Former Muhlenberg ('11) standout goalkeeper Mike Horowitz wrapped up his fourth season on the Saint Joseph's men's lacrosse coaching staff in Spring 2018.

After serving as a volunteer assistant coach in 2015, Horowitz was promoted to assistant coach for the 2016 campaign and has been in that capacity for the last three seasons.

Horowitz assists in all facets of the program, with a specific focus on mentoring SJU's goalkeepers and face-off unit and coordinating the scout team offense.

In the four seasons Horowitz has been on Hawk Hill, Saint Joseph's produced the 2016 Northeast Conference Defensive Player of the Year in T.J. Jones in addition to eight All-Conference defensemen, two All-Conference face-off specialists, and a two-time All-Conference First Team long stick midfielder and saw the Hawks earn 13 NEC Defensive Player of the Week honors.

In 2018, Horowitz worked directly with redshirt freshman goalkeeper Mike Adler, who turned in a rookie campaign for the ages. Under Horowitz's eye, Adler put together an 8.11 goals against average and .596 save percentage on 167 saves vs. 113 goals allowed to rank third in the nation in save percentage, sixth in the nation in goals against average, and second in the Northeast Conference in both. Adler backstopped a defensive unit that ranked fourth nationally in scoring defense (8.00) and seventh nationally in man-down defense (76.6 percent). Horowitz guided Adler to NEC Second Team and Rookie Team accolades as well as two NEC Defensive Player of the Week accolades and four NEC Rookie of the Week honors.

For three seasons (2015-17), Horowitz directly worked with 2017 Inside Lacrosse Preseason All-American Honorable Mention goalkeeper T.J. Jones, who capped his career on Hawk Hill in Spring 2017 as the program's recordholder in career victories (31), single-season victories (12), career goals against average (8.38), and single-season goals against average (7.47) and ranked third in career saves (502) and sixth in career save percentage (.551).

In 2016, Saint Joseph's ranked fifth nationally in scoring defense (7.88), eighth in face-off winning percentage (60.8%), and 12th in man-down defense (69.4%). Additionally, under Horowitz's direction, Jones set program records in single-season victories (12) and single-season goals against average (7.47), while SJU's goalkeeper group combined for the lowest single-season goals against average in program history (7.83).

In 2015, the Hawks led the nation in man-down defense (.800) for the second consecutive year and ranked in the top 15 in scoring defense, and caused turnovers per game.
