CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Tim McDermott has joined the Virginia men’s lacrosse program as a volunteer coach, as announced by head coach Dom Starsia. 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. “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.
“I've had the privilege to become acquainted with the Virginia lacrosse family through my brother's involvement with the program over the last several years,” said McDermott. “I'm very grateful for the opportunity to join a program that conducts itself in the highest regard from the top down. I'm eager to contribute in any way the coaches and staff see fit to assist this spring in our goal of making it back to playing on Memorial Day.”
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 this fall.
