Keegan Wilkinson, the Red Foxes’ top assistant for the last four years, has been tabbed to take over the school’s men’s lax program.

Wilkinson takes over for Scott Nelson, who accepted the head-coaching job at Binghamton in mid-May.

Nelson was named 2011 MAAC coach of the year after leading the Red Foxes to their second straight winning season.
