A 1999 graduate of UVa, he returned to his alma mater last season after serving as a volunteer assistant coach at Notre Dame in 2005, where he worked with goalies Joey Kemp and Stewart Crosland.
Wright earned three letters as a goalie on the Cavalier lacrosse team (1996 and 1998-99). He received the Doyle Smith Award for having the highest grade point average on the squad in 1998 and was co-winner of the team's Spirit Award as a freshman in 1996.
In addition to winning the national championship during his senior year in 1999, Virginia advanced to the 1997 NCAA finals and to the 1998 NCAA semifinals during his playing career. UVa also captured the 1999 ACC Tournament championship.
Wright received his bachelor's degree in English from UVa in May 1999 and his law degree in 2003.
While attending UVa's law school he served as a volunteer assistant coach for two seasons, including the Cavaliers' 2003 national title season. Following his graduation from law school that year, he spent nine months coaching in Australia.
A native of Virginia Beach, Va., Wright was a two-time all-prep standout in lacrosse at Norfolk Academy.
