From Bill Wagner’s Column in the Annapolis capital:

Cottle made an immediate and noticeable contribution through insightful scouting, creative game-plans and personnel suggestions – helping the Bayhawks close the 2010 campaign with a three-game winning streak and capture the MLL championship.Not surprisingly, Kelly was eager to tap into Cottle’s expertise on a permanent basis. That is why Cottle has gone from consultant to man of charge.
At a press conference last night in Baltimore, Kelly announced that Cottle has been named president of the Chesapeake Bayhawks. The former Loyola College and University of Maryland head coach will oversee the entire organization and have a hand in everything from marketing to ticket sales to personnel decisions. “Dave is the smartest lacrosse person that I know and I am very pleased that he’s agreed to apply his vast knowledge and experience towards making the Chesapeake Bayhawks a better franchise,” Kelly said. “Dave understands the dynamics of the game at every level and has been an innovator throughout his career. I cannot think of a more qualified individual to lead this team into the future.”
