John Paul (click to hear him talk about their 10 Man Ride) just wrapped up his 13th season at the helm of the Michigan men’s lacrosse team having accumulated a 223-43 record during that span. In 2008, the Wolverines did something no other MCLA team has ever done before when they completed a perfect season by going 20-0.

In 2009 the Wolverines repeated the feat by going 20-0 again and winning their second national championship. Michigan pulled off the three-peat in 2010, finishing the regular season with one loss to push their overall record to 58-1 over the past three campaigns.

Away from the field, Paul’s teams have excelled in the classroom and community as well. Over the last several years the team has earned over a 3.4 overall grade-point-average.

His lacrosse coaching career began at Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor while he was still at Michigan in 1989.

    Saw Coach Paul two years ago here outside of Cleveland. Easily one of the most articulate and thoughtful presenters I’ve ever seen in a clinic. He captures that ideal of coaching the whole player.
