UMass Men's Lacrosse Player Bio: Doc Schneider

University of Massachusetts men's lacrosse head coach Greg Cannella announced Doc Schneider has returned to the staff as a volunteer assistant coach on Thursday, Dec. 4. Schneider previously helped Cannella during the 2010-14 seasons after he completed a stellar playing career with the Minutemen from 2006-09.

Schneider will work with the goalies and will assist in on- and off-field game preparations. As an assistant coach from 2010-14, Schneider was responsible for various components of the direction of the defense and goalie units.

Through Schneider's tutelage, three-year starter Tim McCormack developed into a USILA All-American and First Team All-New England selection at goalie in 2012. Schneider simultaneously coached the Minutemen defense, including the man-down unit, which featured all-America selections Jake Smith (2012-13), Tom Celentani (2012) and Diogo Godoi (2010).

Schneider returns to the coaching ranks after he pursued opportunities in the private sector following the completion of the 2014 collegiate lacrosse season.

As a student-athlete at Massachusetts, Schneider was a four-year starter from 2006-09, racking up the second-most saves in program history (753). Schneider owned a 7.98 goals-against average and .611 save percentage for his career while earning 34 victories in net. A 2009 USILA All-American and Tewaaraton Award finalist, the Massapequa, New York, native, also received all-New England honors on four occasions, competed in the USILA North-South All Star Game and was named the ECAC Goalie of the Year as a senior.

Prior to joining the coaching ranks, Schneider was the highest drafted goalie in Major League Lacrosse during 2009, eventually helping the Toronto Nationals win the MLL Championship alongside former Minuteman Jeff Zywicki. In the championship game, Schneider backstopped the Nationals with 12 saves after picking up the semifinal victory over Long Island.
