PROVIDENCE, R.I. - It was announced today that Chris Burdick has resigned as the men's lacrosse coach at Providence College. Burdick coached the Friars for 14 seasons. A national search to find his successor will begin immediately.
"I want to thank Chris for all his efforts and wish him the best in his future endeavors," Athletics Director Bob Driscoll said. "I believe our lacrosse program has a strong foundation and we are poised to move ahead into a new era in Friar lacrosse. We are about to begin construction on a new lacrosse stadium and a locker room facility. That combined with the fact that the BIG EAST is one of the premier conferences in the nation for lacrosse should make this a very appealing head coaching position."
"It has been an honor to serve as the lacrosse coach at Providence College for the past 14 years under the leadership of Fr. Shanley and Bob Driscoll," Burdick said. "I have tremendous belief in the players in the program and the players coming in. I believe the lacrosse program will be very strong for years to come."
