Doug Dwyer just started his 16th season as an assistant coach with the United States Merchant Marine Academy lacrosse program. He works as the offensive coordinator of the team and most recently helped guide the club to its best season in Academy history with a school record 13 wins and the program’s first bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Prior to USMMA, Dwyer coached the Garden City High School Trojans boy’s lacrosse team between 1984-2003. During his tenure the Trojans compiled a record of 379-35 which included 11 Nassau County, 10 Long Island and four New York State Championships (1986, 1994, 1997 and 2000).

Kenny Broschart – Assistant Coach, High Point University
Broschart, who came to HPU after a 10-year stint at Michigan, works directly with the face-off unit while assisting with the team’s defense and man-down unit. His impact was immediately felt as the Panthers’ face-off unit went from a 33.9 in 2017 to a 50.8 win percentage in his first season in 2018.
Broschart came to the Triad after spending a decade in Ann Arbor, Michigan at the University of Michigan. He became the defensive coordinator as the program transitioned to NCAA competition in 2011. Similarly, while running all aspects of the defensive strategy and scouting, Broschart served as the program’s recruiting coordinator.
The New York Institute of Technology graduate broke into the coaching ranks as a graduate assistant in charge of New York Tech’s defense. That season the Bears posted a 13-1 record and claimed the NCAA Division II national title.
Before joining the New York Tech staff, Broschart was a three-time USILA All-America defenseman from 1997-2001. During his playing career, the Bears posted an impressive 40-12 record.
