11-time national champ OCC men's lax coach stepping down

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - 11-time national champion Onondaga Community College men’s lacrosse coach Chuck Wilbur is stepping down to take on a new role at the college.

After 17 years at the helm of the Lazers’ program, Wilbur has accepted a position as the school’s retention specialist.

OCC says Wilbur will focus on “student athletes and native American students to help them enroll and succeed at OCC.”

OCC is launching a national search to find a replacement to Wilbur.

Wilbur leaves the Lazers’ program with a 266-15 record.

He was named the NJCAA Lacrosse Coaches Association National Coach of the Year in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2017 and 2018.

Wilbur’s players’ accomplishments include:
- 25 players who have become professional lacrosse players
- 61 have transferred to Division I colleges
- 96 have transferred to Division II colleges
- 101 have transferred to Division III colleges; and those that have transferred have won a combined 34 NCAA National Championships

Wonder if they stay in house or go local and grab someone like archer at JD, or like they say a nation wide search.
You have to imagine they're gonna grab someone who has a very very good travk record and proven success.

Well...what about Wilbur to SU...it's long past time...just sayin'
Yup. In this new role he's in that assists players on getting the academics to go to Division 1 universities, he will get Austin to cuse, then from there he becomes the coach after Desko wins one this year and retires.
