Jim Rogalski enters his fifth season on the Lafayette coaching staff as the 19th head coach in the program's 86-year history. Rogalski was previously the head coach at the University of Scranton.

At Scranton, Rogalski led the Royals to the 2011 Landmark Conference Championship and the program's first NCAA Tournament appearance in his first season on the sidelines. He compiled an 18-15 record after two consecutive winning seasons and also coached Scranton's first All-American this past year.

Prior to taking over at Scranton, Rogalski spent six seasons on the coaching staff at Rutgers, beginning in 2004. He spent three seasons as the head assistant lacrosse coach before being promoted to associate head coach in 2007.

In his first three seasons under Jim Stagnitta at Rutgers, Rogalski handled various coaching and administrative duties, including game and practice planning, recruiting, monitoring NCAA compliance, as well as organizing clinics for local youth players and youth coaches. In his role as associate head coach, he oversaw the Scarlet Knights' recruiting efforts, which resulted in nationally-ranked recruiting classes by Inside Lacrosse magazine in 2007 and 2008 and commitments from five High School All-Americans for the 2011 season.

He has also served as an assistant coach at Drexel University, Washington & Lee University, Goucher College, Western New England College, and St. Mary's College of Maryland, his alma mater.

Rogalski's time at Drexel spanned three years, when he served as the defensive and recruiting coordinators. In his first season with the Dragons, the team recorded nine wins, the fourth-most in the program's history at the time. He also coached three players who earned All-Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) honors and another who was named the conference's rookie of the year in 2002.

During his undergraduate days at St. Mary's, Rogalski was a four-year letterman and three-year starter, in addition to a two-time All-Capital Athletic Conference honoree.

Rogalski is the owner of Ski Lax, Inc., and co-owner of Coast to Coast Lacrosse Camp, Inc. He and his wife, Susan, reside in South Abington, Pa. with their two daughters, Ella and Lia, and son, Colton.
