Coach Bill Daye is leaving the Boston Cannons after six seasons, including the team's first-ever MLL championship this year.

Daye played goalie during the Cannons' inaugural 2001 season, and returned to the team as an assistant coach in 2005. He's been head coach since 2006.

"This was obviously a very difficult decision, however it was one that was made based on my desire to spend more time with my family, especially with our girls, Adison and Ollie, growing up so quickly," Daye said in a statement.

Daye led Boston to its first MLL title this season, and was named the league's Coach of the Year. He'll stay with the team as an adviser until a new coach is tapped.

Meanwhile, the Boston Blazers indoor team is looking for a new home after negotiations to stay in the TD Garden broke down. More on that in Thursday's Metro.
