Sherman Named First-Ever Head Lacrosse Coach at Carroll U.

(Waukesha, Wis.) - Chris Sherman has been named the first-ever head men's lacrosse coach at Carroll University, announced Joe Baker, Director of Athletics.

"We are excited to bring Chris Sherman to Carroll University," said Baker. "He is clearly the right person for this job. The program has to be built from the ground up and I know Chris is going to lay a solid foundation. Not only will he build a successful men's lacrosse program, he will more importantly serve as a tremendous role model for our student-athletes."

Following a standout playing career at St. Andrews University in Laurinburg, N.C., Sherman became an assistant coach at his alma mater before heading west to become the head coach of the Snohomish County lacrosse program in the state of Washington. Two years later he returned to the assistant coach position at St. Andrews before being named head coach for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. In 2013 he moved into an administration position at St. Andrews before deciding to get back into coaching.

"I am very excited to join Carroll University and share in the University's vision and plans for the future," said Sherman. "I want to thank Dr. Hastad, Mr. Baker, Mr. [Jim] Wiseman, and everyone at Carroll for this privilege. It is an honor to be the first coach in the programs history."

Carroll University announced the addition of men's and women's lacrosse in October and conducted a national search to fill its two coaching vacancies. Michael Hodge was named the head women's coach in February.

The lacrosse programs will compete in the Midwest Lacrosse Conference and Midwest Women's Lacrosse Conference and will increase Carroll's NCAA-sponsored athletics program to 22.
