Jim Moss joins the Stanford lacrosse coaching staff for his first season as a volunteer assistant coach. A native of Brampton, Ontario, Moss brings international and professional lacrosse playing experience to coach Uhlfelder's staff. The current captain of the San Jose Stealth of the National Lacrosse League, Moss was selected by his peers as Inside Lacrosse Magazine's Best Defender of the Year last season. The anchor of the San Jose defense, Moss was one of three Stealth players selected to the NLL Western Division All-Star team in 2004. The two-time All-Star team and All-Pro team selection broke into the NLL with the Albany Attack in 2001 and set the league record for fastest first career goal, scoring just six seconds into his professional debut.
"We're very excited to have Jim join our coaching staff for the upcoming season," said Uhlfelder. "He appreciates the athleticism of the women's game, and is very motivated to coach at this level."
Moss attended the University of Western Ontario in London, where he also played Major Junior A Hockey. He has represented his native Canada in both hockey and lacrosse in international competition.
Moss also serves as the San Jose Stealth's fan development coordinator, assisting in community events, lacrosse camps, and makes charity appearances to promote the Stealth and the game of lacrosse. He also spent time as a ticket sales representative for the team last season. Jim lives in the Bay Area with his fiancée Jenny.
