“Today, I am resigning as the Head Coach and General Manager of the Atlas Lacrosse Club in order to devote more to my growing family. My wife and I recently found out that she is pregnant with our fourth child, and I am looking forward to continuing to try to be the best husband and father that I can be. Thank you to the Atlas players and coaches that have made this a great experience. This is a wonderful group of people that I’m excited to watch in the years to come. Thank you also to the Premier Lacrosse League and all of the people behind the scenes that helped me along the way. I am so grateful for my professional lacrosse journey which started 15 years ago. I’ll forever be a fan.”
