Cory McNeill was named an assistant coach at UVa in May 2011. Virginia finished the 2011-12 season with a 25-11 overall record, the most wins since a 25-win season in 1999-2000. The Cavaliers advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2012 Women's National Invitation Tournament (WNIT).
McNeill, a native of Baltimore, Md., came to UVa after spending four seasons at Georgetown University (2007-11). During that time period, the Hoyas continued one of the nation's most impressive turnarounds, earning back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths (2010 and 2011) for the first time in program history.
McNeill served as Georgetown's defensive coordinator all four of his seasons, helping the Hoyas become one of the nation's leaders in forced turnovers and defensive field goal percentage.
In 2011, the Hoyas advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the second time in school history. Georgetown had the 2009 BIG EAST Freshman of the Year and five All-BIG EAST conference selections during McNeill's tenure.
McNeill helped the Hoyas ink a national top-10 recruiting class in 2008.
McNeill was selected to attend Nike's Villa 7 Coaches Consortium in 2010 and 2011 as well as the ACE program in 2009.
Prior to his time at Georgetown, McNeill spent five seasons as an assistant coach at Coppin State (2002-07). During McNeill's tenure, Coppin State earned two Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Championships, three regular-season MEAC Championships, two NCAA Tournament berths and a WNIT appearance.
While at Coppin State, McNeill was the offensive coordinator and the MEAC Player of the Year came from an Eagles' squad for four-consecutive years.
McNeill played collegiate basketball at Morgan State and received his bachelor's degree in finance in 2002. He earned his master's degree in public administration from the University of Baltimore in 2005.
McNeill and his wife, fellow-assistant coach Kim McNeill, are the proud parents of a twin son and daughter, Cayden and Gabrielle, who were born Jan. 4, 2013.
