Drew Kelleher
Head Coach
Drew Kelleher is in his second year as the Head Coach of the Manhattan Men's Lacrosse program. 

In his first season in Riverdale, Kelleher helped the Jaspers to three wins, including a thrilling 11-10 come-from-behind victory over reigning MAAC Champion Marist. Additionally, Kelleher helped develop MAAC Rookie of the Year Parker Giarratana. Giarratana also earned All-MAAC Second Team honors after scoring 31 goals with 13 assists en route to notching 44 points.

A tireless recruiter, the Empire State native brought in a stellar 17-person recruiting class for the 2017 season.

Prior to his arrival at Manhattan, Kelleher was the assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Boston University for two seasons.


Kelleher’s time in Boston coincided with the program’s start, which saw a meteoric rise for the Terriers from infancy to a national ranking in 2015. Serving as offensive coordinator for the BU offense, his unit produced a three-goal spike to just over 10 per game from the program’s inaugural season while winning six games and ascending to a national ranking of No. 19 following an 18-11 victory over Bucknell.

Additionally, he helped develop three student-athletes into 20-goal and 40-point performers in 2014 while overseeing an attack that netted at least 10 goals in 10 of the Terriers’ 20 games.


Prior to ushering in the Boston U program, Kelleher spent the 2012 season as an assistant coach/offensive coordinator at MAAC rival Siena. During his one year in Loudonville, he helped the Saints to an 11-5 record and the MAAC regular season title while helping spearhead the nation’s fourth-ranked offensive attack at over 12 goals per game.


He began his coaching career with a two-year stint at Hamilton College from 2010-2011 as the Continentals posted a 21-7 record.

A four-year standout at Vermont, he capped his outstanding career with the Catamounts by ranking 11th nationally in goals (2.50) as a senior in 2009 en route to being named the America East Fans’ Choice Player of the Year.

His mother Jeanne, was a member of the college’s first female graduating class in 1978, while his father, Dan, graduated in 1977. In addition, his grandfather, Daniel, played basketball for the Jaspers from 1930-32.
