Dan Teat And David Clevely Will Serve As Scouts
Oakville, ON – Toronto Rock owner, president and general manager Jamie Dawick has appointed Josh Sanderson as the team’s assistant general manager. Sanderson retired from the NLL in June and will now transition into his new role, working alongside Dawick.
“Josh and I will work very closely together on all lacrosse decisions,” said Dawick. “I am confident he will bring the same work ethic and desire to win that he had as a player, to his new position on the management side of things.”
Sanderson has already moved into a management role becoming the general manager of the Oakville Rock of Ontario’s Major Series Lacrosse. Under his thumb during the summer lacrosse season are several current members of the Toronto Rock including stars Rob Hellyer, Stephan Leblanc and Nick Rose.
Dawick has also hired Dan Teat and has retained David Clevely in the scouting department.
Teat was most recently an assistant coach with the Buffalo Bandits but left the team prior to the 2016 season. He is also the head coach of the Brampton Jr. A Excelsiors of the Ontario Lacrosse Association (OLA). Prior to coaching, the Brampton, Ontario native played for 14 seasons in the NLL with stops in Rochester, Albany, San Jose, Buffalo, Edmonton and Philadelphia. He won the Champion’s Cup with Rochester in his first NLL season in 1997 and ended his career in 2010.
Clevely will continue in his role as a scout with the Rock and is also the head coach of the Orangeville Jr. A Northmen of the OLA. Clevely won a Minto Cup Canadian Junior A championship as a player with the Northmen in 2008 and as an assistant coach in 2012.
Having two scouts that are head coaches in Canada’s premier junior lacrosse league will be a valuable asset when it comes to selecting talent at the annual NLL Draft. With these additions to the lacrosse operations staff, Dawick’s focus on hiring a new head coach will ramp up.
