U-Va.'s Starsia wants to continue coaching
Virginia men's lacrosse coach Dom Starsia said Friday that he has no immediate plans to retire and wants to return as coach next season after his team completed a season that was overshadowed by the arrest of senior midfielder George Huguely in the killing of fellow U-Va. senior and women's lacrosse player Yeardley Love, The Post's Cavalier Journal blog reports.
"I'd be the first to tell you I've been doing this a long time," Starsia said in a phone interview. "I don't mean to be melodramatic, but I still love doing this. ... People have suggested I take a vacation, but for me a vacation would be to work only on groundballs or extra-man offense."
"Whatever choice I have in this matter, I love doing this more than ever."
Starsia's plans were first reported on InsideLacrosse.com Friday morning. Starsia earns $111,700 a year on a contract that runs through 2012. A message sent to U-Va. Athletic Director Craig Littlepage asking for reaction to Starsia's comments was not immediately returned Friday.
