Prior to arriving at Binghamton Daley was an assistant for two seasons at Canisius after earning her degree in 2011.
“Allison is considered to be one of the best goalies to ever come out of Canada and a rising star in the coaching ranks,” Teeter said via the Canadian Lacrosse Association website. “She had an outstanding playing career at Canisius and I’m very familiar with Allison’s dedication and hard work having coached her for four years and having her as a member of my staff.”
