Holy Cross' game against Brown in which they lost. Because of that I wasn't sure he would be hired at any school in any capacity for at least a year, but it looks like Boston U has taken that leap of faith that other programs wouldn't.

Prior to his past four seasons at Holy Cross Lattimore spent time at Penn as the offensive coordinator in 2013. Lattimore also had coaching stints at Michigan, Bucknell, Delaware, and North Carolina.

As a player Lattimore played at North Carolina where he graduated in 2001 and was a two year starter for the tar Heels. His coaching career began Geneso State in 2002 before going to Limestone during the 2003 season.

Boston Head Coach Ryan Polley said, "We're excited to welcome Judd to Boston University. He has been successful at every school he has coached, including some of the top programs in the country, and his experience will be invaluable. Our young men will benefit greatly from Judd's extensive lacrosse knowledge and background."
