COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ian Moore has been hired as a volunteer assistant coach for the Ohio State men’s lacrosse program, head coach Nick Myers announced today. Moore comes to the Buckeyes after a three-year stint as the volunteer assistant coach at Lafayette.

“We’re so proud of Bo and thankful for everything he’s done to make the Buckeye Brotherhood stronger,” said Myers. “He has a long and successful coaching career ahead of him. He’ll do great things at Marquette with Coach Stimmel.
We also couldn’t be happier to add Ian to our staff. He’ll have a positive impact on our program from day one. His experience, energy and knowledge made him the perfect person to fill this opening. We’re excited for him to get started with us.”

“I am thrilled to be joining the Ohio State Lacrosse coaching staff! I am incredibly grateful to Coach Myers for extending me this opportunity, and I am looking forward to working with and learning from Coach Myers, Coach Crane, and Coach Lewis.
