Green Gets Lax Coach
Hanover — After a lengthy search, Dartmouth College announced the addition of Brendan Callahan as the school’s new men’s lacrosse coach on Monday.
Callahan comes to the Big Green after assisting at Lehigh for the past seven years. It will be his first head coaching job at the NCAA Division I level.
“Brendan impressed us as a terrific recruiter and a person of integrity,” Dartmouth athletic director Harry Sheehy said in a news release. “I know the players will love playing for him, as he has great passion for teaching not only lacrosse, but also the life lessons attached to the student-athlete experience. I look forward to working with him as he helps Dartmouth take the next step in the program’s development.”
Callahan is the 10th coach in the 89-year history of Dartmouth men’s lacrosse.
The Mountain Hawks made the NCAA tournament twice over Callahan’s time at Lehigh, where he was first assistant, defensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator since 2011.
“My mission as a coach is to inspire others to remove the obstacles that prevent them from reaching their maximum potential,” Callahan said in a news release. “My vision for the program is to create a culture that allows and encourages us to strive for greatness together on the field, in the classroom and in the community.
Callahan is a 2007 graduate of Stony Brook University, where he played four years as the Seawolves’ goaltender. He later earned a masters degree in education at Lehigh.
