Title: Associate Head Coach / Recruiting Coordinator
Tommy McMenemy joined the Michigan men's soccer staff on Jan. 30, 2012, and is entering his seventh season with the Wolverines after previously serving as an assistant at his alma mater, Columbia University, for six seasons. In April of 2018, he was promoted to his current position of associate head coach.
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.
McMenemy was elevated to the program's top assistant position in 2008 after joining the team as a volunteer assistant in 2006. At Columbia, McMenemy assisted in all phases of the program, including recruiting, organizing training sessions, devising tactical strategies, and developing a competition schedule.
The Southampton, United Kingdom native, also served as the head coach of Landsdowne Boys, an amateur men's team in the top division of the New York City's premier semi-professional league, the Cosmopolitan League from 2006-09 - leading Landsdowne to consecutive playoff berths as well as a State Cup Final.
As a player for the Lions, McMenemy earned NSCAA Adidas All-American status as a senior in 2003, and was a two-time unanimous 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. McMenemy also excelled in the classroom, earning Academic All-Ivy League honors in his final two years as a student-athlete.
Title: Assistant Coach
Jhojan Obando wrapped his fifth year as assistant coach, primarily working with the team's goalkeepers and assisting with recruiting. He also spent two years (2012-13) as volunteer assistant.
In 2018, Obando helped Henry Mashburn orchestrate a program-best defense, allowing only 18 goals in 21 matches. Three of the top six defenses in program history -- as judged by goals against average -- have come in the last four years under Obando's watch (2015, 2017, 2018). He's mentored 2012 All-Big Ten second-team honoree Adam Grinwis (now with Orlando City SC, MLS) and fellow program alum Evan Louro (now with New York Red Bulls, MLS). A native of Colombia, Obando possesses a USSF National C License, as well as an NSCAA Level III goalkeeping certificate.
Obando played in 44 career matches and made 42 starts as a goalkeeper at Providence under the guidance of Daley as a player, helping the Friars to a 24-14-4 record and recorded 13 clean sheets over that stretch. In 2010, Obando helped the Friars to the championship game of the Big East Tournament and was named to the All-Tournament Team.
Additionally, he was part of three Providence teams that made the NCAA Tournament. During the last two seasons, the Friars hosted an NCAA Tournament first-round match for the first times in school history, and advanced to the second round on each occasion. He was one of four goalkeepers invited to the 2012 adidas MLS Player Combine and most recently played for the Des Moines Menace in the Premier Development League.
