West Long Branch, N.J. (7/25/17) – Kean University head women's lacrosse coach Jordan Trautman has announced her resignation after accepting the head coaching position at Division I Monmouth University.
Trautman will become the sixth head coach in Hawks history when she begins her tenure on August 2nd.
Trautman collected a 51-37 record in her five seasons at Kean and her teams appeared in the postseason in three of the five years at the helm of the program.
The head coaching position at Kean was the first for Trautman, who came to Union after assistant coaching stops at Yale University and the United States Naval Academy. While at Navy she worked with head coach Cindy Timchal, the NCAA's all-time leader in career wins for any division, in men's or women's college lacrosse.
Trautman was a four year starter for Georgetown University where she earned All-American honors her junior season. A two-time captain, she helped lead Georgetown to three NCAA Tournament appearances, two Big East Championships and an overall mark of 49-25. During her senior campaign, she was second team All-Big East and a North-South All-Star selection, while also appearing on the watch list for the Tewaaraton Trophy as the top player in women's college lacrosse. She was twice invited to try out for the USA national team, most recently in the summer of 2014.
"I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of Kean Athletics and this tremendous University," stated Trautman. "I feel very fortunate to have worked with such an incredible administration and alongside so many extremely talented coaches. I thank each and every one of them for making my time here at Kean so wonderful. Kean University will always be a very special place to me and my family and we are very lucky to have been a part of the amazing Cougar Athletic Family. I am so proud of what our program has accomplished over the past five seasons, and I am excited to see what the future holds for Kean Women's Lacrosse."
A national search for a full-time head coach will take place immediately.
