Max Silberlicht completed his third season as an assistant coach at Boston University in 2020.
Israel Lacrosse announced on Jan. 29, 2019, that Silberlicht will take over as head coach of its men's national team. This comes after Silberlicht served as the head coach of the Latvian National Team at the 2018 FIL World Lacrosse Championships.
For the second straight year, Silberlicht's defense led the NCAA in caused turnovers per game during a shortened 2020 campaign. BU averaged 12.50 caused turnovers per game while All-American LSM Reece Eddy finished the year ranked second in the country with an average of 2.67 caused turnovers per game. Senior goaltender Joe McSorley posted a top-20 save percentage for the second straight season, finishing the year at .540 while averaging 12.33 saves per game.
The Terrier defense thrived under Silberlicht in 2019. BU allowed 10.06 goals per game, which ranked 12th in the country. The Terriers also led the nation in caused turnovers per game (11.71), were fifth in the NCAA in ground balls per game (38.06) and sixth in the country in opponents clearing percentage (.748). In addition, McSorley had another spectacular year in the cage, posting the 12th-best save percentage in the country (.549) while averaging 12.18 saves per game.
Silberlicht had a successful first year with the Terriers as the goalkeepers coach as well as an assistant with the BU defense. He coached McSorley to an outstanding first season as the starting goalkeeper. An Academic All-Patriot League selection, McSorley finished 12th in the entire NCAA and first in the Patriot League with an average of 11.59 saves per game. He was also second in the Patriot League with a .520 save percentage.
Silberlicht joined the Terriers after spending the last five seasons as an assistant coach at Bowdoin. He helped guide the Polar Bears to four winning seasons during his tenure there, including back-to-back 10-win campaigns over the last two years.
Under Silberlicht’s guidance at Bowdoin, four players earned USILA All-America accolades this past season, including goalkeeper Peter Mumford. In addition, three Polar Bears received All-New England honors.
Prior to his role at Bowdoin, Silberlicht began his coaching career at Lynchburg College in Virginia. He served two seasons as an offensive assistant with the Hornets before joining Bowdoin in the summer of 2012.
Silberlicht was no stranger to Division I lacrosse when he arrived at BU, having shined as a goalkeeper at Hobart. A three-and-a-half-year starter for the Statesmen between the pipes, he posted a 9.24 goals against average with 18 wins, both program records. Silberlicht also recorded 553 saves with a .576 save percentage, both of which are second all-time at the school. In 2008, he broke the Hobart single-season goals against average (8.05) before breaking his own record the following year (7.91).
A native of New Hartford, New York, Silberlicht graduated Hobart in 2010. He then earned his Masters' degree in Educational Leadership from Lynchburg in 2012.
