Rock's Cordingley wins Coach of the Year

The National Lacrosse League announced Tuesday that Troy Cordingley of the Toronto Rock has been named the Coach of the Year.

Cordingley coached the Rock to a league-best 10-6 record in the regular season before being ousted in the first round of the playoffs by the Minnesota Swarm.

"This is a real honor," Cordingley said. "To be recognized with an award named after the great Les Bartley leaves me speechless. Les means so much to this game and to our league. I had the chance to play for him in Buffalo and he had a strong influence on me as a person and as a coach."

Cordingley took over the reigns of the Rock in the 2010 season and helped the team reach the championship game, losing to Washington 15-11. A year later the Rock returned and won the championship over the same Washington team 8-7.

Edmonton Rush head coach Derek Keenan finished second in the voting and Stealth head coach Chris Hall finished third.

The 2013 NLL season awards are determined by a vote of the league's Board of Governors, general managers and head coaches.
