Peter Tulk recently completed his 17th season as the head coach of the Saint Vincent men's lacrosse program in 2018.

During the 2018 season, the Bearcats finished with a 15-4 overall record, including a perfect 10-0 regular season mark in the Ohio River Lacrosse Conference. The Bearcats established new school records for wins in a season (15) and consecutive wins (12). During the season, Jeremy Kennedy set new single-season school records for goals and points. Meanwhile, Anthony Hogeback set a new program record for assists in a career. Both Kennedy and Michael Grus was lauded with ECAC postseason honors, while the team also had 10 players honored with All-ORLC recognition.

The Bearcats' veteran head coach was named Ohio River Lacrosse Conference Coach of the Year in 2017, after guiding the team to a runner-up finish in both the ORLC regular season and ORLC Tournament. Eight Bearcats earned All-ORLC honors following the season, while Grus was selected All-ECAC South.

Following the 2016 season, four Bearcats were lauded with All-ORLC laurels.

Tulk also helped lead the Bearcats to an ORLC runner-up finish in 2015, falling to top-seeded Transylvania University in the championship game. Following the 2015 season, Nick Pensyl (Offensive) and Pat Kenna (Defensive) picked up respective Player of the Year awards from the ORLC. Kenna was also named a Mid-Atlantic All-Star by the ECAC.

In 2014, Tulk helped Saint Vincent claim its first Presidents' Athletic Conference championship, as the Bearcats topped Thiel College 16-11 at Chuck Noll Field. The Bearcats won seven of their last eight games en route to the title. Saint Vincent also appeared in the inaugural PAC Championship in 2013, falling to rival Washington & Jefferson.

His first run started when he was named the team's head coach prior to the 2000 season. In total, he has patrolled the sidelines for 15 seasons, posting a record of 105-101. His 2005 team was the most successful in team history, recording an 11-1 record, which set a single-season school record for wins.

He is a former Canadian pro box player, and spent six years coaching Mount Lebanon High School, before taking over as head coach at Franklin Regional. His Franklin teams earned three league championships in the late 1990s before he joined the Saint Vincent program.
