By Jeff Greer

American lacrosse legend Casey Powell resigned from his position as lacrosse director at St. Andrew’s on Tuesday, the school announced.

Powell, 37, spent two and a half years at St. Andrew’s, leading both the boys’ and girls’ programs. He was the program’s player development coach, helping the boys’ team to a 2012 state title and a return appearance to this year’s final.

Boys’ lacrosse coach RJ Dawson will keep his position in the program.

“I really enjoyed my three years at Saint Andrew’s working with such great student-athletes,” Powell said in a statement released by St. Andrew’s. “I’m excited about the next chapter in my life as I pursue other opportunities in the lacrosse world.”

Powell, who won an NCAA title in 1995 as a player at Syracuse and twice received national player of the year honors, is the all-time leading scorer in Major League Lacrosse. He won a gold medal with the U.S. team in the 1998 World Lacrosse Championships. He was MVP of the U.S.’s 1999 World Cup team and MVP of the National Lacrosse League in 2010.
