Farmingdale, N.Y. - Head Coach Tim Tuttle is pleased to announce that Greg Cody and two former players, Mike Maxwell and Tom Weil, have joined the coaching staff for the men’s lacrosse team at Farmingdale State.

Cody, a native of Levittown, N.Y., played at Division Avenue High School, where he earned All-County honors in his senior year at his defensive position. After earning a scholarship to attend C.W. Post, Greg became a 1st Team All-American defenseman in 1993. He continue on as an assistant coach at C.W. Post, recruiting for the Division II program and working with the defense. Coach Tuttle stated - "I've known Greg for a long time and I can't tell you how excited I am to have him join our staff. Greg is a tireless recruiter who has already helped us bring in some quality players. He will be our defensive coordinator along with his recruiting duties."

Maxwell, a West Babylon, N.Y. native, was added to the staff as a volunteer assistant coach for 2010 and he will be working primarily with our midfielders. Mike played three seasons at NYIT and only one year for the Rams, but in doing so made 2nd Team All-Conference in 2009. His biggest game was against Maritime where he scored six goals on seven shots, helping the Rams to a 14-12 victory. "Mike was a tough player who would give all he had each and every day, our current players will benefit from his playing experience and work ethic," said Coach Tuttle.

Weil, from St. James, N.Y. and a Connetquot graduate, will also be a volunteer assistant coach for the 2010 season. Weil played two seasons with the Rams after transferring from Division II Pfeiffer College in North Carolina. Tom earned a spot on the second midfield and was Farmingdale’s #1 clearing midfielder. Tom will be working with the goalies and the face-off midfielders.
