Former Notre Dame lacrosse captain Will DeRiso joins head coach Kevin Corrigan's staff this season. DeRiso, a standout for the Irish from 1994-97, will work specifically with the attack and midfield units.
A two-year starter at attack, the Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., native finished his career with 35 goals and 37 assists for 72 points, placing him 19th on the all-time career scoring list. In his senior season, DeRiso led Notre Dame in scoring with 43 points as he recorded single-season bests of 18 goals and 25 assists and was a first-team Great Western Lacrosse League selection. He was a member of Irish teams which won four consecutive GWLL championships and made four NCAA tournament appearances.
DeRiso was a member of the 1995 squad which upset fifth-seeded Duke in the first round of the NCAA tournament in Durham, N.C. The win was the first NCAA tournament victory in the program's history and marked the first and only victory by a team from the West region.
Born May 26, 1975, DeRiso received a degree in finance from the College of Business in 1997. Prior to coming to the University, and since his graduation, he worked as a financial analyst for Bank of America in Chicago.
DeRiso is single and resides in South Bend.
