The Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) have added three-time World Champion and former Wings Captain Dave Stilley as Assistant General Manager.
Stilley will support General Manager Johnny Mouradian with corporate sponsorships, player contracts and league communication as the Wings prepare to open their 25th Anniversary season against the Boston Blazers at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, January 8 at 7 p.m.
Stilley is an 11-year veteran of the NLL and led the Wings to championships in 1998 and 2001. Ownership looks for Stilley to bring the same intensity and drive to win to his new position as Assistant General Manager.
“Dave brings leadership, a winning tradition, and another dynamic level of energy to our organization,” said Wings Owner Mike French. “His physical presence was an important component to the Wings winning championship teams. He is a perfect fit for our revitalized winning strategy this season.”
“I am absolutely thrilled and honored to be back in Philadelphia where I started my NLL career,” said Stilley about his new position with the Wings. “I am very excited to re-connect with the fans, learn from some of the finest professionals in the business and work with the world class coaching staff that is John Tucker, Blaine Harrison and former teammate, Tom Slate.”
