Joe Amplo is one of three coaches who was on Princeton’s campus to interview for their head coach position according to Ryan Denehy. Also interviewing was Hobart’s Greg Raymond and Amherst’s Jon Thompson.

Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun also reported today that Princeton has requested permission to speak to Towson head coach Shawn Nadelen.

Amplo is the only head coach in Marquette lacrosse’s short history. He took over the helm in 2011 and has already turned Marquette lacrosse from a start-up to a lacrosse power. He’s gone 32-29 in his four seasons of play, earning the team’s first BIG EAST title and NCAA Tournament berth this season. He was named the BIG EAST Coach of the Year in 2014 and to John Danowski’s U.S. staff last season.

Princeton’s job opened up after the school parted with Chris Bates following an incident where he elbowed a Brown player running down the sidelines. Matt Madalon was named the interim head coach in April.

The Tigers boast one of the most historically successful programs in the sport. Princeton has won six national titles in the NCAA era, the latest coming in 2001, under now Denver head coach Bill Tierney.
