Dalgliesh would help guide Marywood to a 9-5 record and a berth in the conference playoffs in the team's first year of competition. The following year, the Pacers posted their first-ever 10-win season and advanced to the Colonial States Athletic Conference Championship Game. During his time at Marywood, Dalgliesh was active in all aspects of the program including recruiting, fundraising, and developing strength and conditioning program.

Certified as a United States Lacrosse Level I Coaching Trainer, Dalgliesh enjoyed an outstanding playing career at Dickinson College, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Law and Policy before going on to earn a Masters Degree in Public Administration at Marywood.

Dalgliesh becomes the second head coach in program history as he replaces Mic Grant, who resigned earlier this summer.
