WESTON, Mass. – Regis College and its athletic department is proud to announce Randy Fraser as their new Head Lacrosse Coach. Fraser brings a wealth of coaching experience, most recently as head coach of the Junior USA National Box Lacrosse Team.
Fraser becomes the third head coach in Regis men’s lacrosse program history, replacing Josh Blumenthal who helped lead the Pride to a 25-36 mark during his four years, including the program’s first ECAC postseason tournament appearance in 2014.
Known for his leadership, passion and intensity both on and off the field, Randy Fraser is a true ambassador for the game of lacrosse. With over 30 years of field and box experience, Fraser’s ability to recognize talent and build teams places him amongst the game’s best youth, elite, college, and professional coaches.
“We are very excited about bringing Coach Fraser into our program,” said athletic director Rob Riley. “Randy’s lifelong experiences in lacrosse and knowledge of the game should help take the Regis men’s lacrosse program to the next level.”
After a successful career at Springfield College (1986-1990), Fraser established himself as one of the most dominant American box lacrosse players in the country. He amassed over 200 career points in 81 games throughout 13 seasons in the NLL with the Boston Blazers (1991-1997), New York Saints (1998-1999) and Buffalo Bandits (2001-2004). He was also the Captain of Team USA (2003), scoring one goal and ten assists at the World Games in Canada, ultimately leading the Team to a Bronze Medal.
Fraser began his coaching career as an assistant coach for both Dean and American International Colleges, and also as the Defensive Coordinator for his alma mater, where he helped lead the Pride to the Division II National Championship in 1994. Professionally, he has enjoyed tenures as Assistant Coach for the Boston Cannons (2006), New York Titans (2006) Boston Blazers (2007-2011) and Men’s USA National box lacrosse team (2007, 2011), and was most recently the head coach of the USA Junior National box lacrosse team.
Since 1990, Fraser has been deeply committed to coaching youth lacrosse and elite teams – his lifetime of experience and passion for the game allows him to continue to offer exceptional clinics, camps and private instruction to players of all abilities throughout New England. His passion for the game also affords him the luxury of remaining an active, impactful player in elite adult leagues and summer tournaments around the country.
Fraser hails from Long Island, New York and currently resides in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
“I am very happy and excited for the great opportunity to be the head coach of lacrosse at Regis College as it has always been a goal of mine to one day be the head coach of a collegiate lacrosse team where I could take on the challenge and responsibility of leading and building a successful team,” said Fraser.
“I feel a great sense of responsibility in leading a group of young men in their precious four years of college and I hope to enhance their growth as men, and the experiences of playing college lacrosse with great team and individual experiences and accomplishments. I would like to thank Robert Riley our Athletic Director for entrusting me with this responsibility and his full support for a successful future.”
