Stony Brook men's lacrosse head coach Rick Sowell has been linked with the vacant head coaching position at Navy, according to reports in the The Capital in Maryland and Inside Lacrosse.

Sowell, who led the Seawolves to a second-straight undefeated conference season and regular-season America East title before falling in the championship game to Hartford, is now considered the leading candidate after Maryland's John Tillman, Villanova's Mike Corrado and Syracuse assistant Lelan Rogers.

Sowell just finished his fifth season with the Seawolves, having won an America East championship and made an NCAA quarterfinals appearence in 2010 on his way to a 47-26 (.644) career record at Stony Brook.

He was named America East Coach of the Year for both the 2010 and 2011 seasons, and also served as an assistant coach for the Team USA that won gold at the World Championships in 2010.

Along the way, Sowell has coached four all-Americans and sent five players on to the professional ranks.

Before Stony Brook, Sowell was the head coach at St. John's for two seasons. He began his career as an assistant coach at Georgetown before leaving to take the head coach position at Dartmouth in 1999. Sowell led Dartmouth to its first ever Ivy League championship in 2003, his last season before he began the St. John's job.
