Bandits Head Coach Troy Cordingley has been named one of three finalists for Coach of the Year, the National Lacrosse League announced on Monday.
The 49-year-old helped guide Buffalo to a 13-5 overall record and top seed in the NLL Postseason. The Bandits advanced to the Champions Cup Final for the first time since 2008, but were swept by Saskatchewan in the Best of Three Series, as the Rush repeated as league champions.
New England Head Coach Glenn Clark and Saskatchewan's Derek Keenan are also finalist.
Cordingley won the Les Bartley Award in 2009 with Calgary and again in 2013 with Toronto.
