Conor Whipple

Conor Whipple was elevated to Bucknell's assistant men's lacrosse coach in September 2019.

Whipple, who joined the Bison staff as a volunteer assistant coach ahead of the 2019 campaign, will continue to be involved in daily practice planning, recruiting and clinics. He works primarily with the goalies and in offensive player skill development.

Whipple came to Bucknell from the University of Tampa, where he was a four-time USILA All-American. Whipple graduated with Spartan records in career points (354) and assists (185); he also stood second all-time in career goals (169), games played (75) and games started (72) at the end of his illustrious career.

Whipple posted Tampa's top-four totals in single-season assists, topping out at 60 as a senior in 2017. His 99 points that season slotted him in a tie for first in Spartan history.

A three-time Sunshine State Conference Player of the Year, Whipple led Tampa to four-straight tournament titles. The Spartans appeared in the NCAA Division II tournament all four years, reaching the semifinals in 2014, 2016 and 2017.

Whipple was also a 2017 USILA Scholar All-American and three-year captain. Following his collegiate playing days, he was drafted by the Florida Launch in the 2017 Major League Lacrosse Draft.

Whipple graduated from Tampa with a degree in sports management in 2017. He later obtained his master's in entrepreneurship from his alma mater in December 2018.

Whipple is no stranger to the coaching business as his father, Rory, is the all-time winningest men's lacrosse coach at the Division II level. Whipple was coached by his father at Tampa. The elder Whipple previously held head coaching position at Florida Southern, Bryant, Hartwick and Clarkson.
