Marr Named Albany Coach

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Scott Marr, who previously was an assistant coach at the University of Maryland, has been named head men's lacrosse coach at the University at Albany, as Director of Athletics and Recreation Dr. Lee McElroy announced today. Marr, the tenth head coach in the UAlbany program's history, takes over a position that was recently upgraded to full-time status.

Marr served on Dick Edell's Maryland staff for six years as both assistant coach and offensive coordinator. Maryland made five NCAA Tournament appearances during that period, and was the Division I national runner-up in 1995, 1997 and 1998. The Terps shattered the school's single-season scoring record with 236 goals, when the program captured the '98 Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season and tournament titles. Maryland's attack has averaged 12.5 goals under Marr's direction from 1995-2000, while All-Americans Matt Hahn and Andrew Whipple became two of the most storied scorers in school history.

Marr, 32, began his coaching career as the University of Delaware's offensive coordinator, where he worked with the school's all-time scorer Anthony DiMarzo. From 1992-94, the Blue Hens captured three consecutive North Atlantic Conference championships, and earned a top-20 national ranking in each season. Marr was also an assistant on the United States team that won the 1999 World Cup.

A collegiate player at Johns Hopkins University, Marr was an attackman on the 1987 national championship squad and the '89 national runner-up team. The Blue Jays garnered four straight NCAA berths during his career. He received an undergraduate degree in social and behavioral sciences in 1991.

A native of Yorktown, N.Y., Marr was a high school All-American who twice led his teams to the state's semifinal round. He and his wife, Traci, a special education teacher, have two children, Kyle and Jordyn.

In its inaugural NCAA Division I campaign, Albany posted its tenth consecutive winning season with a 6-5 record, including victories over Providence and Boston College.

dave marr is now a head coach, probably making more money. you know coaching is his job and he does have to support a family. also, he has the ability to improve albany's team. they attract alot of good new york kids and are capable of having a good team.

First of all, for somebody to call it a dumb move tells you just how ignorant that person is. It's probably some high school kid who doesn't know much about anything yet so don't bother arguing with him. This is a great opportunity for Marr. Wish him the best up at Albany. In another coaching move, Dag24 has taken over the program at the University of Cavanaugh's, heyyyyy, NICE. His Flaming arrow, Dragon wisdom will take the Cav's far.
