Position:
Assistant Coach



Sean Kirwan is in his first season at Virginia and his third season under Lars Tiffany.


Kirwan spent two seasons at Brown running the offense under Tiffany. Under Kirwan's tutelage in 2016, the Brown offense was potent, leading the nation with 16.32 goals per game. Dylan Molloy was the recipient of the 2016 Tewaaraton Trophy and was named by the USILA its most outstanding player and attackman of the year. Kirwan helped change the landscape of college lacrosse in 2015 with a unique fast break offense that scored 237 goals, averaging 13.94 goals per game, fifth best in the nation.

Kirwan perfected his offensive approach at his alma mater, Tufts, guiding the Division III Jumbos' offense to an NCAA-leading 423 goals in 2014, the most all-time by any team in NCAA lacrosse history (all divisions). His Tufts squad also led the nation in team goals and assists (251). Kirwan coached three 100+ point scorers, the first time in NCAA history that three players from one team scored over 100 points in the same season.
 
A native of New Jersey, where he attended Mountain Lakes High School, Kirwan graduated from Tufts in 2012, where he broke single season and career goal scoring records with 66 goals in 2011 and 150 career goals. An All-American in 2011 and 2012, he was also an Academic All-American and team captain in 2012 as well as winning the NCAA Division III National Championship with the school in 2010.
