W&L Completes Athletics Staff for the 2011-12 Year

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee Director of Athletics Jan Hathorn has announced the addition of Brian Cohen, Zach Glassman and Kevin Kiley as staff members within the athletic department.

Cohen joins the department as assistant men’s tennis coach, Glassman will serve as assistant men’s and women’s golf coach and Kiley will be the assistant men’s lacrosse coach.

Cohen comes to Washington and Lee from Duke University, where he served as a graduate assistant for the past two seasons.  During that time, Cohen helped lead the Blue Devils to a combined 42-19 record and two trips to the Round of 16 at the NCAA Division I Championships.  In 2010-11, Duke finished with a 22-10 overall record (9-2 ACC) and was ranked 12th in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division I poll.

Cohen has been a tennis instructor since 2003, serving stints at Bethesda Country Club, Darnestown Swim & Racquet Club, the Bullis Tennis Training Center and the Chevy Chase Recreation Association.  A 2007 graduate of Bucknell University with a bachelor of arts in environmental studies, Cohen was a four-year member of the Bison tennis team, earning ITA Scholar-Athlete and Patriot League Academic Honor Roll accolades.  He received a master of environmental management degree from Duke in May.

Glassman joins the Generals’ athletics staff after a successful collegiate golf career at the University of Dayton and the College of William & Mary.  He graduated from William & Mary in May with a bachelor of business administration degree in finance.  Glassman has been serving as the varsity golf coach at the University School in Cleveland, Ohio since June and he will join W&L in October.

During his rookie and sophomore seasons at Dayton, Glassman was a two-time Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week and a two-time Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, receiving the team’s Coach’s Award following his first season with the program.  He also competed in the 2009 U.S. Amateur at Pinehurst.  In his final two years at William & Mary, Glassman compiled a 75.77 scoring average, the eighth-best total in school history.  He finished 16th overall at the Colonial Athletic Association Championship as a senior.

Kiley assumes the post as assistant men’s lacrosse coach after serving as an assistant football and assistant lacrosse coach at Williams College since 2006.  On the lacrosse field, he served as the team’s defensive coordinator for four seasons and he was the offensive coordinator last season, while also assuming the duties of recruiting coordinator.  During his time with the program, the Ephs won their first-ever conference championship and achieved their first appearance in the NCAA Division III Tournament in 2008.  On the football field, he coached the defensive line and helped Williams to a 26-6 record over the last four seasons.

Kiley has also held assistant coaching stints at St. Andrews Presbyterian (2005-06) and St. Lawrence (2003-05).  He is a 2003 graduate of Colby College where he earned a bachelor of arts in classical civilizations and was a three-year starter for the lacrosse team.  He later earned a master of education in education administration from St. Lawrence in 2005.
