The Colorado Mammoth named Walt Christianson as the club's new assistant coach and bid farewell to a pair of veteran players.

Christianson will join Colorado Mammoth head coach Jamie Batley on the bench after serving the last two years as assistant coach of the Calgary Roughnecks.

"Walt has more than 25 years experience in the game of lacrosse," said Steve Govett, Colorado Mammoth general manager. "He's been an outstanding player and coach and we welcome his tremendous insight."

Christianson was named the Western Lacrosse Coach Association Coach of the Year in 1990, 2001 and 2002. He has three Mann Cup championships to his credit, including two as a player. Christianson played for the Victoria Shamrocks for 12 years. Additionally, Christianson has won four Canadian Field Lacrosse championships.

Christianson teaches high school social studies, history and physical education and lives in Victoria, BC with his wife Julia and two sons.

In other news, Govett also announced that veteran forwards Al Truant and Fred Jenner have retired from NLL play. Truant tallied 14 goals and 14 assists last season for the Mammoth, while Jenner added five goals and five assists.

"Both of these men are deeply respected for the leadership and spirit they've provide in the locker room," said Govett. "Everyone associated with the Mammoth appreciates what Fred and Al have done for this team."
