Position:
Assistant Coach



Kip Turner is in his first season at Virginia and his seventh season under Lars Tiffany.

At Brown, Turner helped develop All-Ivy goalies Matt Chriss and Will Round, as well as a slew of young goalkeepers on the Bears squad, including Kelly, who matured into an All-American and a unanimous first team All-Ivy selection. Turner also was the face-off coach for the Bears, developing Will Gural into one of the top face-off men in the nation in 2015 and 2016.

Turner also practiced his trade in the professional ranks, including leading the Chesapeake Bayhawks to two consecutive MLL Championships in 2012 and 2013. Turner was originally selected second overall in the Major League Lacrosse draft by the Boston Cannons, the highest goalie ever picked in a draft. He made an immediate impact, being named the Cannons' Defensive MVP in 2008. A three-time MLL Defensive Player of the Week in 2010, Turner was named the MLL Goalkeeper of the Year for his outstanding play. Turner was also selected the starting goalie in the MLL All-Star game in 2013. After a nine-year stint in the MLL, Turner decided to retire in the spring of 2016.

A 2007 graduate of the University of Virginia with a bachelor's degree in government, Turner was a four-year letterwinner for the Cavaliers. He was the UVA defensive MVP in 2006, leading the Cavaliers to the ACC Championship and NCAA title. Turner was an All-ACC first team selection in 2007, and named to the All-ACC Tournament team in 2006 and 2007.

Turner was inducted into the Severn High School Hall of Fame in the spring of 2016 for his achievement in soccer, ice hockey and lacrosse. Turner is married to Emy Deyhle Turner.
