Alma Mater: Pfeiffer 2012
Brevard head men’s lacrosse coach and Director of Lacrosse Kevin Anderson announced the hiring of Michael Markland as his assistant in August 2014.
Markland, an Alexandria, Virginia native, was a goalie for the nationally-ranked lacrosse team at Pfeiffer University and earned academic all-conference honors. He and Anderson were teammates for two years with the Falcons.
“We are very excited to have Michael Markland join our coaching staff as our program enters its second year of existence,” said Anderson. “Michael brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm that will make an immediate impact on defensive side of the field. The energy he will bring to our recruiting efforts will help attract some of the best and brightest student athletes in the country.”
Most recently, Markland served as an assistant coach at Fort Mill High School in the Charlotte suburb of Fort Mill, South Carolina, where he helped the Yellow Jackets win the state championship in 2014. He has also coached travel teams.
“This is an opportunity that I’ve been waiting for for quite some time,” said Markland. “I’ve always wanted to become a collegiate coach. This is a dream job for me at this point in my life.”
Markland graduated from Pfeiffer University in 2012 with a degree in Sport Management.
