Michigan State Men’s Lacrosse has named Brandon Schwind Head Coach. Schwind comes to Michigan State after coaching at Division III school, Fontbonne University in St. Louis, MO from 2007 to 2010, and the past two seasons at Haslett High School in Michigan.
“I am very excited about the position I have been given at Michigan State University,” Schwind says. “I feel I have been well groomed for the job and I appreciate the opportunity I have been given to take Michigan State to a higher level in the MCLA.” When asked about the recent success of the program and how that will carry over to next season Schwind said, “expectations are high. Plainly stated we, as a team, will expect the best from one another on a daily basis. We will execute the fundamentals at an acute level.”
Before his coaching stints at both Fontbonne University and Haslett High School, Schwind attended Wittenberg University where he was a four-year starter at close defense, 3x All Conference selection, team MVP, and team captain in his senior year.
“We are all excited about bring in Coach Schwind into the Michigan State Lacrosse family,” says team Vice President Spencer Martin. He added, “myself and the other officers were constantly updating the team on our progress with potential coaching candidates. As a team we felt that Coach Schwind has the knowledge and philosophy that will get us that National Championship we are all looking for.”
