Dan Carson enters his second season as the offensive coordinator assistant coach in 2018. In his first year, Carson helped guide the Falcons to a SoCon championship title and the team’s fifth visit to the NCAA tournament in the 2017 season.
Carson joins the Falcons by way of Princeton University where he worked with the face-off unit and assisted with all facets of the Princeton program's on and off field development.
While coaching for the Tigers, Carson worked closely with Princeton’s rising stars. First-team All-Ivy League selection Zach Currier and faceoff man Sam Bonafede, who earned an All-Ivy League selection honorable mention, both developed their game under the guidance of Carson.
Prior to his stint with Princeton, Carson helped Richmond lacrosse to a perfect regular season in their inaugural year in the Southern Conference. While at Richmond, Carson worked with the Spiders' face-off unit, helping it go from a .362 winning percentage in its first year in Division I in 2014 to within two won face-offs of .500 the year before. Carson also helped Richmond to the No. 2 scoring defense and man-down defense in Division I.
Before spending a year at Richmond, Carson was the head coach at Grove City College, where he was named the CCLA Division II Coach of the Year after an 11-5 record and a spot in the MCLA D-II quarterfinals in 2014. He has also coached at Ohio Valley University, where he earned his master's degree, and Yorktown High School in Virginia, the high school he attended.
Carson is a 2012 graduate of Marymount College, where he scored 63 goals and had 98 points as a four-year starting attackman in lacrosse while also lettering three times in swimming and serving as team captain for both sports. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in history.
