Paul Day

General Manager and Head Coach
Paul Day

Paul Day is the Head Coach and General Manager of the Philadelphia Wings. Paul is a highly respected former professional lacrosse player, coach, and executive, a decorated 27-year police officer, and the first head coach/GM in our franchise’s history.

As a member of the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame, Day has appeared in the National Lacrosse League finals nine times, capturing five titles as a player, coach or general manager. He did this all while maintaining a 27-year career as a full-time sergeant for the Niagara Regional Police Service, specializing in street crime, intelligence and recruiting. He retired from the force in 2017 to focus his efforts on the Wings. After leading the Wings to a record of 8-6 in the shortened 2019-2020 season, a dramatic improvement over 2018-19 (4-14), Head Coach and General Manager Paul Day was named General Manager of the Year and the recipient of the prestigious Les Bartley Award, which recognizes the National Lacrosse League’s Head Coach of the Year.

A native of Peterborough, ON, Day used to ride his bike to the local library and watch 8 mm movies on a projector of old Philadelphia indoor lacrosse. Paul resides in Peterborough with his wife, Angela, and his children, Mac and Abby.
