The sport of lacrosse is making waves across the nation, and has now set its feet down in the Midwest with a professional franchise. The Ohio Machine, who will join Major League Lacrosse for its inaugural season in 2012, recently announced that Loomis Chaffee boys varsity coach Ted Garber will be running the show, Lacross Magazine reported.
The announcement marks Garber's second stint in the league as a head coach. Garber served as the head coach of the Bridgeport Barrage in the MLL's inaugural season in 2001. He continued to play an integral part in the leagues development, serving as an assistant for Boston, Chicago and Rochester franchises before being let go during a coaching transition.
Garber came to Loomis in 2008 after coaching at Avon Old Farms School and coaching in the college ranks at the University of Massachusetts, where he compiled the best winning percentage in UMass lacrosse history.
