The orchestrator of the first two national championships in the history of the Stonehill College Athletic Department, Daly has been a part of women’s lacrosse at the coaching level for over three decades, beginning with his first – and most impressive – head coaching stint at Stonehill from 1998-2007.

With the Skyhawks (and formerly Chieftains), Daly also served as Assistant A.D. alongside his coaching duties. In 10 seasons, he guided Stonehill from its roots as a club program and eventually saw his efforts culminate in a pair of Division II NCAA National Championships (2003, 05). His remarkable 2005 championship team enjoyed an undefeated season, finishing the year 21-0.

Daly’s era in Easton, Mass., could only be quantified as a dynasty for the women’s lacrosse program, which claimed Northeast-10 Conference Tournament crowns from 2000 through 2007. He owned an 83-2 record in conference play in those 10 seasons and was three times named the IWLCA Division II National Coach of the Year (1999, 2003, 2005).

After Stonehill, Daly elevated his coaching talents to the Division I ranks when he joined his alma mater, the University of New Hampshire, in 2007. There, Daly needed just two seasons, first as an Assistant Coach, then Associate Head Coach, and eventually as Head Coach from 2009-12, to transform the Wildcats into a perennial power in America East.

During his four years in Durham, N.H., the program enjoyed resurgence to prominence, culminating with an at-large selection to the 2008 NCAA Championship and a No. 13 national ranking that year.

Coaching at Division I ranks also enabled Daly to hone his recruiting, player development and academic advising skills. The former Wildcat guided a program that, in the classroom, saw his student-athletes consistently meet and exceed team GPA goals each season. His staff was also able to compile two of the most talented recruiting classes in UNH program history in 2011 and 2012.

Most recently, Daly spent the 2013 season as an Assistant Women’s Lacrosse Coach at nearby Saint Anselm College, returning to the NE-10 to help guide the Hawks. Last spring, he oversaw practices, team scouting and game preparation, team defense, and player skill instruction. Once again, Daly enjoyed NE-10 success in Manchester, N.H., helping lead the team to an NE-10 tournament bid and the most wins in program history (10) alongside head coach Holly Drown.

A native of Boston, Daly received his M.S. in Sport Management in 1994 and MBA in 1996 from Northeastern University after earning his Bachelor’s Degree from UNH in Communication. He currently resides in Portsmouth, N.H.
