Scott Hiller, Northwestern Women's Lacrosse, Former MLL General Manager
Scott Hiller, the husband of head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller and a standout lacrosse player and coach in his own right, returns for his ninth season as the Wildcats' volunteer assistant coach.
Hiller also serves as the co-president and general manager of the Washington Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse (MLL). Hiller served in the dual role of head coach/GM for the 2006 and 2007 seasons. Prior to coaching the Bayhawks Hiller served as the head coach of the Boston Cannons. He was a two-time selection as the league's Coach of the Year, and he led the Cannons to back-to-back American Division titles and four straight playoff appearances. He guided Boston to a 10-2 record in 2005, tying Baltimore for the best mark in league regular season history. During his four-year tenure with the Cannons, Hiller compiled a 32-18 regular season record. In his inaugural campaign during the 2002 season, Hiller led the team to a 7-7 record and he was named as the Coach of the Year. In 2003, the Cannons went 7-5 and secured their third consecutive postseason berth. The following season, Boston won a then team-record eight games and clinched the franchise's first American Division title.
Before joining the Cannons, Hiller spent eight seasons as assistant head coach for the Harvard men's lacrosse team. Prior to that, he had an outstanding playing career that included a U.S. World Team appearance in 1994.
Hiller graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1990. He is third on the career points list at UMass, where he was one of just two players to be named All-America all four years. He was captain of the Minutemen as a senior. Hiller graduated from Suffolk Law School in the spring of 2001.
