H. Christopher Rogers was named the Marymount University head men’s basketball coach, according to athletic director Bill Finney. Rogers is the fourth coach in the 22 seasons of MU men’s basketball.
Rogers, most recently a head assistant coach at Franklin & Marshall College, comes to Marymount with eight years of collegiate basketball experience at the NCAA Division III level.
“We are pleased to have Chris join our coaching staff,” said Finney. “Our search committee was impressed with his dedication and enthusiasm. He has the ability to take our program forward.”
“Chris has gained valuable experience at F&M under Glenn Robinson, the winningest coach in NCAA Division III men’s basketball,” Finney continued.
Rogers was at F&M for five seasons and was involved in all aspects of the basketball program including recruiting and practices where the teams won two regular season Centennial Conference championships and advanced to the 2009 Final Four.
Prior to F&M, Rogers was the head assistant at Lebanon Valley College for three seasons. LVC teams won the 2004 ECAC and made the Middle Atlantic Conference playoffs each year. Previously, he was operations assistant for men’s basketball at Villanova University and facilities and operations assistant at the University of Pennsylvania.
