Eric Wolf was announced as an assistant coach and offensive coordinator for Harvard men's lacrosse on July 24, 2015 and completed his second season on head coach Chris Wojcik's '96 staff in 2017.
In Wolf's first season on the sideline Harvard reached the title game of the Ivy League Tournament after knocking off top-seeded and second-ranked Brown in the semifinal, 13-12. That victory was one of three for the Crimson over a nationally ranked opponent, with Harvard also defeating then No. 4 Duke, 14-9, and then No. 20 Villanova, 13-12. The win over the Wildcats came in the season opener in overtime as the Crimson became just the second team in NCAA history to win three-consecutive games in overtime. At the conclusion of the year Bobby Duvnjak (third team), Devin Dwyer (third team), and Joe Lang (honorable mention) were named to the USILA All-America teams, with a total of six individuals garnering All-Ivy League honors.
Wolf had served the previous four seasons as the offensive coordinator at Albany where he boasted the nation’s highest scoring offense each of the last three years. Albany set new Division I records with 325 goals, 203 assists and 528 points in 2015, with the 2013 and 2014 squads also ranking in the NCAA’s top 10 for points and goals in a season. The Great Danes reached the NCAA tournament in each of the three years after capturing the America East Tournament championship, reaching the quarterfinals in 2014 and 2015.
Wolf coached a pair of Tewaaraton winners at Albany in Lyle and Miles Thompson. The brothers shared the award in 2014 after finishing the year with 128 points and 119 points, respectively, ranking first and second in NCAA history. Lyle repeated as the Tewaaraton winner in 2015, and graduated as the NCAA’s all-time leader in points (400) and assists (225) while ranking 12th in goals (175). In total the Great Danes earned nine All-America honors with Wolf on the staff.
From 2009-11 Wolf led the offense at Siena, helping the Saints to a pair of MAAC championships and NCAA tournament berths. Siena captured its regular season championship each of his three seasons on staff, while two of his student-athletes, Ryan Duggan and Bryan Neufeld, were named MAAC Offensive Player of the Year.
Wolf was a four-year letterwinner at Albany, playing in 62 career games primarily as a midfielder. The Great Danes won three America East Tournament championships and made the NCAA tournament three times during his career, including his senior season in 2007 when the team reached the quarterfinals. Following graduation Wolf worked as the team’s director of operations before accepting the position at Siena.
Wolf graduated from Albany in 2007 with a degree in sociology and a minor in education.
