Connor Buczek

Former men’s lacrosse great Connor Buczek ’15 was promoted to Head Coach.

He serves as the offensive coordinator and his duties include coordinating the extra-man offense, working with the goalies, and running the substitution box during games.

In his first season as a full-time assistant, Buczek helped goalie Christian Knight '18 to the best season of his career, posting the ninth-best save percentage in the nation (.558), while ranking 14th in the country in saves per game (11.36). Back-up goalie, Caelahn Bullen, was also outstanding in relief of an injured Knight, posting a 5-0 record while saving .570 percent and posting a goals-against average of 7.73.

As a volunteer, Buczek was primarily responsible for coaching goalies and running the substitution box during games. During that time, Buczek, a recipient of a prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship, was a student in Cornell's Johnson Graduate School of Management. One of the best business school's in the country, he was in rare company, as one of just two individuals, and the only one from Cornell, to be admitted directly from undergraduate studies.
