The PLL has announced that Chrome LC head coach Dom Starsia will be moving on from his position as head coach with the club. Starsia will remain with the league in a leadership position on the PLL’s Lacrosse Advisory Board- which is headed by current Hofstra head coach Seth Tierney.
“The PLL and I have been talking about this transition for some time now. I am very excited about this new challenge and continuing to make a meaningful contribution to the future of the PLL.”, said Starsia in a press release.
Starsia was announced as one of the original six head coaches back in the spring of 2019 and led Chrome LC to a 2-8 record in the inaugural season of the PLL. Chrome LC missed the championship bracket and lost to Atlas LC in the first round and was knocked out of the double-elimination tournament by Archers LC in the second round.
A legend in the lacrosse world, Starsia will continue to share his knowledge and expertise as he helps the PLL as a member of their Lacrosse Advisory Board. “We want to sincerely thank Dom for his tireless dedication to both Chrome LC and the league throughout the inaugural season. We are delighted to have Dom join the PLL Lacrosse Advisory Board and look forward to relying on his vast knowledge of the sport.”, Seth Tierney said in a statement.
Starsia played at Brown from 1970-74. He became the head coach of his alma mater in 1982 after serving in multiple positions within the athletic department since graduating in 1974. He remained the head coach at Brown for ten years before leaving to take the head coaching job at Virginia in 1993. Starsia served as head coach for the Cavaliers until 2016 and led them to four national championships (1999, 2003, 2006, and 2011). He is a four-time F. Morris Touchstone “Coach of the Year” Award winner and was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2008.
