Today’s guest is Sean Doherty, Head Coach of Hamden Hall Country Day School in Hamden, CT!

Coach Doherty is a Worcester, Mass native and has been around the game for several decades! After high school he played collegiately at Worcester State College before jumping directly into coaching. He spent time as an assistant at his alma mater under fellow podcast guest (and my college Head Coach), Tom Moore. He soon after became an Assistant on staff at Division II powerhouse, Assumption.

Next up was a successful run at Holy Cross and a brief stop at Western Kentucky before taking over the program at Division III, Salem State. After his run at Salem State he reunited with Coach Moore at Quinnipiac University, which is where our relationship began! He is entering year 8 at Hamden Hall this fall.
