Darris Kilgour's Hall of Fame resume grew after he led Buffalo to their first NLL Championship since the 1996 season. The Championship was the first for Kilgour as head coach and general manager and was the fourth for the Buffalo organization.

After being named the Buffalo Bandits’ sixth head coach on July 18, 2002, Kilgour transformed an 8-8 team in 2002 into the physically punishing team that journeyed to the Champions Cup Finals in 2004. That same year, he was selected to coach the Eastern Division in the 2004 NLL All-Star game. Kilgour's 12-win season in 2003 is the most in franchise history, and the feat earned him 2003 NLL Coach of the Year honors. In five years as a head coach in the NLL, no Kilgour-led team has ever missed the playoffs. A 10-6 regular season clinched the East Division title for the Kilgour-led Bandits in 2008, three more playoff wins including a 14-13 victory over Portland to win their first Championship in 12 years.

In six years as head coach of the Bandits, Kilgour has led the team to a 52-28 regular season record, and a 6-5 playoff record.  He also enters his fourth season as the team’s general manager.
 
Kilgour began his coaching career with the Washington Power from 2000-2002, compiling an 18-12 record and taking the Power into the semi-finals both seasons.
 
A three-time MILL/NLL All-Pro as a player, Kilgour was the first ever draft choice of the Bandits in 1992. The Niagara Falls, NY native was a two-time All-American lacrosse player at Niagara Wheatfield High School.
 
Kilgour was a major contributor in each of Buffalo's three Major Indoor Lacrosse League Championships. He currently ranks among the Bandits’ all-time leaders in every major statistical category: second in penalty minutes (257), third in goals (128), third in faceoffs won (255), fourth in assists (127), fifth in points (255), seventh in games played (62), and ninth in loose balls (368).
