Merrimack College has named Brian Murphy ’03 and Jen Fox Sargent ’09 as head coaches of the baseball and women’s lacrosse programs respectively, as announced by Director of Athletics Jeremy Gibson.
The College launched its Faculty and Staff Campaign last spring, as part of Merrimack’s $50 million Together for Good Campaign.

Dr. McInnis and his team of faculty and staff ambassadors worked throughout the year to engage their colleagues and encourage participation to meet their objectives before year-end. They fostered interest in Together for Good through department presentations, trivia events, and challenges aimed at sparking friendly competitions for the highest giving participation levels. Dr. McInnis and his team also worked closely with the Office of Development and Alumni Relations to update colleagues on campaign news and initiatives and create excitement and interest in Together for Good.
The Faculty and Staff Campaign ambassadors worked tirelessly to spread the message of Together for Good and succeeded. As they rounded out 2017, their collective work has resulted in:
This Faculty and Staff Campaign was the first of its kind at Merrimack and served to engage staff in the success and momentum of the Campaign. Together for Good epitomizes the positive impact that can be made when the Merrimack community works together to advance the College’s goals. The Campaign continues to achieve record-breaking fundraising totals, raising approximately $20 million since launching in the fall of 2016.
