Keith Bugbee

Keith Bugbee will enter his 37th season as the head men’s lacrosse coach at Springfield College during the 2019-20 academic year.

Currently one of the winningest coaches in collegiate lacrosse history, Bugbee also serves as an assistant professor of physical education at Springfield College.

Under Bugbee’s leadership, Springfield College men’s lacrosse remains one of the top programs in the country, as under his direction, the Pride has produced an overall record of 401-198, good for a winning percentage of .669.

Bugbee's teams have competed in 33 post-season tournaments, including 24 NCAA Tournaments, and won a national championship in 1994. 49 of his players have received All-America recognition, including Bob Felt, who was voted the 1994 U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Division II Player of the Year.

In 2019, in the Pride's 11-10 win over Coast Guard in the NEWMAC Championship, Bugbee became just the fifth coach in the history of collegiate men's lacrosse to capture 400 victories, and the only to ever win his first 400 games at just one institution.

Bugbee became just the seventh coach in NCAA men's lacrosse history to reach the 300 career win milestone after he bested Mass. Maritime, 21-4, on April 23, 2011. The following Saturday, Bugbee's squad toppled MIT, 15-5, bringing Bugbee's win total to 301 as he passed legendary coach Dick Garber for the most wins in New England Lacrosse history.

Bugbee is a 1979 graduate of Keene State (N.H.) College where he lettered in lacrosse and soccer while earning his bachelor’s degree in physical education. He received his master’s degree in physical education from Springfield College.
