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 sixth season with the U-M varsity lacrosse program.
Broschart has spent his tenure as a varsity coach as the Wolverines defensive coordinator, and employed an up-tempo, fast-sliding defensive system for the Wolverine defensive.
In 2016, Broschart guided All-Big Ten honorable mention selection Chase Brown, the first long stick in the programs varsity tenure to garner all-conference accolades. During the 2015 campaign, he manned a defensive unit that set a program record for goals allowed in a season 150, eclipsing the previous mark of 165 that was set during the 2013 season. During the 2014 season, he led the top man-down unit in the ECAC and ranked No. 11 nationally as the unit killed off 77 percent opponents chances. He also mentored ECAC All-Freshman selection Andrew Hatton, as well as a defensive unit that was No. 2 in the conference in caused turnovers per game and 26th-nationally with 7.44 per contest.
In 2013, he led the U-M man-down unit to a national-ranking of No. 18, as the Wolverines killed off 69 percent of opponents man-up opportunities.
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, his 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.
He was also a standout player as a close defender at New York Institute of Technology from 1998-2001, earning three All-America honors, and was team captain in 2001. He finished his career with 42 points, and 201 ground balls, which ranks No. 5 in school history.
Following the conclusion of his playing career, he served as defensive coordinator in 2002. That year, the team finished 14-1 and won the NYCAC Conference Championship before falling to Limestone in the NCAA Division II Championship.
Broschart resides in Dexter with his wife, Keekan, and his two children, Hadley & Case.
