Just over a month after longtime coach Andy Copelan stepped down to pursue other opportunities, Fairfield has found a new men's lacrosse coach.
After a seven-year run at Yale, Andrew Baxter will now lead the program, the school announced late Monday evening.
Baxter has been the Bulldogs' defensive coordinator since 2013, plus was appointed as associate head coach after the Ivy League program won the 2018 national championship at Gillette Stadium.
"I am honored to be chosen as the head coach of Fairfield Men's Lacrosse," Baxter said in a release. "I would like to thank President Nemec and director of athletics Paul Schlickmann for their confidence and trust in me. I am committed to building a brand of lacrosse that our community of students, fans and alumni will be proud to follow and support."
