Assistant coach Tommy McMenemy joined the Michigan men’s soccer staff on Jan. 30, 2012. In addition to serving as the team recruiting coordinator, he handles all facets of coaching, organizing team training sessions, and leads the attacking unit tactics for the Wolverines.
Prior to his time in Ann Arbor, McMenemy spent six years at Columbia. He was elevated to the program’s top assistant in 2008 after joining the team as a volunteer assistant in 2006.
As a player for Columbia, McMenemy earned NSCAA Adidas All-America status as a senior in 2003, and was a two-time first-team All-Ivy League and first-team all-region selection (2002-03). He led the team in goals and assists in his junior and senior seasons, and was selected by his teammates as a team captain as a senior.

He has worked primarily with the team’s goalkeepers, mentoring 2012 All-Big Ten second-team honoree Adam Grinwis. In his new role as assistant coach, he continues to coach the goalkeepers, as well as contributing to match and training prep.
Obando spent his collegiate career as a goalkeeper at Providence, where he played in 44 matches under Chaka Daley. During his career, he went 24-14-4 in goal to go along with 14 clean sheets.
