Allison Daley Named Assistant Coach at Canisius

The most decorated player in the program's history, Allison Daley will continue with Golden Griffin as an assistant coach, announced by head coach Scott Teeter on Wednesday.

"Allison is one of the best student-athletes to come through our program," Teeter said. "She represents all the qualities that Canisius College and the women's lacrosse program stand for. She will be a great asset to our young goaltending tandem as we look to continue to play at a championship level in the coming years."

Anchoring the Canisius defense from the goalkeeper position during the last four seasons, Daley set a school record with 662 career saves during her tenure and owns four of the top five single-season saves marks in the program's history. She also twice ranked inside the top 10 nationally in save percentage, placing seventh in 2011 and 10th in 2010.

A three-time selection to the All-MAAC team, Daley was named the 2010 MAAC Defensive Player of the Year. She also became the first player in the program's history to earn regional All-America accolades after being named to the IWLCA All-West/Midwest Second Team in 2010.

The Peterborough, Ontario native finished her career with Canisius in style, leading the Griffs to the program's first conference championship in 2011. Daley picked up MAAC Tournament MVP accolades after posting an 8.50 goals against average and .564 save percentage in a pair of victories against Siena and Fairfield.

Daley earned her bachelor's degree from Canisius in psychology and is now pursuing her master's in sport administration.
