Coach Kevin Corrigan
Men’s Lacrosse Coach at the University of Notre Dame
Kevin Corrigan is entering his 31st season on the Fighting Irish sideline in 2018-19 and is the longest active tenured coach in men’s lacrosse at the Division I level. Since his arrival on campus in 1988, Corrigan has built Notre Dame into one of the premier men’s lacrosse programs in the country. He boasts a 285-132 (.683) record during his impressive Notre Dame tenure. Notre Dame has garnered 22 invitations to the NCAA Championship since 1990, including a current run of 12 straight trips, which is a program-best streak. Notre Dame and Maryland are the only two schools to appear in the NCAA Championship in each of the last 12 seasons. The Irish have made eight straight quarterfinal appearances and have received a national seed and a first-round home game nine times in the past 10 years. Corrigan’s Irish squads have won 18 regular-season conference titles, including tying for the 2016 Atlantic Coast Conference Championship, and garnered three conference tournament titles. His teams have also finished in the top-20 of the national rankings in 24 of the last 25 campaigns.
Corrigan has continued the tradition of academic success for the Notre Dame men’s lacrosse program. Since first competing on the varsity level in 1981, every Irish lacrosse senior has graduated. Three players since 1997 have gained CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, while 16 Notre Dame student-athletes have been named Scholar All-Americans by the USILA
