Former Maryland men's lacrosse coach Dave Cottle will be adding to his duties with the Chesapeake Bayhawks of the Major Lacrosse League.

Cottle, president of the team, will join owner and head coach Brendan Kelly on the field as an assistant coach during the 2011 season, which begins May 14 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis against the Rochester Rattlers.

"I have a great respect for Dave and his abilities as a leader in the office and on the field," Kelly said in a release. "His expertise in coaching will help us to defend our title and take home the Steinfeld Trophy again this summer."

Cottle, named president in January, is looking forward to helping the Bayhawks repeat as MLL champions.

"My job is to help with whatever Brendan needs within this organization," Cottle said in a statement. ".... I am excited to get back on the field this summer and help to coach an incredible group of lacrosse players."

Cottle, a Salisbury University graduate, spent 19 years coaching at Loyola College, leading the Greyhounds to 181 wins and 14 consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament. Cottle was named head coach at Maryland in 2001 and led the Terps to 99 wins and wight consecutive NCAA playoff appearances before resigning after last season.
