Chris Wojcik

University of Notre Dame Baumer Family Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach Kevin Corrigan has announced the hiring of Chris Wojcik as an assistant coach.

Wojcik will serve as the offensive coordinator for the Irish.

“I’m thrilled to add proven coach like Chris Wojcik to our staff,” said Corrigan. “It’s always a win when you get a coach with great talent and experience who shares the same values as our program.”

Wojcik comes to the Irish after leading the Harvard men’s lacrosse program as the head coach for the last nine seasons.

During his time at the helm of the Crimson, Wojcik directed Harvard to a 65-65 overall record, including a pair of 10-win campaigns and 15 wins against ranked opponents. Six individuals collected a total of nine USILA All-America accolades, while 41 were named All-Ivy League.

“I’m excited to join an outstanding program at an outstanding university,” said Wojcik. “Thank you to Coach Corrigan for the opportunity to join the men’s lacrosse program. Notre Dame men’s lacrosse is synonymous with an exceptional student/athlete experience, and I am aligned with the values of the program. I’m eager to begin developing relationships with our student/athletes and starting our journey together.”

Wojcik’s most successful season with the Crimson came during the 2014 season, as Harvard won the program’s first Ivy League championship in 24 years with a league record of 5-1. The feat helped earn Harvard an at-large berth to the NCAA tournament, its first since 2006 and sixth overall while elevating the Crimson to a ranking of 11th in the nation.

Harvard finished the 2014 campaign with a 10-7 overall record, an impressive 7-1 mark in Cambridge, four wins over ranked opponents and seven selections to the All-Ivy League teams, the second-most in program history. Wojcik was tabbed as the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Coach of the Year.

In his first season on the Harvard sideline, Wojcik guided the Crimson to a 10-6 overall record, marking the most wins for the program since 1998. Harvard, which earned a spot in the Ivy League tournament final, finished tied for third in the Ancient Eight with a 3-3 mark and earned four all-conference selections.

During the 2012 campaign, Wojcik led Harvard to as high as a No. 14 national ranking, and the Crimson began Ivy League play 2-0 for the first time since 1998. Harvard finished the season 5-2 at home and saw three players earn All-Ivy honors, most notably Jeff Cohen and Kevin Vaughan who were tabbed to the All-Ancient Eight first team.
