Jay O’Neil, who coached the Washington & Jefferson varsity water polo teams to some of their greatest successes, resigned on Sunday. He led the women for four seasons, the men for three.
In 2015 the men’s team qualified for the CWPA Championships for the first time ever and tied a record for total wins.
O’Neil earned the 2012 CWPA Coach of the Year award after leading the Presidents’ women to 11 victories, a team record. In 2014, the Presidents’ women won a record-setting 17 victories and earned their fourth consecutive second place finish at the CWPA Division III Conference championship.
O’Neil is a 1997 graduate of Bucknell University where he played varsity water polo beginning in 1993. He previously coached at Bucknell and Salem International, and also served as an NCAA water polo official.
The college is seeking an immediate replacement and has published a job opening.
