BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - After more than a decade at the helm, the Buffalo Bandits announced today Darris Kilgour will not return as the team's head coach next season.
Kilgour coached the team from 2003-2013, winning the league championship in 2008. However, the team is coming off back-to-back seasons with losing records.
"It's never easy making this type of decision," said Bandits director of lacrosse operations Scott Loffler in a press release. "However, we felt that a change at head coach is needed at this time to turn things around."
Kilgour posted a record of 103-73 with the Bandits. The team will begin searching for a new coach immediately.
