Poskay Resigns at Wagner, Takes Over at Montclair State


Matt Poskay has resigned as the head coach of the Wagner Seahawks after seven seasons at the helm. Poskay is set to take take over as the head coach for DIII Montclair State.

During his seven years at Wagner Poskay has gone 20-75. Poskay has helped this Wagner program grow and get better over his seven years, especially the past few seasons. From 2010 to 2013 Wagner won just three games and had one winless season in 2011. In 2014 things started to improve for the Seahawks as they finally got over the hump and finally put together two wins.

In 2015 Poskay would lead the Seahawks to a 4-9 record which was their best record under his helm, at that time. In 2015 they went 4-9 and then had back to back six win seasons in 2016 and 2017. Last year in 2018 the Seahawks would go 4-9.

Prior to taking over at Wagner, Poskay was an assistant coach at DIII Drew and also spent time as his alma mater A.L. Johnson Regional High School. Poskay played at Virginia and would go on to play in the MLL where he last played with the Boston Cannons in 2013.

At Montclair State Poskay will take over as the head coach following the death of Mike Schambach, who passed away this summer after a year long battle with Colon Cancer. Due to that, I'm sure it will be a tougher transition for the Montclair State program and Poskay. Last season Montclair State went 9-6 and they are joining a new conference, Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC), this upcoming season.
