Peter Milliman Is Headed to Johns Hopkins
Johns Hopkins has hired Peter Milliman as their new men’s lacrosse coach. College Crosse’s Chris Jastrzembski tweeted the news about 20 minutes ago. Milliman had been the Cornell head coach for the last three seasons. Ty Xanders’ of Inside Lacrosse wrote that he told his now former players via Zoom earlier tonight. At the same time the Hopkins players had a Zoom conference of their own where they heard the news.
Former Blue Jay coach Dave Pietramala also came to Homewood from Cornell in 2001. Milliman was 28-10 for the Big Red including a 5-0 record in the shortened 2020 season. Before becoming head coach he served as an assistant for four years in Ithaca. He played for DIII power Gettysburg where he was a three time All-American.
Last week I heard that Shawn Nadalen and Greg Raymond had decided to stay at there current schools so Milliman became the obvious choice. He won’t have time to celebrate though. He has to get to know his new team and the recruits that committed to the previous staff. He also has to name a staff of his own. Two starters from the 2020 Hopkins team are already in the transfer portal including attackman Cole Williams. The portal is loaded with talent thanks to the NCAA giving seniors an extra year and all the decisions that followed. I will keep you updated as the news breaks.
