Men’s lacrosse announces Brian Duncan as assistant head coach
After recruiting six players with All-America honors, JU men’s lacrosse head coach Matt Kerwick has brought in another impressive name. Brian Duncan has been named as the first assistant coach in JU men’s lacrosse history and brings a wealth of experience with him.

For six years, Duncan has led the Community College of Baltimore County to four Region XX championships and three national championship appearances, including a national championship ring in 2004. During his tenure at CCBC, Duncan was also named the NJCAA National Coach of the Year and a four-time Maryland Juco Athletic Conference Coach of the Year.

“We’re really excited to have Brian join the staff,” Kerwick said. “It’s great to add an established, proven and accomplished coach like him to this young team. This addition will enable us to build a very strong foundation for JU lacrosse and it will be nice to have Brian’s experience to help take us to the next level.”

Duncan was able to capitalize on the talent-rich state of Maryland while at CCBC, producing 27 players with first team All-America honors and three national players of the year. As an assistant coach at CCBC, Duncan had three more NJCAA National Championship appearances.

“I want to thank Matt Kerwick for the opportunity here at JU,” Duncan said. “Growing the game of lacrosse in the south is going to be a great experience and challenge. I am excited about coaching at the Division 1 level after spending 11 seasons in junior college competition.”

In college, Duncan was a face-off specialist for UMBC. He recorded 211 F/O wins in his career and led the team in groundballs (91) his senior season.
