“Judd Lattimore is a great addition to our coaching staff,” said Paul. “He brings incredible enthusiasm, and he understands what our culture is all about at Michigan. He’s a tireless recruiter with extensive Division I experience. He’s also an outstanding offensive coach who knows how to develop athletes and implement systems. I had more than one Patriot League coach thank me for taking him away from that conference so they won’t have to deal with his offenses anymore.”
“I am extremely proud to become a part of the winning tradition and excellence that is Michigan lacrosse,” said Lattimore. “Michigan Athletics has provided outstanding support to the lacrosse program, which attracts the best student-athletes around the country. The opportunity to compete for national championships year-in and year-out is the main reason I was drawn to working with Coach Paul and the University of Michigan.”
Lattimore has 10 years of college coaching experience as an assistant. His teams have compiled a record of 107-47. He has reached the Division I NCAA Tournament with four different teams and coached in a pair of Division II NCAA Tournament national title games.
His most recent stint was at Bucknell, where he was the offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator for the 2011 Patriot League champion. During his three seasons with the Bison, they set a program record for single-season wins (14, 2011) and achieved their highest national ranking (7th, USILA Coaches Poll). He coached at his alma mater, North Carolina, during the 2007 and 2008 campaigns. Lattimore also served as an assistant coach at Pennsylvania (2006), Delaware (2005), Limestone College (2003-04) and Geneseo State (2002).
A native of Auburn, N.Y., Lattimore played collegiately at UNC, where he was a two-year starter.
