Head coach J.B. Sheridan has added Michael Sullinger as an assistant coach for the Yellow Jackets men’s lacrosse program.

“I am very excited about Michael joining our staff,” Sheridan said. “As a program, we are very fortunate to have an assistant coach with his experience and passion for the game. Michael has spent his playing and coaching careers around great mentors and competition, which will be invaluable as he passes his knowledge and experience on to our team in order to help us continue to grow as a program. He will be primarily working with our offense and will be a pivotal part in our success on the field, recruiting, and most importantly, mentoring our student-athletes to be successful members of the Randolph-Macon community.”

Sullinger graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in sports and leisure management with a concentration in sports performance.

“I am very excited to be joining Randolph-Macon," Sullinger said. "Coach Sheridan has done a great job and I am looking forward to helping grow this program in the upcoming years."

Sullinger lettered all four years and was a two-time All-Conference selection. He led the Little West Conference twice in assists with 30 in 2011 and 36 in 2012 and recorded the most points in the conference with 81 in 2012. Sullinger was named a captain and was selected to the All-New England team and played in the East-West All-Star game in 2012.

In 2013, Sullinger was a student assistant coach. He helped the team claim the Little East Conference tournament. The Warriors began the season 3-7, but finished the season 10-8 and made an NCAA Tournament appearance. Sullinger coached two All-Americans during that season.

For the previous two seasons, Sullinger was an assistant coach at Muhlenberg College.
