Lacrosse World Mourns Loss of Legend Richie Moran


Richie Moran, a Hall of Fame coach and a lifelong advocate for the sport, died on Sunday at the age of 85.

One of the most beloved figures in the sport’s history, Moran compiled a 257-121 record in 29 seasons at Cornell (1969-97), winning national championships in 1971, 1976 and 1977. His squads won 15 Ivy League championships, including 10 consecutive titles. From 1976-1978, Cornell set an NCAA record with 42 consecutive victories. And from 1973-1979, his squads won 39 consecutive Ivy League contests.

Also the head coach of the 1978 U.S. men’s team that won a silver medal at the world championship, Moran was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1983. Today, the Hall of Fame gallery at USA Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md., is named in his honor.
