Michael Tobler enters his seventh season as an assistant coach with the Clark University lacrosse program after joining in January of 2012.
In his role, Tobler works exclusively with the goalkeepers and the Clark defense. During his tenure he mentored Kevin Ranta '14, who graduated as the program's all-time leader in wins (18), third in saves (414) and fourth in goals against average (9.32) and in 2015 oversaw the development of first-team all-conference netminder Drew Riopelle-Tyrrell, who went on to lead the NCAA in save percentage.
A former goalkeeper at Denison University, Tobler was a member of the 1999 Big Red squad team that advanced to the Division III national semifinals, falling to the eventual champion, Salisbury.
In his three years on the Denison squad, the Big Red made three appearances in the NCAA Tournament and had a combined record of 30-12.
Tobler earned a degree in Cultural History at Denison in 2000.
His older brother, Scott, played midfield at Tufts University from 1992-96.
A native of Exton, Pa., Tobler currently resides in Leominster with his wife, Jocelyn.
