Ryan Browning enters his second season on Dom Starsia's staff as a volunteer coach. He comes to Charlottesville most recently from Goucher College in Baltimore where he was an assistant coach in 2011.
Browning works with the UVa face-off position, goalies and the defense.
"I am very pleased to announce that Ryan Browning will be joining our staff as the volunteer assistant for this coming 2012 season," said Starsia. "He comes to Charlottesville with the highest recommendations and quality experience. He is an enthusiastic young coach who wants to make this his profession. While he will work most closely with the face-off men, goalies and defense, he will find himself involved in all aspects of the program. We welcome some new influences on the practice field and look forward to his overall contribution."
Browning previously held the position of senior assistant coach and recruiting coordinator during the 2010 lacrosse season at Washington College. He also served as the head coach of the MIAA boys' lacrosse team at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel High School in Baltimore during the 2009 season. Browning led Mount Carmel to highest win total of the decade.
A 2008 graduate of Salisbury University, Browning played in three NCAA Division III Championship games with the Sea Gulls, winning NCAA titles in 2007 and 2008 as their long stick midfielder. Prior to his three years at Salisbury, Browning played one year of lacrosse at Division I UMBC.
Browning played high school lacrosse at Calvert Hall in Baltimore, earning All-MIAA honors as a senior. He was a member of the Cardinals' 2003 MIAA Conference Championship team and was also an All-MIAA football player as a senior.
Browning is no stranger to Virginia athletics and the surrounding region. His father, Skip, and uncle, Lee, played football for the Cavaliers during the mid-1970's. His grandfather is coach Phil Browning, long time highly successful coach of the Fluvanna Flying Flucos.
Browning received his bachelor of arts in history from Salisbury and is currently pursuing his master degree in athletic program leadership and administration at Goucher College.
The native of Baltimore, Md., currently resides in Charlottesville.
