Scott Marr begins his 13th season as UAlbany's head coach. He has a 100-93 career record. The Great Danes have won four America East Conference championships and made four NCAA Tournament appearances during his tenure. Marr has coached eight All-Americans and 60 all-conference players.
Last season, the Great Danes reached their second straight - ninth overall - America East Conference Championship game. Senior attackman Joe Resetarits was named the 2012 America East Conference Men's Lacrosse Player of the Year, and was joined on the all-conference first team by senior long stick defender Travis Lyons. Sophomore attackman Miles Thompson, sophomore midfielder Cody Futia and senior faceoff specialist Keith Olson were all-conference second team honorees. Freshmen Mike Miller, Will Stenberg and Lyle Thompson all garnered all-rookie team accolades, while senior Daley Baker earned a spot on the all-academic squad.
The Great Danes reached the America East Conference tournament championship final for the eighth time in nine years in the 2010 season. Dave Brock was selected in both the Major League Lacrosse and National Lacrosse League drafts.
In 2008, Marr led UAlbany to its seventh consecutive appearance in the America East championship game. The Great Danes rebounded from four one-goal losses at the start of the season. Jordan Levine and Brett Queener were each selected in the MLL Collegiate Draft. Steve and Mike Ammann were taken in the NLL Entry Draft.
In 2007, Marr led the Great Danes to their fourth America East Conference championship in five years and the program's first-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament's quarterfinal round. He was named the USILA Division I National Coach of the Year.
UAlbany registered its first NCAA victory as a Division I program in a 19-10 triumph over Loyola before losing a memorable overtime decision to top-ranked Cornell in the quarterfinals. The Great Danes posted a school-record 15-3 mark, defeated seven top-20 teams, and were ranked No. 2 nationally for six consecutive weeks during the regular season. Frank Resetarits, a Tewaaraton Trophy finalist, was among four players voted to the USILA All-America squad.
In 2006, Marr's squad reached the America East Conference championship final for the fifth straight year. His team ranked third nationally in scoring offense at 11.73 goals per game. Marr led the Great Danes to their third consecutive America East Conference Tournament championship and NCAA berth in 2005. UAlbany was sixth among the nation's scoring leaders (11.63 goals/game). The Great Danes defeated three top-20 squads during the regular season.
Coach Marr guided the UAlbany program to the school's first-ever NCAA Division I Tournament appearance in 2003. The Great Danes tied a school record for single-season victories at the time with a 10-6 overall won-loss mark. The 2004 squad also posted 10 victories and finished seventh in the nation in team scoring before losing to eventual national champion Syracuse in the NCAA's first round.
Marr produced significant results in his second year at the helm. UAlbany captured the 2002 America East regular-season title with a 9-7 record. Albany's six-win improvement from the previous season was the best one-year turnaround in the program's history. He was recognized for his efforts by being voted America East coach of the year.
Marr served as one of three assistants for the 2006 U.S. Men's Lacrosse Team that won the silver medal. Syracuse's John Desko was the U.S. team's head coach. The 2006 International Lacrosse Federation World Championship was held in London, Ontario from July 13-22.
As an assistant on Dick Edell's Maryland staff for six years, Marr served as both assistant coach and offensive coordinator. Maryland made five NCAA Tournament appearances during that period and was the Division I national runner-up in 1995, 1997 and 1998. The Terrapins shattered the school's single-season scoring record with 236 goals when the program captured the ‘98 Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season and tournament titles. Maryland's attack averaged 12.5 goals under Marr's direction from 1995-2000. All-Americans Matt Hahn and Andrew Whipple became two of the most storied scorers in school history.
Marr began his coaching career as the University of Delaware's offensive coordinator, where he worked with the school's all-time leading scorer Anthony DiMarzo. From 1992-94, the Blue Hens captured three consecutive North Atlantic Conference championships and earned a top-20 national ranking in each season. Marr was also an assistant on the United States team that won the 1999 World Cup.
As a collegiate player at Johns Hopkins University, Marr was an attackman on the 1987 national championship squad and the ‘89 national runner-up team. The Blue Jays garnered four straight NCAA berths during his career. He received a B.S. in social and behavorial sciences in 1991.
