Casey Kear was hired as Head Coach of the BSC Mens Lacrosse program on June 13, 2013.
“We are very pleased to have Casey Kear leading our mens lacrosse program,” Athletic Director Joe Dean, Jr., said. “Casey has been extremely successful as both a player and coach during his career, and we feel he is the right person to take our program to the national level.”,
Kear was an Assistant Mens Lacrosse Coach at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa., from 2006-2013. His main responsibility was coordinating the defense, and he was also the recruiting coordinator. Kear coached two NCAA All-Americans at FMC, and helped lead the Diplomats to top-20 national rankings in each of the past three seasons and 21 total wins in the last two seasons.
Malik Pedroso was hired as Assistant Mens Lacrosse Coach in September 2014.
Pedroso was a standout player at Lebanon Valley College in Annville, Pa., where he was a four-year starting attackman. He led the team in scoring in all four of his seasons on the squad, earning All-Conference honors all four years, and was 2011 MAC Commonwealth Conference Rookie of the Year. Pedroso was also a three-time Team MVP, recording 231 career points to help bring LVC from a brand new program to a perennial contender in the MAC Commonwealth Conference. Prior to his career at Lebanon Valley, Pedroso played at Chenango Valley High School in Binghamton, N.Y.
“Coach Pedroso has a great feel for the game and he is a tireless worker,” Head Coach Casey Kear said. “Most importantly, Malik has experience with a young program. He was a part of the change that occurred as LVC matured from a brand new program to a contender in their conference. He will be able to use that experience as we look to win our first Southern Athletic Association Championship here at BSC. I am looking forward to seeing his impact on this program as he works with our team, particularly on the offensive end of the field.”
