Casey Brodersen

Associate Head Coach

Brodersen joins Benson’s staff after spending the last 12 seasons at Bryant University, including the previous eight seasons as the program’s Associate Head Coach. The Bulldogs enjoyed unparalleled success during Brodersen’s tenure, including six Northeast Conference titles, five NCAA Tournament appearances and a trip to the NCAA Quarterfinals in 2014.
In 2021, Bryant posted their best start in NCAA Division I program history and went on to win its sixth NEC title. Brodersen’s impact was felt on the defensive side of the ball as he coached and mentored Bryant’s top-three defensive long poles – all of whom earned All-NEC honors. Bryant also excelled at the “X” under Brodersen’s watch as he helped develop some impressive talent year after year for the Bulldogs. The string of consistency at the faceoff “X” began with three-time All-American and three-time NEC Player of the Year Kevin Massa. Guided by Brodersen, Mass became the school’s first-ever First Team All-American.
Under Brodersen's tutelage, the Bulldogs' man-down defense has also been a mainstay in the national rankings, spending four-straight seasons ranked in the country's top-10 from 2012-15. Bryant's entire team defense has ranked 12th or better in five of the last eight seasons with two years placing fifth in the nation (2014, 2017).
Prior to his arrival at Bryant, he spent the 2009-10 academic year as an offensive assistant at Springfield College. While with the Pride, he worked specifically with the midfield and managed all aspects of the program’s faceoff unit.
Brodersen was a standout midfielder at Keene State in Keene, N.H., from 2005-09. The 2009 team captain and MVP, he was named a First Team All-Little East selection as a senior and was a four-year Keene State All-Academic Team selection. Brodersen graduated in 2009 with the Owls' all-time program record for ground balls in a game (13), season (83) and career (157).

Brodersen has also been a lacrosse camp coach since 2006, working such camps as the Blue Chip Lacrosse 225, Peak 200 Lacrosse Camp and Next Level Day Camp.
A native of Derry, New Hampshire, Brodersen graduated from Keene State in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in History.
