Pat Coyle enters his second season on the Mammoth bench after being named interim coach with Chris Gill and Dan Stroup on March 5, 2014. Coyle, and his fellow coaches, were signed to two-year contracts on July 24, 2014 after leading the Mammoth to a 4-3 mark and a postseason berth after taking over midway through the 2014 campaign.
In September, Coyle became the first defenseman in league history to win induction into the NLL Hall of Fame. A Mammoth player from 2005-2008, he was named to the Mammoth’s All-Decade Team in 2012. Coyle was the 2002 NLL Defensive Player of the Year in the inaugural season of the award.
A five-time champion in a 12-year playing career, Coyle hoisted the Champion’s Cup four times with the Toronto Rock (1999, 2000, 2002, 2003) and once with the Mammoth (2006).
