05/20/2013 – The architect of the women's lacrosse program at Aquinas College has been named the new Head Coach at Brevard College in North Carolina. Rogers will direct the fledgling program from it's beginning just as he did here at Aquinas College. Frank's four year stint with the Saints brought about a 73-13 record and two conference championships. Rogers also directed the Aquinas College men's & women's bowling teams during their inaugural season this past winter.
Coach Rogers has been involved in lacrosse for over 35 years as a player, coach, and official. Frank hails from Syracuse, New York where he learned and played the game of lacrosse. Rogers started his coaching career at Watertown High School in Northern New York and followed that with a stay at Auburn High School in Central New York. Rogers then headed West to Michigan where he coached the Western Michigan men's team for three seasons. After a short break he returned to coaching. Rogers started nine boys and girls programs in Southwest Michigan before leaving the high school ranks to coach the Western Michigan women's team. Following his time with the Broncos Frank was hired to start the Women's Lacrosse program at Aquinas College.
Athletic Director Terry Bocian comments, "I want to thank Coach Rogers for his efforts in making Aquinas Women's Lacrosse a first class program. I am very appreciative of Frank's dedication, but most appreciative of the foundation that he has given our "new" program on campus. He has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to build the program into a national contender. I wish him all the best as he heads to Brevard College to start a similar venture - "starting a program from scratch". I have no doubt that he will succeed."
A search for Rogers successor is now underway to fill both vacancies for the women's lacrosse job and the men's & women's bowling position.
