The new coach for Curry College men's lacrosse is John Carroll, and those familiar with the Division 3 game in the region may find that name familiar.
A former goaltender for UAlbany, Carroll has steadily risen through the coaching ranks in New England. With stints as an assistant at Holy Cross, Sacred Heart and Trinity, he was most recently the head coach for Nichols for 3 1/2 years.
