ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan men's lacrosse team has announced the addition of former Skyline High School head coach and Defiance College assistant coach Nick Zoroya to the staff in the position of video coordinator. A 2011 University of Michigan graduate, Zoroya has spent five of the past six years involved in lacrosse in the state of Michigan.
"We're doing some really cutting edge things with our film analysis and how we get information to our athletes," said Michigan head coach John Paul. "Nick is going to help take our program to the next level in that area."
Zoroya joins the program after serving during the fall as an assistant coach at Defiance College, a position he accepted following a two seasons as the director of lacrosse operations at the University of Detroit Mercy.
The founder of the Ann Arbor-based Delta Lacrosse Club, he began his coaching career in 2009 as the first-ever head coach at Skyline High School in Ann Arbor before moving in 2011 to Novi High School, where he coached for one season.
Zoroya began his collegiate playing career at Oberlin College, where he lettered in both lacrosse and football as a freshman before transferring to U-M in 2008.
"It feels great to be back at the University of Michigan," said Zoroya. "I would like to thank Coach Paul for the opportunity to be a part of the program, and I look forward to the many future successes of Michigan lacrosse."
The Wolverines will open the 2014 season with an exhibition contest against Marquette on Saturday, Feb. 1, at 1 p.m. in Oosterbaan Field House.
