while at Brown.
Both of his assistants, Kip Turner on D and Goal, and Sean Kirwan, are super talented. And both are young..not sure Kirwan is 25 yet and Kip Turner is a bit older, around 29. He may or may not still be playing MLS.
Kirwan is allegedly the architect of the run-and-gun offense that Brown employed and Tufts uses, as well.
And Turner went to UVA, where he played for Starsia (and of course Lars Tiffany played there as well).
Do you take a chance on one of the young guys? Or, here's a thought, bring back Starsia (to his alma mater) to let him coach a year or two?
Permutations are endless....
candidates per what folks have been posting on Laxpower. Kirwan played for Daly and learned the offense from him. Daly took Tufts from literally nothing to 3 time D-3 champ and multiple time NESCAC champ, arguably the best overall conference in D-3.
..and is also something of an offensive whiz, as well. My nephew went to Colby (prior stop to Amherst) when he was there and had nothing but great things to say about his standing on campus, let alone the lax field.
NESCAC lacrosse is awfully solid and both Daly and Thompson are innovate. Plus NESCAC and Ivy Leagues are pretty similar in their approaches to athletics and academics.
Or was that Shays I'm thinking of?

Can we infer he got a raise from that language? Or was he actually worried about Jack's assessment of his body of work?
The phrasing just strikes me as a little odd --as if there's more to the story that might not ever get out in public.
And Swarbrick deserves credit for retaining Corrigan. I've been more impressed with Swarbrick's retention decisions than his hiring decisions. Earlier I had flashbacks to when we let Paul Mainieri get away to LSU. That, of course, was on Kevin White's neglectful watch.
Now Corrigan needs to get the national championship monkey off his back. But I'm glad we don't have to replace him now.
To this. For one, as you stated, EBMB was the Athletic Director then. For another, LSU's program was clearly a step above ND's in baseball. I'm not certain that's the case with Virginia lacrosse as compared to ND. In fact, right now I'd say ND's lacrosse program is in better shape than Virginia's. Virginia's advantages over us right now are limited to tradition and location, with each dwindling in significance with each passing year.
None of this is meant to diminish Virginia's program, but merely to acknowledge that our program is in better shape than we often realize.
to another school. Just another area where he's outperformed the worst AD in our collective lifetimes.
accepted it yet,
"A source close to Virginia’s search for a new men’s lacrosse coach is indicating that 28-year Notre Dame lacrosse coach Kevin Corrigan will let UVa know by Wednesday morning whether he will accept an offer to succeed Dom Starsia."
That is incredible. You just don't walk away that easily - despite his affinity for UVA, which he has never been shy about.
...but then again, he was as good as gone according to several UVA posts.
Whew, 50% of your life -- 28 years -- in one job. What a run!
Here's an article posted this morning about the developments thus far.
...hasn't posted anything about this.
Nothing new being reported yet.
Note: If you want to google this, I would suggest adding something along the line of Notre Dame, Virginia or lacrosse to your search terms. It seems there's an actor who shares the same name, Mr. Kruger's directive to the contrary notwithstanding.
between 12-year-olds regarding which stick is the best. Our board has come to believe that the less they say the better off everyone is.
