As a Seton LaSalle Alum (‘86), Walsh takes his role very seriously saying, “It’s amazing to be able to have the students at Seton LaSalle gain the total experience of what it is to learn, develop, and graduate from such an incredible place.

To be able to come back here and coach is truly a blessing.”.
