The SUNY Oswego intercollegiate athletics department has named Drew Bezek its next men’s lacrosse head coach. Bezek started in early December in his new role, beginning preparations for the upcoming spring season.
The Lowville, N.Y., native comes to Oswego by way of Hamilton College, where he spent the last three years as an assistant coach. While with the Continentals, Bezek was the defensive coordinator, helping in the effort for both practice and game planning. He also helped recruit and evaluate players, assisting one student-athlete to NESCAC Player of the Year and eight others to All-Conference accolades.
Bezek was also on the staff that guided the 2012 and 2013 Hamilton squads to the NESCAC postseason tournament.
Before heading to Hamilton, Bezek served as interim head coach at Vassar College. During his one-year tenure at Vassar, Bezek led the program to its first-ever Liberty League win and placed a student-athlete on the All-Liberty League Second Team.
In his playing days, the defenseman spent his career at Division II powerhouse Le Moyne College. Bezek was a three-time First Team All-American from 2008-2010 while winning Division II Defensive Player of the Year as a junior and senior. He was also selected as captain during his senior season and was part of the 2007 NCAA Championship team as a freshman.
Bezek graduated from Le Moyne with a bachelor’s degree in business.
