Ken Broschart was hired as an assistant coach for the U-M varsity men's lacrosse program on June 22, 2011, and is entering his second season with the U-M varsity lacrosse program.
Broschart spent his first season as a varsity coach as the Wolverines defensive coordinator, and employed an up-tempo, fast-sliding defensive system for Team One. Broschart was also responsible for the transformation of short-stick defender Rob Healy's move from the midfield to close defender, as Healy primarily marked the opposing team's top attacker in his first year as a longstick defender.
He spent the previous four seasons with the Michigan club program, working with the defense in 2011. He spent his first three years working with the offense as the Wolverines scored 15.46 goals per game in 2008, 16.43 in 2009 and 16.13 in 2010. The Wolverines were 76-2 during Broschart's time on the sidelines, winning three national championships (2008, '09, '10). He also ran the strength and conditioning program for the team while assisting in all areas of recruiting.
Prior to coming to Ann Arbor, Broschart served as head coach of the club program at the University of Arizona for four years. During his tenure, he recorded a 57-24 (.704) record, guiding the Wildcats to three WCLL finals and four MCLA National Championship tournament appearances.
Broschart was also named the Western Collegiate Lacrosse League Coach of the Year in 2004. Broschart brings a wealth of national coaching experience to the table as well, with two stints as a member of the USA West Team coaching staff. As the head coach in 2007, Broschart's team won the Berlin Open, and as an assistant in 2005, where he coached alongside Paul, the squad took home the Asian Pacific Games championship.
