Meet the Coaches
Coach Tim McIntee is the former head coach of Division I Manhattan College, and he is considered one of the brightest lacrosse minds in the game today.
McIntee joined Manhattan after a stellar playing and coaching career on the collegiate, professional and international level. While at C.W. Post, McIntee was a three-time NCAA All-American and a four-year letter winner in lacrosse as a midfielder. McIntee went on to play with Team USA in the 1990 World Championships. He starred in the professional ranks as a member of the New York Saints of the Major Indoor Lacrosse League. In seven seasons with the Saints (1990-97), McIntee recorded 97 points (46 goals, 51 assists), which ranks him among the all-time leading scorers in franchise history.
In the summer of 2002, McIntee was selected as a coach for Team Ireland at the 2002 World Games. He was the offensive coordinator and man-up coach. The Irish team went 6-2 with key victories over Korea, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Italy.
Coach Darryl Delia is the Head Coach at Albertus Magnus College and spent the last three seasons as an Assistant Coach at Sacred Heart University, a Division I member of the Northeast Conference that competed in the Colonial Athletic Association – one of the most competitive lacrosse conferences in the country – for two of Delia’s three seasons on the sidelines. At Sacred Heart, Delia served as both offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator for the Pioneers.
Prior to Sacred Heart, Delia helped patrol the sidelines at Division I Fairfield University from 2004-2008 as the Stags competed in the Great Western Lacrosse League with conference members such as Notre Dame and Ohio State. While working at Fairfield, Delia served as offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator, and also managed the team’s equipment, fundraising efforts, and all elements of travel and video exchange. With Delia running the offense, Fairfield won the GWLL Championship during the 2005 season, and competed in the NCAA Tournament.
Delia also spent five seasons at Yale University where he served as the top Assistant Coach at the Ivy League power, and then Interim Head Coach during the 2003 season. During the 2003 campaign, Delia led the Bulldogs to a 9-5 overall record competing in arguably the nation’s toughest lacrosse conference. Twice during Delia’s tenure at Yale, the Bulldogs’ offense was ranked in the top-10, nationally. While at Yale, Delia was one of only a handful of coaches nationally to serve as a selector for the United States World Team in 2000.
Coach Mariano enters his 15th season as the head men's lacrosse coach at Sacred Heart University.
Coach Mariano has helped the Pioneers evolve into a solid and competitive program as they enter their fifth season as members of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), arguably one of the top-lacrosse conferences in the country. Since the transition to Division I began in the 1999 season, the goal of the Pioneers has been to compete for a league championship and an NCAA berth each season. Playing a hard-nosed and enthusiastic style, the Pioneers reflect the work ethic and competitive traits of Mariano.
With the move up to the Colonial Athletic Association in 2002, the Pioneers have fielded an up-tempo offense, a tough, aggressive midfield and closed defense. After a solid 7-9 mark in their inaugural Division I season in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in 2000, in which a young team lost four conference games by a total of five goals, the Pioneers came back and posted an 8-8 overall mark (7-2, MAAC) in 2001. This earned the Pioneers their first-ever MAAC Lacrosse League tournament appearance.
Prior to coming to Sacred Heart, Mariano was the head coach at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. A native of Ossining, NY, he is a graduate of Ossining High School. In 1994 he graduated from Nazareth College of Rochester with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Accounting. As a sophomore, he helped lead the Golden Flyers to the 1992 Division III national championship.
During his junior and senior seasons, Nazareth lost in the national semi-finals. As a senior, Mariano was one of the top long-stick midfielders in the country and was named an alternate for the Division III North / South All-Star game. During the summer, Mariano is the Director of the Nike Lacrosse Camp at Sacred Heart University, and also serves on numerous coaching staffs at lacrosse summer camps throughout the Northeast.
Mariano earned his Master's of Art in Teaching, specializing in Elementary Education, at Sacred Heart in 2000. He and his wife, Alison and daughters Jordyn and Ryanne, reside in Stratford, CT.
