Quinnipiac University Director of Athletics and Recreation Jack McDonald and Women’s Lacrosse Head Coach Danie Caro announced the hiring of Brittany Hauser (East Northport, N.Y.) as an assistant coach on May 20, 2010. Hauser recently completed her senior season with the Bobcats, wrapping up a four-year career that saw three appearances as a member of the All-Northeast Conference Second Team. One of the best defenders during her time at Quinnipiac, Hauser will work closely with the defense and goalkeepers as well as assisting with day-to-day operations and student-athlete recruiting as a member of the coaching staff.

“I am extremely pleased to welcome Brittany to my coaching staff,” Caro said. “She had an outstanding playing career for us and I expect that she’ll be just as successful as a coach.”

“I am very excited to join the coaching staff at Quinnipiac. Being able to coach at my alma mater means a lot to me, and I am grateful to Jack McDonald and the entire athletic department for the opportunity,” Hauser said. “I look forward to working with Coach Caro and building upon the recent success the team has had.”

Hauser was an integral part of the Bobcats’ run to three straight NEC Championship Games from 2008 to 2010. During her final season as a player, she was named an assistant captain for her leadership both on and off the field.

“Brittany has first-hand knowledge of what’s it’s like to be a student-athlete at Quinnipiac, and she knows our program’s history, challenges, and expectations. This knowledge gives her a unique advantage and will allow her to hit the ground running as we head into the summer recruiting season.” Caro said.

In addition to her role as a player for the Bobcats the last four years, Hauser also served in numerous assistant coaching capacities for local youth teams and camps. In 2006 and 2007, she served as the assistant coach for one of the Long Island Yellow Jackets and the Long Island Hornets club teams. She also spent time during the last few summers as a coach at the Just 4 Girls Lacrosse Camp and the Game Breaker Women’s Lacrosse Camp.
