Lilley ready for second shot with Rhinos

[USL PRO] Bob Lilley, one of the most successful coaches in USL history, is back for a second stint with the Rochester Rhinos whom he left after the 2011 season.

The Rhinos finished in 11th place in USL PRO in 2013 and missed out on the playoffs for the first time in their 18 seasons of play. After starting 1-6-1, the Rhinos replaced Jesse Myers with team president Pat Ercoli.

Lilley has coached Hershey Wildcats, Montreal Impact, Vancouver Whitecaps and Rhinos in a career dating back to 1997. He spent the last two seasons working with PA Classics youth club, a top Development Academy program.

“I missed the environment, the USL and certainly Rochester," he told the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle. "I had a great time and great experience there. This is an opportunity to step back into that environment, and I’m looking forward to the challenge. I’m excited. I’m recharged and refocused and want another opportunity to build on what we did.”

Rochester won A-League titles in 1998, 2000 and 2001 and the U.S. Open Cup in 1999.
