ESPN760.com is reporting that Jeff Goldberg is returning to the sidelines this season.
After a year away from the sidelines, legendary lacrosse coach Jeff Goldberg is coming back. The former St. Andrew’s head coach has agreed to become the Associate Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator for St. Thomas Aquinas this upcoming season.
“At this point in my career, I just want to connect with young players and have an impact on their performance,” Goldberg said.
Goldberg served as St. Andrew’s head lacrosse coach for 17 seasons before the school parted ways with him on August 20, 2010. During his tenure at St. Andrew’s, Goldberg won 14 state titles and left as Florida’s all-time leader in career wins. The man who’s number two on that list is Terry Crowley, St. Thomas Aquinas’ head coach.
“The year I’ve taken off, I’ve had a lot of time to figure out what my next move is and he’s the guy I felt enamored by,” said Goldberg. “If I was to be an assistant coach and to work for someone, it would be with him.”
Goldberg and Crowley certainly have a long history together. The two have known each other for 25 years, dating back to their days in Long Island. When Goldberg moved down to Florida in 1991, he ended up sharing an apartment with Crowley as well. Since then, the two have coached together on Team Florida and Florida Extreme.
