Now entering his third season in 2019, Matt Schairer has already racked up a multitude of accomplishments in his short tenure as the Bulldogs' head coach.
In 2018, Schairer led Dean to the program's first-ever New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) championship and a stellar 10-4 overall record. Several student-athletes scooped up all-conference accolades under Schairer's watchful eye and he himself was named the NECC Coach of the Year. The Bulldogs went an impressive 8-2 at home, which included a 20-8 win over Becker College in the conference title game.
Schairer's squad fared itself pretty well in his first campaign in 2017, going 9-6 overall which had thrilling victories over Salem State and Regis College.
Prior to his time at Dean, Schairer spent two years as an assistant coach at Endicott College as well as two years as an assistant at UMass-Lowell.
A standout student-athlete in his own right, Schairer spent one season at Quinnipiac University before transferring to Keene State where he enjoyed a stellar career. In his three years with the Owls, he earned Little East All-Conference (LEC) All-Conference honors three time, as well as All-New England and USILA North/South All-Star awards as a senior. A two-time captain and two-time team MVP, he graduated cum laude (3.60 GPA) with a degree in political science.
