The Pitt Men’s Lacrosse team is excited to announce the hiring of Zach Wilfong as our new Head Coach.
Most recently, Wilfong was the Offensive Coordinator at Division II’s Seton Hill University. During his two seasons with SHU, he helped lead the Griffins to a 29-6 record, the nation’s #1 ranked offense, two GMAC Conference Championships, and a national semifinal appearance; doing this while simultaneously earning his Master of Business Administration from Seton Hill. Throughout his time at Seton Hill, he directly coached several NCAA DII USILA All-Americans, as well as the 2018 GMAC Offensive Player of the Year.
Prior to Seton Hill, Wilfong played a crucial role in developing a program at Division III’s Ohio Northern University. At ONU, he assisted the lacrosse team in their inaugural year, serving as a Recruiting Coordinator and Primary Assistant Lacrosse Coach, while helping the team achieve a winning record of 8-7 during the 2016 season.
He also spent time as Carnegie Mellon University’s Head Coach and Central Catholic High School’s Offensive Coordinator.
As a player, Wilfong was a standout attackman at Saint Vincent College. He was a four-year starter, three-year captain, and one of the top all-time scorers in school history. After his senior year, he was selected to play in the USILA DIII North-South Game.
We are thrilled to have Zach Wilfong at the helm, and are excited about the passion for the game, high lacrosse IQ, and cultural focus that he brings to our program.
Hail to Pitt!
