Clarkson University announced Thursday that longtime women’s lacrosse coach and Carthage native Ben Gaebel was stepping down and that assistant Ally Burrows would be taking over the program.
Gaebel, who spent 10 years at the helm of the women’s program, holds a number of program records in his tenure.
The move was one Gaebel says was tough, but needed to be made to free up more time for his family and his duties as Assistant Athletic Director at Clarkson.
”The thought process is I’ve been doing Assistant Athletic Director here for a couple years with a couple different parts of the department. The direction for me to move into that is the full time part of it . That’s why I’m stepping away from coaching. To be honest, the big thing for me is more family time. I don’t have to be out on the road recruiting anymore, gone for days at a time. I can coach my son’s youth team and be home with my young sons and wife a little bit more. So that’s kind of a big selling point for me,” said Gaebel.
