Harvard to Begin National Search for Men’s Lacrosse Coach

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard Athletics will begin a search for a new men's lacrosse head coach as Chris Wojcik '96, who served as The Frisbie Family Head Coach for Harvard Men's Lacrosse for the past nine seasons, will not return for the 2020 campaign.

"We are grateful for Chris' leadership and dedication over the past nine years," said Bob Scalise MBA '89, The John D. Nichols '53 Family Director of Athletics. "I know how much this program means to him - both as our coach and as a Harvard alumnus and outstanding former student-athlete. I know that he will always be a part of the legacy and traditions of Harvard Athletics."

Wojcik posted a 65-65 overall record in nine seasons, which featured three Ivy League tournament finals appearances, and recorded a pair of 10-win campaigns. In 2014, Wojcik led Harvard to its first Ivy League title in 24 years and an at-large berth to the NCAA tournament, its first since 2006. 

"It's been a privilege to coach at Harvard and lead the men's lacrosse program," Wojcik said. "I cherish the relationships I have built with the student-athletes, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have mentored so many fine young men on and off the field. Thank you to Bob Scalise for giving me the opportunity and thank you to so many players, former players, and alumni for their support over the years. I wish the Harvard lacrosse program the best of luck, and I will be rooting for the team next season and most importantly in their lives after college."
