Chuck Wilbur has been the head coach at OCC for 17 years. Wilbur just announced that he is stepping down from his coaching duties and will transition into a different role with the college, retention specialist.

In his 17 years at OCC Wilbur has achieved an overall record of 266-15 that includes 11 NJCAA championships as well as 107-game winning streak that lasted from 2010 to 2016. It has been an incredible career for Coach Wilbur and he got to end it the right way as the Lazers won their 11th NJCAA championship in 2018.

Statement from Coach Wilbur

"I am very excited to be taking on this new challenge as retention specialist at OCC. One of the most rewarding parts of being head coach at OCC for 17 years is that I get to work with students every day, helping them become not just great players, but great students and great leaders, I am so proud of the accomplishments that the OCC Lazers have had over the years and of the privilege I have had to serve as their head coach. At this point in my career and in my life, it's time for new head coach to take the Lazers to the next level and for me to take on this new opportunity and new professional challenge." 

Coach Wilbur has had a great career and has impacted very many people along the way. He has been a very instrumental part of developing great lacrosse players and men, especially in the Native American population. For that the lacrosse community will always be grateful and respect the true success of Chuck Wilbur during his time at Onondaga Community College.
