Amplo Named to NCAA D-I Lacrosse Committee
July 1, 2015
MILWAUKEE -- Marquette University head men's lacrosse coach Joe Amplo has been named to the NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Committee and will begin his four-year term on Sept. 1, 2015.
"It is an honor to be selected to play a role in shaping the future of NCAA Division I men's lacrosse and serving on the NCAA selection committee comes with a great deal of responsibility," Amplo said. "As our sport continues to grow, there are many important questions to be answered in the coming years and I am excited to get started."
The 2014 BIG EAST Conference Coach of the Year will serve as part of the five-member committee until Aug. 31, 2019. In addition to extending at-large invitations for the NCAA tournament, the group convenes each summer in Indianapolis to discuss pertinent topics to NCAA Division I men's lacrosse, including rules changes, NCAA Championship qualification and format, officiating and media rights.
The committee is slated to meet on July 28-30, 2015 before Amplo's term begins in September.
Amplo begins his fifth year and fourth season in 2015-16 as the only head coach in Marquette program history. He has led the Golden Eagles to back-to-back appearances in the BIG EAST Conference tournament semifinals and a program-record 10 victories in 2015 as MU reached as high as ninth in the national polls.
