Quinn Honored
March 9, 2011

Middlebury College Director of Athletics Erin Quinn
was recently honored by the Institute for
International Sport (www.internationalsport.com).
The group recently celebrated its 20th Anniversary
of National Sportsmanship Day, one of its signature
initiatives. National Sportsmanship Day was
launched in 1991 by Institute Founder and
Executive Director Dan Doyle with the objective of
engaging athletes and other community members
in thoughtful discussions about the concepts of sportsmanship and fair play. On
March 1, thousands of schools, universities, teams, conferences and
associations throughout the United States participated in this worthy initiative.
In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of National Sportsmanship Day, a team of
Institute staff members and outside consultants has worked to select 20 living
Americans, 20 deceased Americans and 20 American organizations/initiatives
that have made significant contributions to the practice of fair play and have
enhanced the national consciousness regarding the central importance of
sportsmanship. States Doyle, “We wanted to recognize individuals as well as
organizations and initiatives that have brought fair play to the forefront through
their actions and example. Notables joining Quinn on the list were Jack
Nicklaus, Cal Ripkin, Jr., Dee Row, John Wooden and “Bear” Bryant.
The release stated that “As a coach, Quinn’s lacrosse teams won three national
championships and two James “Ace” Adams awards for sportsmanship. As an
athletic director, he has fostered in the Middlebury College Athletic Department
a culture of sportsmanship that serves as a national model.” He is now in
his fifth year as the school's Director of Athletics, taking over the job in July of
'06.
Throughout his time at Middlebury, Quinn has been involved in many other
endeavors off the field. He is nationally respected as an advocate for the growth
of lacrosse and has been a sought-after clinician and speaker for several years.
He was the winner of an outstanding contribution award in 2004, given by the
Vermont chapter of the U.S. Lacrosse organization. Quinn has been involved
with several local charities, volunteering time as well as fundraising.
Quinn is a 1986 graduate of Middlebury College, where he was a member of
the football team, captaining the squad his senior year. He began his coaching
career at his alma mater, working with the lacrosse and football programs in the
year following his graduation. After a year at Middlebury, Quinn moved on to
Tufts University, where he was an assistant coach in lacrosse and football while
earning his master’s degree in teaching. After two years at Tufts, Quinn landed
his first head coaching job, heading up the men’s lacrosse program at Lake
Forest College in Illinois. Following a year at Lake Forest, Quinn returned to
Middlebury in 1990 as an assistant coach in lacrosse and football. The following
year he was named head coach of the men’s lacrosse team, while continuing
his football duties.
Quinn directed the men's lacrosse program at Middlebury for 15 seasons, with
his final season taking place in the spring of '06 where he amassed an
amazing 202-38 career record. His .842 winning percentage is second among
his peers in the history of Division III lacrosse.
