.J. Love, who spent six years on the staff at Cornell, including helping to lead the Big Red to the 2012 Ivy League championship, has joined Kylie Stannard’s staff as an assistant coach.

During his tenure in Ithaca, Cornell posted a 49-35-17 overall record, including four straight winning seasons from 2011 to 2014. In 2012, Love helped guide the Big Red to a 15-2 overall record, the school’s first Ivy championship since 1995 and its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1996. Cornell was nationally ranked for much of the season and finished No. 20 in the final NSCAA poll.

Love was instrumental in changing the culture of the Cornell program. The team finished 8-2-6 in 2011 after going winless in Ivy play in 2010. In 2014, the Big Red had its fourth consecutive season above .500, allowed just 11 goals on the season and set a new school record with 11 shutouts.
