Meet your coaching staff
Entering his 12th season as men's lacrosse Head Coach at Quinnipiac, Eric Fekete has pushed the Bobcats' program to new heights.
In the team's first Northeast Conference season, Fekete directed the Bobcats to a share of the NEC Regular Season Title in 2011. By virtue of a tie-breaker, QU went into the tournament as the #2 seed and advanced to the finals with a double overtime win over Robert Morris. The campaign ended with a setback in the championship game, but the Bobcats had already established new standards for the future of the program.Read Full Bio
Fekete came to Quinnipiac after serving seven seasons as an assistant coach, the last five at Fairfield University. Fekete also spent the 1996 season as an assistant at nationally-ranked Brown University.
While at Fairfield, Fekete was an integral part of the Stags' successful elevation at the Division I level. In 2001, Fairfield finished 7-8, including a 3-2 mark in the highly-competitive Great Western Lacrosse League - its first year as a member of the conference.
From 1997-1999, the Stags recorded an impressive 31-18 overall mark, including a remarkable 21-2 record in MAAC Men's Lacrosse League action which resulted in two league titles (1997 and 1998). In addition, Fairfield captured back-to-back ECAC Division I Championships, defeating Colgate, 9-7, in 1998 and Mount St. Mary's, 15-4, in 1999.
Before his arrival at Fairfield, Fekete spent one year as an assistant at Brown University. In 1996, the Bears ranked in the top-ten nationally and finished with a final 7-6 record, including a 3-3 mark in the Ivy League.
Fekete gained additional experience in 1994 when he coached the United State Under-19 team at the 1994 World Lacrosse Games Festival in Manchester, England. From 1992-1995, he was the head boy's varsity lacrosse coach at Duxbury (Mass.) High School, leading the school to four consecutive MIAA tournament berths.
Fekete got his start in collegiate coaching in 1989, serving three seasons on the staff at the University of Arizona.
A native of Duxbury, Mass., Fekete attended Skidmore College and graduated in 1989 with a B.S. in business. While at Skidmore, Fekete was a member of the men's lacrosse and ice hockey squads.
Bruce Frady is in his eighth season with the men's lacrosse program at Quinnipiac University. Frady has been instrumental in the success of the program, especially in the team's transition through conferences a few years back. Frady works with the Bobcats defensive unit and goalies while helping with the recruiting process as well. Frady played for three seasons at Eastern Connecticut State University as a goaltender before turning to the coaching ranks.
Bill Tully enters his first season as an assistant coach for the Quinnipiac men's lacrosse program. Tully comes to QU from the University of Detroit Mercy where he served as an assistant coach for the Titans last year.
