Scordato leaves UConn as the team’s winningest coach in the club era with a 36-18 record in four seasons. He produced an MCLA All-American in each of his four seasons as well as 26 All-Conference players, 2 Conference Offensive Players of the Year, 2 Defensive Players of the Year, 1 Rookie of the Year and was named the 2012 PCLL Coach of the Year.
On the field he led the program to a number of firsts; including the team’s first ever win over Boston College, first PCLL Championship, and first trip to the MCLA National Tournament. Off the field Scordato worked tirelessly to engage alumni and parents as well as bring speakers to campus that would inspire his players, most notably Captain Richard Phillips in 2014.
Succeeding Scordato will be Assistant Coach and Defensive Coordinator Marc Paolini. Paolini was a defensive standout at Daniel Hand High School located in Madison, CT as well as a team captain and three year starter. After high school Paolini went on to coach at his alma mater where he would be named Associate Head Coach. During Paolini's tenure at Daniel Hand the Tigers enjoyed several standout seasons including a 2006 team that went 20-2 and was ranked number two in the state.
"I hope to build upon the work of Coach Scordato and continue to make our team something the alumni and university can be proud of,” said Paolini. "What the team did this past season was historic. We want to continue that success and turn it into a standard that we work towards every season."
Both Paolini and the players are looking forward to the next chapter of UConn Men’s Lacrosse. “In the past few years Coach Paolini has proven how much he cares about UConn Lacrosse,” said Senior Captain Jack Tesoriero . “We look forward to building on our previous success and having an even better 2016 season.”
