The Owen Sound, Ontario native has helped guide teams to three NLL championship games and won two himself as a player with the Buffalo Bandits in 1992 and 1993. After finishing playing in 1995, Hamley got his start behind the bench in 2001 as an assistant with the Albany Attack, appearing in his first championship game as a member of the coaching staff. He was named Head Coach and General Manager of the Columbus Landsharks in 2002 and was with the team during its move and transformation to the Arizona Sting. During his time in Arizona, Hamley was named NLL General Manager and Coach of the Year in 2005 while also taking the Sting to the 2005 League Championship Game. The squad would go back to the championship again in 2007.

After the Sting ceased operations, Hamley was briefly named as an assistant in Colorado before being hired as the General Manager and Heach Coach of the Edmonton Rush from 2008 to 2009. He was then brought back to Denver as Head Coach in 2010 and helped rebuild the Mammoth through the 2011 Draft with the selection of NLL Rookie of the Year Adam Jones.

Hamley is the former National Director of Box Lacrosse, Georgia and Texas Director for 3D Lacrosse. He built the 3d Georgia market from 2015 to 2020 which included sending many young athletes on to further their college lacrosse careers. Schools included Michigan, John’s Hopkins, Albany, and Air Force. 

“I am humbled and honored to join the Fort Worth NLL organization,” Hamley said. “I would like to thank Bill Cameron and Greg Bibb for their confidence in me to lead the lacrosse operations of the franchise. I am excited to get started on building a winning team on and off the floor.”
