Millburn High School Lacrosse Coach Resigns to Accept College Position

August 7, 2013 at 6:29 AM

Millburn NJ- Over the past three seasons, the Millburn High School lacrosse program had been transformed by the addition of Coach Bill McCutcheon. Unfortunately Coach McCutcheon has decided to leave the Miller lax squad to accept an assistant coaching position at Monmouth University for next season.

In 2010, before the arrival of Coach McCutcheon the Millers had a disappointing 6-10 season where they missed the playoffs. After McCutcheon’s arrival, the Millers made the playoffs in 2011, 2012, and 2013. In his first year as Millburn Head Coach, McCutcheon lead the Millers to an impressive 14-5 season where the Millers lost in the quarterfinals. In 2012, Millburn went 12-8 and lost in the semifinal round of the playoffs. In 2013, McCutcheon’s last season, the team rallied to obtain a 14-7 record and lost in the semifinal round of the playoffs in a heartbreaker game to Ridgewood. McCutcheon has accomplished many feats as Millburn’s Head Coach and will most likely have similar success at Monmouth University and wherever else his coaching career takes him.

McCutcheon addressed players, parents, and community members by saying, “I have been offered an assistant coaching position at Monmouth University and have accepted and will be starting my duties full time in September…The last three years have been a wonderful experience for me and I would not have rather worked at another high school. The support has been amazing and what we were able to achieve over this time period was no small feat, requiring countless hours of hard work from both players and coaches…I want to thank all of the players and parents for your dedication, hard work and support.  It would not have been possible with out all of you buying into our system and trusting us with this team...The past three years have meant a lot to me and I will look back fondly at my time in Millburn.  I am looking forward to a new experience and a difficult one at that, but know that my years with this team has put me into a great position to pursue a life long college coaching career…Thank you for your time and support over the past few years and I wish all of you the best of luck going forward.”

Many players will miss Coach McCutcheon who was not only a lacrosse coach, but also a great teacher on and off the field. McCutcheon was a full time teacher at Morristown High School. The Miller coach will have to leave his teaching position at Morristown as he moves on to become a college coach.

Ross Florin has been involved in the Millburn Lacrosse program for the past three years. Florin, who recognizes McCutcheon as a great coach and teacher, said, “He basically turned around the program completely. I remember my freshman year, the varsity team couldn’t win any impressive games or go far in states, and since McCutcheon has been our coach we've had a winning record and we have made it to the state semifinals in the past two years. He brought in a great style of offense and taught us the right way to play. We now have a are a respectable program.” Florin will be a senior in the fall.

Another player who appreciates what McCutcheon has brought to the lax program is rising sophomore, Owen McCarthy, who said, “When he came in, he helped change this program around to something I'm proud to be a part of today. He changed this team from a joke into a state semifinalist.”

Coach McCutcheon’s father was also a vital contributor to the Miller lacrosse program. Bill  McCutcheon, Sr. may continue his tenure with the team.  As of now, it is unknown if Assistant Coaches Pat Healy and Bill McCutcheon Sr. will be on the Millers staff next season.

Coach McCutcheon will be missed on the Miller’s sideline next season, but the team will work toward a strong year with whoever the new coach may be.
