A close defenseman for the Cavaliers’ 2019 national championship team, Logan Greco enters his second season on staff with the Virginia men’s lacrosse program in 2024. During the 2023 season, Greco served the Cavaliers’ volunteer assistant coach before being elevated to assistant coach on July 24, 2023. He currently assists with Virginia’s efforts in defensive strategy and training, scouting, recruiting, and video analysis.
In 2023, Greco and the Cavaliers reached Championship Weekend for the 25th time in program history after posting a 13-4 record with the nation’s No. 1 overall strength of schedule. Virginia also led the country in ground balls (39.65/gm) and the ACC in clearing percentage (.908). Greco mentored the likes of four defensive USILA All-Americans, including first-team selection Cade Saustad.
Prior to his return to UVA, Greco spent two seasons (2020-22) at the University of Richmond as the Spiders’ volunteer assistant coach, where he assisted with one of the most elite defenses in the nation. In 2021, Richmond led the country in caused turnovers, forcing 10.62 takeaways per game. Greco and the Spiders also led the Southern Conference in clearing percentage (.902) and scoring defense (9.62/game), good for third and eighth in the nation, respectively.
A native of Hauppauge, New York, Greco is a four-time UVA letterwinner. He was voted a USILA All-American Honorable Mention in 2019 after starting in all 20 of UVA’s games. That season, he collected 38 ground balls, including seven in the NCAA Tournament, and totaled 21 caused turnovers. One of Greco’s signature performances was during the 2019 ACC Tournament championship game, a 10-4 triumph over Notre Dame, when he tallied five ground balls and four caused turnovers to lead the Cavaliers to the program’s 18th ACC title.
Greco earned his undergraduate degree in 2019 as a double major in foreign affairs and history from UVA’s School of Arts & Sciences.
Greco and his wife, Gabrielle, reside in Charlottesville and have two dogs, Harley and Bruce.
