Jon Cohen enters his 13th season with the Outlaws in 2019 and first as general manager.
Cohen, the Outlaws' longest tenured coach, has served as Director of Player Personnel (2018), Assistant GM/Coach (2013-18), Head Equipment Manager (2008-12) and Visiting Team Liaison (2007) for Denver.
Denver boasts a 105-53 (.665 pct.) record in Cohen’s time with the club, which represents the best record in the league in that span. In his six years as Assistant General Manager, Denver amassed a 55-29 (.655 pct.) record and won the major League Lacrosse Championship in 2014, '16 and '18.
As Director of Player Personnel and Assistant GM, Cohen was pivotal in acquiring a number of the league’s premier rookies in 2017 and '18, including Zach Currier, Romar Dennis, Finn Sullivan, Eli Gobrecht, Chris Cloutier and Matt Gilray.
In 2016, Cohen helped lead the Outlaws to its tenth MLL Playoff appearance, sixth MLL Championship appearance, and second MLL Title in franchise history.
He helped lead the 2013 Outlaws to becoming the first team in MLL history to finish a season undefeated. Denver set 21 team records and 10 MLL records in 2013 on its way to become the first team in MLL history and just the fourth team in North American major pro sports to finish a regular season undefeated.
The longest tenured member of the team’s player/coach roster, Cohen has worked with four head coaches in his 12 seasons with the Outlaws. Denver has made the playoffs in 11 of the 12 seasons that Cohen has been on the club’s staff.
