Denver’s First Family


TrevorTierneyThe University of Denver might have scored the biggest coaching hire of the off-season when they signed Bill Tierney as their new head coach earlier this summer, but little did they know they were subscribing to the family package.  This Friday the Pioneers added Bill’s son, celebrated goalier Trevor, to their staff.

It was a natural move for the western most Division 1 program.  Trevor has been living in the Denver area for a number of years now and has been a staple of the Denver Outlaw program for the last few season as both a goal-tender and a coach.  No word on what Trevor’s duties will be with the Pioneers, but given that he has been a defensive coordinator in the pro-league, I imagine he’ll have a big say in how the long-poles operate.  Just a hunch.

While we’re all aware of his accomplishments at Princeton, Inside Lacrosse pointed something out that might have slipped under most people’s radar.  Trevor is the only goalie in the history of the game to win an NCAA National Championship, and ILF World Championship, and an MLL Championship.  That’s freaking impressive.
