Dan Sheehan, the only coach at Le Moyne College to lead his team to a national championship, is in his 20th season as the mens lacrosse head coach. One of the nations most successful lacrosse coaches, he has posted a 269-46 (.854) overall mark, including five National Championship game victories. Since the turn of the century, Sheehans Dolphins are 257-29 (.899). His 269 career victories are the 24th-most in the history of NCAA lacrosse.

 

MapThe 1995 Ithaca College graduate has guided Le Moyne to 14 NCAA tournament berths in the last 15 years – its only trips to the national tournament in program history. Sheehan is a seven-time Northeast-10 Conference Coach of the Year, the 2000 USILA Division II Coach of the Year, the 2010 FieldTurf Division II Coach of the Year and the 2013 & 2016 Intercollegiate Mens Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA) Division II Coach of the Year.

 

Sheehan led the Dolphins to their fifth National Championship in 2016 with the Dolphins registering an 8-4 victory over top-ranked, previously-unbeaten and two-time defending national champion Limestone College to close out the season with a 20-0 record. The Dolphins became the fifth undefeated national champion in Division II history (three of which are Sheehan-led Le Moyne teams) and the 20 wins are the most by an undefeated team in DII history, besting the 18 by the 2006 Dolphins. Three weeks before winning the national championship, Sheehan guided the Dolphins to their 12th Northeast-10 Conference Championship. The Dolphins went undefeated in Northeast-10 Conference play for the 14th time in 17 seasons. The Dolphins led the nation in scoring defense (13th time in last 15 years), man-down defense and winning percentage, while ranking second in scoring margin and assists and fourth in ground balls.

 

A 1991 graduate of nearby lacrosse powerhouse West Genesee High School, Sheehan resides in Camillus with his wife Kate, a 1995 Le Moyne College graduate, their two sons, Kevin and Ryan, and daughter, Margaret.
