Layne, who lettered for the Greyhounds from 2007-2010 and was a starter for his final three seasons, earned All-ECAC Lacrosse First Team honors in 2010 and Second Team laurels as a junior the year prior.
Following his senior season in which he had 32 ground balls and 14 caused turnovers and helped the Greyhounds advance to the NCAA Championships for the third time in his career, Layne was named an USILA All-American. As a team, Loyola finished third nationally in scoring defense that season.
In his four years on the Greyhounds' defense, Layne picked up 107 ground balls and caused 46 turnovers.
Layne will assist Toomey and the Loyola coaching staff with many administrative duties including travel, academics and video coordination.
"We are delighted to have Steve, a former captain and All-American, back involved with the Loyola Lacrosse program on a daily basis," Toomey said. "We are excited to work with him and believe he will be an asset not only to our team but also to the coaching community."
He has worked as a coach with the HEADstrong Lacrosse Club in his native Philadelphia area, and the Malvern Prep alum was also a coach of the Philadelphia Youth Lacrosse All-Stars.
Layne graduated from Loyola in 2010 with a bachelor of arts in history and a minor in business marketing.
