HEAD COACH GENE McCABE

Gene McCabe is in his first season as head men’s lacrosse coach at Washington and Lee. 

McCabe is no stranger to W&L lacrosse, having served as an assistant lacrosse and football coach for the Generals from 1998-2001.  During his three seasons with the lacrosse team, the Generals posted a 43-5 (.896) overall record and a 17-1 mark in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference while achieving a No. 1 National Ranking in 1999 and 2001.  Additionally, W&L won two ODAC Championships and participated in the NCAA Tournament twice, advancing to the semifinals in 2000.

After a successful run with the Generals, McCabe left for Hamilton College in January of 2002, steering the Continentals to a 54-18 (.750) overall record.  His 2003 team finished the season with a school-record 15 wins (15-3), claimed the Liberty League title and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals.  For his efforts, McCabe was named the Liberty League Coach of the Year and USILA Division III National Coach of the Year.  McCabe and his staff were also selected the Liberty League Coaching Staff of the Year following an 11-3 season in 2006.  In his five seasons, McCabe mentored seven Continentals to USILA All-America accolades.

McCabe graduated from Bates College in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in European history. At Bates, he lettered in both lacrosse and football. He and his wife Kristen have three young daughters; Kaelan (7), Molly (3), and Ava (1).
