Peter Donley (Susquehanna '14) enters his third season with the Red Devil coaching staff this fall, coming to Dickinson from Illinois Wesleyan University, where he served as an assistant for the past two seasons.

While at Illinois Wesleyan, Donley held roles as the defensive coordinator and face-off coordinator, handling all aspects of those units for the past two years. In 2016, the team ranked in the top 50 in face-off winning percentage and captured a share of the conference regular season title in just the program’s third year of existence.

In addition, Donley served as the recruiting coordinator and was very successful in bringing in strong classes as they looked to build the young program at IWU.

He has also served as an assistant coach with the Titan’s Elite Lacrosse Club, handling all aspects of the program, both coaching and administrative, and is an ACE certified strength and conditioning instructor.

In 2018, Donley helped lead the Red Devils to the program's fourth Centennial Conference Championship and to the NCAA Quaterfinals, finishing 17-4 on the season.

Donley is a 2014 graduate of Susquehanna University and received a master’s degree in Recreation Administration from Illinois State University in 2017.
