HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – Hofstra University women's lacrosse coach Abby Morgan announced her resignation on Tuesday following nine seasons with the Pride program.

"I have truly enjoyed helping young women succeed in the classroom, on the field and in life," commented Morgan. "I wish the best to the student-athletes that I have coached here at Hofstra and wish them luck in all of their future endeavors. Personally, I am extremely appreciative and thankful for my Assistant Coaches Tanya Kotowicz and Allison Nuzzi for everything they have done for me and for the program."

Morgan, who joined the Hofstra staff at the start of the 2003-04 academic year as an assistant coach, spent the last six seasons as head coach of the Pride. She departs with a career record of 52-50, the second-most wins amongst the eight head coaches in program history. During her head coaching tenure Hofstra made three appearances in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship, including advancing to the title game in 2007 (NCAA appearance) and 2010.

"We would like to thank Coach Morgan for her contributions to Hofstra University and our women's lacrosse program," said Interim Director of Athletics Danny McCabe. "We appreciate all of her efforts over the last nine years and wish her well in the future."

The University will conduct a national search for Morgan's replacement.
