Details on the "Legends"


Tierney - much as I am not a fan, the guy is a great coach who dictated his own terms and went on to win somewhere else.

Starsia - great man, great coach, didn't know when it was time to retire.

Petro - great player, decent coach, had the misfortune of being at the wheel when JHU's relevance as a lacrosse school began its decline.

Desko - good coach, who for some reason couldn't seem to get the players he needed at the end.

I'll add:
Cottle - not in the same league, but fits the bill for getting the boot before he was ready. Short of winning the title game, he had the terps winning a lot of games in May.
