"I am thrilled for Tim McCormack and the Northwestern women's lacrosse program," said Massachusetts head coach Greg Cannella, now entering his 20th season in charge of the Minutemen. "He is an outstanding young man and coach. His tremendous leadership ability, loyalty and commitment to excellence will serve him well in Kelley Amonte Hiller's one-of-a-kind program. Tim lives and believes in the standards set by Coach Amonte Hiller and the great tradition of success she has established at Northwestern University."
