McDermott Named UVa Men's Lacrosse Volunteer Assistant Coach

Cortland, N.Y., native joins coaching staff to work with face-off specialists and goalies

Tim McDermott is in his second season at Virginia after joining Dom Starsia's staff as a volunteer assistant coach in November 2012. McDermott is the older brother of former UVa faceoff specialist Brian McDermott.

"I couldn't be more pleased to announce Tim's addition to our staff," said Starsia upon the announcement. "I have known Tim for some time now and have come to admire him as a person and a student-athlete. He will work closely with our face-off men and goalies and will be involved in all aspects of the program. It will be a joy to continue to have the McDermott family around the program."

McDermott was a midfielder for three seasons at DIII Geneseo of the SUNY system, where he was a two-time All-American and led the NCAA in face-off win percentage in 2006. He graduated with a bachelor of science degree in business administration before transferring to Loyola in Baltimore for his final year of eligibility in 2008, while pursuing an MBA. McDermott's younger brother Brian was a member of UVa's 2010 ACC championship squad and the 2011 NCAA title team.

On a volunteer basis, McDermott has also coached various players, including working with athletes from Loyola and the club program at Richmond. During the 2011 and 2012 seasons he was a varsity coach at Deep Run High School in Richmond and in the summer of 2011 was a reserve player for Major League Lacrosse's Chicago Machine. McDermott's most recent volunteer job was with Cortland State in the fall of 2012.

The Cortland, N.Y., native currently resides in Charlottesville.
