Hampton head coach Lloyd Carter will be retiring from coaching effective on June 30th, and thus stepping down from his position at Hampton.
Carter has been at the helm of Hampton lacrosse from it’s inception as a club program in 2013. He helped make history by taking the program to DI back in 2016, becoming the first HBCU to have lacrosse since Morgan State dropped the sport in 1981. Since then the Pirates have continued to develop as a DI program as they still are transitioning from the club to DI level.
Carter played lacrosse at Morgan State until the program was dropped in 1981. He started his coaching career in 1999 Northwestern High School (Md.) where he led the program for nearly a decade. Carter also helped establish and coached the club program at Morgan State from 2004-2008 before joining Hampton in 2011 when the process started of adding lacrosse.
During his time at the helm of the Pirates he led Hampton to a 12-25 record. Carter helped lead the Pirates to their first ever victory in 2017 as they beat Greensboro 7-5. This past season Hampton boasted their first winning season as they went 6-5 overall.
