By PLL | Jan 19, 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA. (January 19, 2021) - The Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) announced today that Coach Sean Quirk will be the Head Coach of Cannons LC for the impending 2021 PLL season.
Coach Quirk has been a part of the Boston Cannons organization since 2015, and most recently won the 2020 MLL Championship as the team’s Head Coach. He will continue in his role under a newly branded Cannons LC, which recently joined the PLL as the league’s 8th team by way of a merger with Major League Lacrosse.
“I am extremely excited and fortunate to be leading the Cannons Lacrosse Club,” says Coach Quirk. “With the rich tradition of the Cannons and fan base, we as a team look forward to building a championship caliber culture and team in the PLL. The merger of the MLL and PLL is very positive for our sport and the growth of professional lacrosse. This is an opportunity for the best players in the world to come together and display the highest level of lacrosse.”
As Coach Quirk aims for a PLL championship in 2021, he will do so with a new cast of players. As Cannons LC enters the PLL, Quirk will have the opportunity and challenge to form a team from the combined ranks of PLL and MLL talent. Details regarding the draft process will be announced in the coming weeks from the league.
PLL Head of Player Experience, Brian Silcott, speaks highly towards Quirk’s capabilities in this regard, stating that, “Sean is a builder. He built the program at Endicott, he built a championship team in Boston and I am sure he will build a great squad for the Cannons Lacrosse Club. I look forward to being on the same team again as we all build for the PLL's success.”
Echoing Silcott’s statements, PLL Head of Competition, Seth Tierney says, “I have followed and admired Sean Quirk’s success from afar. I am very impressed with everything he has said and asked as he prepares for this next challenge. He is exceptionally qualified and I think he will quickly instill the same culture and success that the Cannons name has come to signify.”
The PLL 2021 season will begin on June 4th with dates and locations to be announced.
