A new report has taken us on a complete 180 from where we were earlier this week.

Earlier this week, Inside Lacrosse reported that legendary Virginia men's lacrosse head coach Dom Starsia will not be returning to coach the 2017 season. However, a new report came out today from the highly-respect Ty Xanders stating that Virginia has offered Starsia a three-year deal.

Xanders, a former Inside Lacrosse writer, is the founder and editor of, which covers high school lacrosse and recruiting.

Starsia's contract was set to expire in January 2017 -- before the start of the next season. IL's original report was said to have been confirmed by multiple sources, including an email sent around the Virginia Lacrosse Alumni Network, stating that his "contract will not be renewed and he will not coach the team next year."

If Xanders is correct, and if Starsia accepts, Starsia will be coaching his 25th season as head coach at Virginia next year. He has a 274-103 record with Virginia, which includes four national championships, 13 final four appearances, and 21 NCAA Tournament appearances.
