Coach Corcoran directed the Camels defense in 2010 with a 14-3 record, their first-ever top seeding in the NESCAC Championship, a rise to #6 in US Lacrosse rankings, and their first appearance in the NCAA Division III Men's Lacrosse Championship. With Corcoran as defensive coordinator, the team limited opponents to an average of 7.1 goals per game, which earned the Camels second place in the league and 19th in the country. Corcoran coached two defensive All-Americans. The Camels defeated Tufts, Middlebury, Bowdoin, and Wesleyan who are among the national lacrosse powerhouses.

Before New London, Corcoran spent three years as the head coach at Simsbury High School in Simsbury, Connecticut, where he turned them into a lacrosse powerhouse. His combined record of 53-12, included an undefeated 2008 regular season, three trips to the Class L state semi-finals and state runner-up title in the 2009 Class L state championship. He was awarded the 2008 Connecticut US Lacrosse Coach of the Year and 2008 CHSLCA Class L Coach of the Year.

Corcoran coached 24 to the All-Conference Team, 14 players named to the Class L All-State team, two players named as All-Americans, and two as an Academic All-Americans, as well as the 2009 Hartford Courant Player of the Year.

In the past five years, Els has produced two All-Americans, one at each school, in Bobby Bleinstein (Conn. College) and Alex Castronovo (RPI). It was the first All-American award for both athletes.
