Corinne Desrosiers

Corinne Desrosiers was hired as the Dukes' fourth head lacrosse coach in program history in July 2018.

Desrosiers brings 10 years of head coaching experience to The Bluff, including the last four seasons at the helm of Florida Tech where she was named the first head coach in program history in 2013 and quickly turned the Panthers into a national contender.

Desrosiers led Florida Tech to a pair of NCAA Division II Tournament appearances and helped the Panthers advance to two Sunshine State Conference Tournament title games. At the conclusion of each of the last two seasons, Florida Tech ranked No. 6 in the country.

Under Desrosiers’ guidance, Florida Tech registered a program-record 17 wins in 2018. The Panthers earned their second straight bid to the NCAA Division II Tournament as the No. 2 seed in the nation, defeating Limestone by a score of 13-11 in the first round before falling to eventual national runner-up and conference foe Florida Southern in the quarterfinals. Desrosiers’ Florida Tech team posted a school-record 15-game winning streak in 2018 and was ranked as high as fifth in the country for the majority of the season.

In just the third season in program history in 2017, Desrosiers helped the Panthers earn their first-ever NCAA Tournament bid and their first NCAA Tournament victory with an upset over third-seeded East Stroudsburg 17-10 in a first-round matchup before dropping their quarterfinal contest to No. 2 seed Florida Southern. Florida Tech defeated five top-15 opponents during the 2017 campaign, collected its first SSC Tournament win and advanced to the conference tournament championship game for the first time.

Desrosiers was named the SSC Coach of the Year for the second season in a row in 2017, while the Panthers closed the year ranked sixth in the IWLCA Division II poll. In addition, all seven of Florida Tech’s losses in 2017 and ‘18 came against teams ranked in the top five in the nation. In that span, Desrosiers and the Panthers tallied 31 wins.
