The Barrie Blizzard have announced the addition of Garrett Billings to the team’s coaching staff. The Toronto Rock standout has committed to act as the team’s offensive coordinator until he is able to reach a new deal with the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League (NLL).
“Garrett’s extensive experience is going to be very beneficial for this organization, and our players.” said Rob Blasdell, Barrie Blizzard General Manager. “We are thrilled to have Garrett on board and I look forward to working with him in our efforts to bring a Creator’s Cup to Barrie.”
As a player, Billings is arguably one of the best set up men in the NLL, and an incredibly consistent goal scorer, scoring atleast 30 goals in each of his five seasons in the league. Billings recently made NLL history in 2014 by posting his third straight 100+ point season.
Billings echoed Blasdell’s enthusiasm saying, “I’ve been very impressed by this organization, its coaching staff, and its players. I’m looking forward to working with the team and helping them achieve their goal of winning a championship.”
