BOSTON - Justin Domingos has been named an assistant coach for the Boston University men's lacrosse program, head coach Ryan Polley announced on Thursday.

Domingos will be the Terriers' defensive coordinator, joining Polley and offensive coordinator Drew Kelleher to complete the program's coaching staff. He arrives at BU after spending the past three seasons as the head coach at Colby College, where he posted a 24-21 overall record and led the Mules to the NESCAC playoffs in each of his first two years at the helm. His defense allowed fewer than eight goals per game in those two seasons, including a conference-best 7.44 goals per game in 2011. Domingos also coached the first Mule to be named a First Team All-American and USILA positional player of the year.

"I'm thrilled to bring Justin aboard," Polley said. "He has the perfect background to complement Coach Kelleher and myself both on and off the field. As a well-respected coach within the lacrosse community, he will help us attract the highest caliber of student-athletes to Boston and help mentor them into outstanding young men."

Prior to his time at Colby, Domingos spent two seasons as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Gettysburg. He was the defensive coordinator and worked with the face-off men when the Bullets made a national title game appearance in 2009. It was his second stint as an assistant coach at Gettysburg, as he was the offensive coordinator when it advanced to the 2002 national title game.

As a student-athlete at Gettysburg, Domingos served as a team captain for both the football and lacrosse teams during his senior year. In lacrosse, Domingos was a two-year starter as a defenseman and helped the Bullets to a 44-28 record. He was a member of Gettysburg's 1998 and 1999 Centennial Conference championship teams.

"Justin has been a winner as both a player and a coach and I expect him to instill the work ethic in our players that it takes to be successful at the highest level of Division I lacrosse," Polley added. "Under his leadership, Justin's defensive units at both Colby and Gettysburg emerged as top defenses in their respective conferences and I have no doubt he will bring the same result to BU."

BU will begin varsity play in the 2013-14 season as a member of the nine-team Patriot League.
