Drew Delaney

Head Coach at the University of Mary Washington

The University of Mary Washington athletic department has hired Andrew Drew Delaney as its next varsity head mens lacrosse coach, pending final human resources approval, according to Director of Athletics Ken Tyler. Delaney will replace Kurt Glaeser, who served as mens lacrosse coach for 27 years, and retired following the 2016 season.

We are very pleased to welcome Drew as our new head men's lacrosse coach, said Tyler on Monday. We had a large and accomplished group of candidates and Drew distinguished himself from the beginning. He has done a great job as head coach at Elizabethtown, and we were also impressed that he started the team at Arcadia and was an assistant at several traditionally strong lacrosse programs. As I got to know Drew and talked to others about him, it quickly became apparent that he has what it takes to create a positive culture for our lacrosse student-athletes both on and off the field. I anticipate much success for our program and I look forward to working with Drew. It's a great day to be an Eagle!

"It is a great honor to take over the University of Mary Washington men's lacrosse program, said Delaney. From the moment I stepped on campus and met all the people involved with UMW athletics, I knew this was the place I wanted to coach. I would like to thank Director of Athletics Ken Tyler and the search committee for giving me this wonderful opportunity. The future is bright and I am looking forward to helping Eagles lacrosse reach new heights!

Delaney brings a record of success to UMW, having served as head coach at Elizabethtown College at three seasons, from 2014-16. He has posted a 33-16 record during that time, including a 26-9 mark the past two years, going undefeated in league regular season play in each of the past two years. This spring, the Blue Jays finished with a 12-6 record and advanced to the Landmark Conference championship game, with two players gaining All-America honors.

In 2015, the Blue Jays won a school record 14 games (14-3) and finished the regular season unbeaten in conference play (7-0) for the first time. Delaney was named Landmark Coach of the Year by his peers, as the Blue Jays would put together a team record 13-game winning streak from March 7-April and earn the No. 1 seed in the Landmark Conference Championship.
