After two stints as an assistant coach at Bucknell spanning nearly a decade, Frank Fedorjaka took over as head coach in 2006 when he succeeded longtime mentor Sid Jamieson. Fedorjaka has led the Bison to two of the last four Patriot League regular-season titles, and in 2011 guided the team to its first Patriot League Tournament title and second NCAA Tournament appearance.
Fedorjaka became only the second head coach in Bucknell lacrosse history, following in the footsteps of Jamieson, the Bucknell Hall of Famer who founded the varsity lacrosse program in 1968.
In his first season at the helm, Fedorjaka led the Bison to a historic victory over No. 1 Maryland -- the program's first-ever victory over a top-ranked team -- and another top-20 road win at Penn State later in the season. The victories really began to start pouring in during year No. 2, as the Bison went 11-4, including three top-20 wins, and came within one of the school record for wins in a season. Another 10-win season followed in 2008, and the Bison advanced all the way to the Patriot League championship game for the first time.
In 2009 Fedorjaka was named Patriot League Coach of the Year for the first time after leading the Bison to a perfect 6-0 conference record and the Patriot League regular-season title. His team made it to the championship game for the second year in a row, this time dropping a one-goal heartbreaker to Navy.
In 2010, the Bison took second-ranked and eventual national champion Duke to overtime, and they again qualified for the postseason. Bucknell finished 8-6, with the six losses coming by a combined seven goals.
And then in 2011 the Bison finished 14-3, setting a new school record for wins in a season. They went 6-0 in the Patriot League for the second time in three years and routed Lehigh and Colgate in the PL Tournament before entering the NCAA Tournament with a No. 7 national ranking, the highest in program history. Bucknell nearly upset eventual national champion Virginia in the first round, leading for most of the game before falling 13-12 in overtime. Fedorjaka was rewarded with his second Patriot League Coach of the Year award.
Known throughout his career as one of the college game's best defensive minds, Fedorjaka's teams annually rank among the national leaders in scoring defense, man-down defense and riding efficiency.
In his first seven years as head coach he has mentored nine All-Patriot League defensemen, including 2011 All-American Alex Lyons, and four all-conference goalies. One of those goalies, Nick Sciubba, led the nation in save percentage and goals-against average in 2007. He has also coached three-time All-American Austin Winter, and the 2009 team produced a school-record six First Team All-Patriot League honorees. Three of Fedorjaka's student-athletes have gone on to play professional lacrosse after graduation.
Fedorjaka rejoined the Bucknell lacrosse family after serving as head coach at Franklin & Marshall for five years. Fedorjaka served as an assistant coach at Bucknell for the 1992 and 1993 seasons before going to F&M.
In Fedorjaka's five seasons at F&M, the Diplomats compiled a 39-31 record. His 39 wins placed him in second on the school's all-time lacrosse wins list.
In 1995 Fedorjaka was named the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's Division III Coach of the Year, after leading the Diplomats to a 12-3 record and an NCAA playoff berth. In addition to his responsibilities as men's lacrosse coach, Fedorjaka also served as an assistant coach in football and women's soccer during his tenure at F&M.
Also while at F&M Fedorjaka served as the Chair to the Southern ECAC Lacrosse Committee in 1997 and 1998. He served on the USILA National Ranking Committee and NCAA Advisory Committee for Division III lacrosse.
A 1989 graduate of Hobart College, Fedorjaka was a starting long-stick midfielder on three NCAA Division III national championship teams. He was also a three-year starter at wide receiver for the Statesman football team, earning All-America honors in 1988. The Rochester, N.Y., native was named Hobart's Athlete of the Year in 1989. During his career at Hobart, he held all reception records and remained the school's all-time leading receiver until 2004. Fedorjaka began his coaching career as a graduate assistant for two years at Springfield College (Mass.).
