Mercer head coach Kyle Hannan has resigned from his post following eight seasons at the helm of the Bears’ men’s lacrosse program. According to a press release, Hannan is resigning to pursue a business opportunity.
Associate head coach Chad Surman, who has been with the program since the 2015 season, has been elevated to interim head coach.
“I have been coaching collegiate athletics for the past 34 years,” Hannan said in a press release. “The time has come for me to begin an exciting new chapter of my life in the business sector of lacrosse. This is an amazing opportunity for my wife and two children.”
Hannan had led the Bears since 2013, compiling a 37-62 record over his eight seasons at the helm. This past season, Mercer was 6-1 prior to the Coronavirus Outbreak cancelling the remainder of the season in early March.
Suman will now lead the Bears on an interim basis. A Salisbury grad, Surman has been with the Bears since the 2016 season. He was previously at Lehigh and started his coaching career as a grad assistant at Salisbury.
