from press release

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. — Dominican University of California Director of Athletics Brandon Leimbach announced Monday, May 5 that Ned Webster has resigned as head men's lacrosse coach to pursue other coaching opportunities.

Webster was hired in 2005 as the second head coach in the program's history. He concluded his ninth season as the Penguins' head coach with a 9-3 win-loss record in 2014, including the program's second WILA championship, and a 35-40 overall win-loss record. Dominican was 33-23 in NCAA Division II play during his tenure.

"I want to thank Coach Webster for his dedication to Dominican lacrosse over the past nine years," said Leimbach. "I appreciate those efforts and wish Ned and his family my best."

Matt Blamey, who served as the defensive coordinator this past season, has been named interim head coach, effective immediately. Before arriving at Dominican, Blamey was an assistant coach at Sonoma State from 2011-2013 and founder and head coach of the first-ever NJCAA men's lacrosse program at Northern Virginia Community College. In college, Blamey was a defender and long-stick midfielder for the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Dominican sponsors 12 intercollegiate sports and is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II. The Penguins have won the Pacific West Conference Academic Achievement Award for four consecutive years, having most recently posted a 3.34 GPA in 2012-13.
