Quinnipiac has fired head coach Eric Feteke after an evaluation of the program according to a report from Florida Lacrosse News. This firing comes after the players were suspended amid "alleged" violations back on September 23rd.

The investigation into the program uncovered some issues with hazing as well as binge drinking according to multiple reports and sources. This behavior is obviously looked down upon and not acceptable or tolerated by any university or athletic department. 

Feteke spent 17 years at the helm of the Bobcats men's lacrosse program as he coached them through three conferences, the America East, NEC, and now the MAAC. In 2016 Feteke would lead the Bobcats to the NCAA tournament as they went 6-0 in conference play and won the MAAC championship. They would then fall to Maryland in the 2nd round of the 2016 NCAA tournament. Last season the Bobcats went 9-6 and lost in the first round of the MAAC tournament to Canisius.

Bobcats assistant coach Mason Poli has been appointed the interim head coach and the team suspension has been extended until the end of the year. Disciplinary action has been handed down to certain individual players that were directly involved.
