More than a month after Augustana College's first ever men's lacrosse coach resigned, the school has announced the hiring of a new head coach. Dan Torie, from Franklin and Marshall College, will replace Kyle Hart, who built the men's lacrosse program.

Torie has assistant coaching experience at three NCAA Division Three institutions. In 2014, he helped lead Franklin and Marshall to an NCAA Division Three final ranking of 18th.

Last season, the Vikings had a record of 14 games to 5, and earned the school's first ever NCAA Division Three post-season bid.

In August, Hart resigned after accepting a head coaching position at Wheaton College.
