The 2013-14 season marks Ryan Glennon’s fourth year on head coach Chris Wojcik's '96 staff and his first as lacrosse operations coordinator. Glennon previously served as an assistant coach before assuming his new role.
Harvard posted a 10-6 overall record and 3-3 conference mark during Glennon’s first season with the program. The Crimson topped Penn, 12-8, in the Ivy League tournament semifinals, earning a spot in the conference tournament final for the first time in program history.
In Glennon's second season with the program in 2012, Harvard opened the year 2-0 in conference play for the first time since 1998 and earned three All-Ivy League selections: Jeff Cohen, Kevin Vaughan and Daniel Eipp. In addition, faceoff specialist Keegan Michel ranked 10th in the country in faceoff win percentage (.596).
Glennon helped the Crimson a 6-8 overall record and 2-4 mark in league action in 2013 after playing the ninth toughest schedule in the nation, including games against seven ranked opponents through the course of the season. Harvard earned five All-New England honors highlighted by Devin Dwyer’s NEILA Rookie of the Year selection and five All-Ivy nods.
Glennon, a former standout player at Colby College, was most recently an assistant coach for Delaware during the 2010 season. During his time with the Blue Hens, Delaware won its final three regular-season games to earn a spot in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament before ultimately earning a berth in the NCAA tournament. Glennon helped coach Delaware to a No. 12 final United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association ranking, while attackman Curtis Dickson was named a finalist for the Tewaaraton Award, as well as CAA Player of the Year.
He served three seasons at NCAA Division III power St. Lawrence as offensive coordinator in 2006-09 before coming to Delaware. A native of Exeter, N.H. and an All-American player at Phillips Exeter Academy, Glennon led St. Lawrence to its fourth consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament in 2009 as the Saints continued a string of NCAA appearances and maintained an unbeaten streak in conference play. Through the 2009 season SLU enjoyed a 32-game conference unbeaten streak, four straight conference championships, and four straight NCAA appearances.
Glennon is a 2004 graduate with a degree in English from Colby, where he was also four-year starter as a face-off specialist while also playing midfield and attack. He was Colby's third-leading scorer in 2004 and was named to the East-West Senior Game roster.
After graduation, Glennon worked at the Kents Hill School as the Associate Director of Admissions. He returned to his alma mater the following year to begin his collegiate coaching experience, joining the Colby staff as an assistant coach. He also coached both the Maine Select Lacrosse team and the New England Premier Lacrosse team in the summer of 2006, and later that year, Glennon joined Bowdoin College as an assistant coach and Game Management Coordinator.
“Ryan is an up and coming coach with a tireless work ethic,” Wojcik said. “He has been affiliated with winning programs throughout his coaching career, and he has developed a diverse skill set. Ryan’s background and college career will help him develop a positive rapport with our players.”
