BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland Assistant Coach Dan Chemottihas been named the first head coach at the University of Richmond, the Virginia school announced on Monday.
Chemotti finished his fifth season at Loyola in 2012 as the Greyhounds won an NCAA Division I-record tying 18 games and won the school's first NCAA Championship.
Due to the weather caused from Hurricane Sandy, Loyola Head Coach Charley Toomeywill be unavailable for comment. Following is a statement from Coach Toomey:
"We are very happy for Dan who is taking a step to become a head coach, one that he has wanted for a long time. I believe that the mark of a great coach is to leave a place better than you found it, and Dan is certainly doing that. We will be grateful for his contributions at Loyola and wish him the best at Richmond. We will begin a national search to fill the vacancy immediately."
