LEWISBURG, Pa. – Bucknell head men's lacrosse coach Frank Fedorjaka announced Thursday the addition of Matt Dugan to his staff as an assistant coach.
Dugan spent the past three seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Tampa, where he helped the Spartans reach the NCAA Division II tournament each year by winning the Sunshine State Conference championship.
The University of Tampa advanced to the NCAA semifinals in both 2017 and 2016. This past season, the Spartans fell to the eventual national champion, No. 1 Limestone College, by a tight 12-10 decision.
Dugan coordinated the University of Tampa's face-offs, recruiting, scheduling and travel. He was also the assistant director of Whipple Lacrosse, the company that managed the team's camps.
Beginning in December 2016, Dugan served as the Director of Player Analytics for the Florida Launch, a Major League Lacrosse club. He was the first person to work exclusively in analytics for the Launch.
Before his time at the University of Tampa and with the Florida Launch, Dugan was an assistant coach at Tompkins-Cortland Community College. In 2014, he helped the Panthers reach the playoffs for only the second time in team history.
Dugan has also worked at summer camps run by Marist College and Hamilton College. He held positions with D&B Sportswear, O'Connell Sports Management and Armideo Real Estate.
A three-year starter and primary face-off man at Marist College, Dugan graduated in 2013 with a B.S. in Business/Finance. During his time as a Red Fox, he twice posted a face-off percentage north of .510 and finished in the MAAC's top five in ground balls three times.
Dugan played three years of high school lacrosse for Christian Brothers Academy. A member of the 2017 Section III Class C Section Championship team, he was named to the all-league second team as a junior and senior.
