Merrimack is hiring Michael Sciamanna — the Saint Anselm head coach from 2016-24 — to be its next men's lacrosse coach, the university announced Friday afternoon.

Sciamanna replaces Mike Morgan, who departed Merrimack prior to the America East tournament. Sciamanna led Saint Anselm to the NCAA semifinals in 2024 and owns a career 82-42 record.

Before his time at Saint Anselm, Sciamanna spent eight years at Endicott, where he led the offense, as well as the ride and clear. Endicott made four NCAA tournament appearances while Sciamanna was on staff.

Merrimack went 6-9 in 2024 and lost in the first round of the America East tournament to UAlbany. Morgan resigned just about a week after a Merrimack player made a racist remark toward an Indigenous opponent on UAlbany. That player was subsequently kicked off the team.

According to Inside Lacrosse, 18 Merrimack players are in the NCAA Transfer Portal, with at least three already finding new homes.
