University of Massachusetts men’s lacrosse head coach Greg Cannella announced Doc Schneider has been promoted to assistant coach ahead of the 2015-16 school year. Schneider served as a volunteer assistant during 2014-15 after five years as an assistant coach from 2010-14 and four more as a starting goalkeeper for the Minutemen prior to that. Doc was an All-American while he was in uniform for the Minutemen.
Doc Schneider will fill the role of the offensive coordinator while being a mentor towards the goalies.
“I would like to thank Coach (Greg) Cannella for the opportunity to come back to UMass,” Schneider said. “This program has molded me into the person I am today and I could not be more grateful and excited to be back at a place I care so much about. I have no doubt that I have grown tremendously as a person from my experiences this past year and I believe this will lead me to become a better coach.”
Schneider worked with the offense while he served as a full-time volunteer in 2015 and simultaneously assisted in all aspects of on- and off-field preparations. Prior to the most recent season, Schneider was responsible for various components of the direction of the defense and goalie units during the 2010-14 campaigns.
