5 time NCAA Division II Champions

 

Dan Sheehan, the first coach at Le Moyne College to lead his team to a national championship, is in his 23rd season as the men’s lacrosse head coach. One of the nation’s most successful lacrosse coaches, he has posted a 314-54 (.853) overall mark through the 2019 season, including five National Championship game victories. Since the turn of the century, Sheehan’s Dolphins are 302-37 (.891). His 314 career victories are the 16th-most in the history of NCAA lacrosse.

 

Sheehan led Le Moyne to another successful season in 2019. The Dolphins posted a 16-3 overall record and a 10-1 mark in the Northeast 10 Conference. The strong regular season helped Le Moyne earn the second seed in the NE-10 Conference tournament. After defeating defending national champion Merrimack with a buzzer-beating goal in the semifinals, the Dolphins defeated top-seeded Adelphi 11-9 to win their 14th conference tournament championship and third in the last four years. Le Moyne earned the top seed in the North region of the NCAA tournament and recorded a win over Mercy before being knocked out by eventual national champion Merrimack in the national semifinals. Five players from Sheehan’s 2019 roster earned All-American honors including three positional players of the year and first-teamers.

 

The 1995 Ithaca College graduate has guided Le Moyne to 15 NCAA tournament berths in the last 16 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 and 2016 Intercollegiate Men’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA) Division II Coach of the Year.

 

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.
