Meet your coaching staff
Andrew McMinn is in his third season as head coach at Robert Morris University leading the Colonails to the Northeast Conference Championship Game in 2013.
McMinn had a banner campaign in his first year at the helm in 2012. As a result of his guidance, McMinn was selected as the 2012 Northeast Conference Coach of the Year in voting conducted by his peers. In his first season as a collegiate head coach, McMinn continued the rapid rise of the RMU's men's lacrosse program. He led Robert Morris to a program-record 11 wins in just 15 games, including posting a perfect 5-0 record in league play. As a result, the Colonials claimed the Northeast Conference regular-season crown, the first conference title of any kind for the men's lacrosse program.Read Full Bio
RMU has also been in the national conversation under McMinn. Robert Morris used a six-game winning streak to earn a national ranking for the second time in program history in 2012 as it entered the Nike/Inside Lacrosse Media Poll in April. The Colonials also posted multiple wins over nationally ranked teams in 2012, the first such occurrence in school history, including a 9-7 victory at Ohio State in March.
Prior to being named head coach, McMinn had previously been the associate head coach for the Colonials. He had served on the Robert Morris staff for six seasons, helping RMU develop from its earliest stages as a program to one that had secured three consecutive winning seasons and a national ranking along with its first postseason berth in the two years prior to his appointment as head coach.
Before joining the Colonials' coaching staff, McMinn was a standout goaltender for the Providence Friars of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC). In three seasons as the starting goaltender, he helped lead his team to two regular-season championships, a MAAC Tournament Championship and a berth in the 2004 NCAA Tournament. He was a three-time All-MAAC selection, a 2004 MAAC All-Tournament Team honoree, and he held the top two single-season goals against average marks in MAAC history at the time of his graduation.
During his career, he ranked among the top goaltenders in Division I in both save percentage and goals against average. He ranked fourth nationally in GAA in 2003, allowing just 6.91 tallies per game, and was seventh nationally in save percentage in 2005 with a .599 mark.
McMinn earned his Bachelor's degree in management with a minor in finance from Providence in 2005 and is working to complete his Master's degree in instructional leadership with a concentration in sport management from Robert Morris.
