JD LeMay has been named head men’s lacrosse coach at Brevard College, announced Director of Athletics Myranda Nash.

LeMay arrives at Brevard College after spending the last four seasons at Missouri Valley College, most recently as the head coach for both the men’s and women’s lacrosse programs at the NAIA institution located in Marshall, Missouri.

“We can’t wait to get started with Coach LeMay at the helm of the Brevard College Men’s Lacrosse program,” said Nash. “With his passion for the sport and his dedication to a well-rounded student-athlete experience, JD is an excellent choice to lead the Tornados.”

The hiring of LeMay arrives after a comprehensive national search for Brevard’s next head men’s lacrosse coach. LeMay will begin his duties immediately in preparation for the Spring 2022 competition schedule for the Tornado men's lacrosse program.

“I am both honored and very excited to be named the new head men’s lacrosse coach here at Brevard College,” said LeMay. “I would like to thank the Director of Athletics Myranda Nash and the search committee for providing me this opportunity. I am excited to bring my love and knowledge of the game to Brevard and look to create a positive and competitive culture both on and off the field.”

LeMay came to Missouri Valley in the fall of 2017, and spent two seasons as a graduate assistant coach for the men's lacrosse program before being elevated as the team’s assistant men’s lacrosse coach in June, 2019. Two months later, he added the duties of head women’s lacrosse coach, leading the Vikings for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons. In November of 2020, LeMay also assumed duties as the head men’s lacrosse coach at Missouri Valley.

As a college student-athlete, LeMay was a four-year member of the Mitchell College (Conn.) men’s lacrosse program. A three-year captain of the team, he was a three-time selection as Goalkeeper of the Year and a First-Team All-Conference selection in the NCAA Division III New England Collegiate Conference. In his goalkeeping career at Mitchell, he set a school-record with 773 career saves. Off the field he served as co-president of his school’s SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee) and attended the NCAA Student Athlete Leadership Forum.
