DURHAM, N.C.—Duke University men’s lacrosse head coach John Danowski capped off his championship run by earning a 2013 ESPY nomination for the Best Coach/Manager of the Year. Danowski recently guided the Blue Devils to the 2013 NCAA Championship with a 16-10 win over top-seeded Syracuse.

Danowski is up against Bruce Arians of the Indianapolis Colts, UConn’s Geno Auriemma, Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino and the Miami Heat’s Erik Spoelstra. The fans determine the winner for the first time in ESPYS history. Fan voting ends July 17 at 9 p.m. (ET).

Danowski, second among active Division I coaches with 330 career victories, became the 11th Division I men’s lacrosse head coach to capture multiple national titles when the Blue Devils raced past the Orange on Memorial Day. In his seven seasons at the helm, Danowski has guided Duke to seven consecutive NCAA championship weekends and to NCAA titles in 2010 and 2013.

In his seven seasons at Duke, Danowski sports a 111-29 overall record, six ACC regular season titles, four ACC Tournament crowns, seven appearances in the NCAA semifinals, three title games and two NCAA Championships. Duke’s 111 wins over the past seven seasons are the most by any lacrosse team, while Danowski is the first coach in program history to advance to seven NCAA championship weekends in his first seven seasons at the helm.

The longtime head coach has mentored 37 All-Americans, Four ACC Most Outstanding Player award recipients, 22 All-ACC choices and two Tewaaraton Award winners during his tenure at Duke. He was the 2010 USILA National Coach of the Year and has been selected as the ACC Coach of the Year three times.
