Experience Will Bring Great Value To Chesapeake
ANNAPOLIS, MD – The Chesapeake Bayhawks announced today that former Denver Outlaws general manager Brian Reese will be transitioning into the role of general manager for the Bayhawks beginning in October of 2011.
Reese had been with the Outlaws since their year of inception into Major League Lacrosse (MLL) in 2006. He also performed a four year stint as head coach through 2010, boasting a record of 30-12. During his six year career with Denver, the Outlaws tallied a winning record and clinched a playoff berth each year.
“We are excited to have someone like Brian Reese on board to help the Bayhawks going into the 2012 season,” head coach and owner Brendan Kelly said. “His experience with a successful franchise like the Outlaws will bring unparalleled value to the Bayhawks.”
Before starting his career with the Outlaws, Reese was an MLL defenseman for the Bayhawks from 2001-2004, where he was a member of the 2002 championship team. Reese currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland with his wife and three children. He serves as a volunteer coach for the University of Maryland women’s lacrosse team and he is excited about starting with the Bayhawks this fall in his home town.
“I am excited to join the Bayhawks and contribute to a great organization,” Reese stated. “As an original Bayhawk player, and with my family in Maryland, this is home for me. This franchise is doing some great things on and off the field and I hope to continue that momentum, contribute in the community, and help the team win more Championships. I want to thank Brendan Kelly and Dave Cottle for the opportunity and I look forward to working with them, the players, coaches and the front office staff.”
