The Colorado Mammoth have announced that head coach Bob Hamley and assistants Ed Comeau and Sean Ferris have been relieved of their coaching duties effective immediately.
“I have tremendous respect and admiration for Bob, Ed and Sean, and can’t say enough about what tremendous men they are,” said Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett. “Unfortunately, our team has not met the organization’s expectations. Change was necessary.”
Hamley has a career regular season record of 79-94 (.457) behind the bench with a 5-6 playoff record. He joined the Mammoth midway through the 2010 season, posting a 29-37 record with Colorado and 0-3 mark in the postseason, during his five-year tenure.
Assistant coaches Comeau and Ferris were in their fourth years with the team. Colorado ranks third in the West Division with a 4-7 record so far.
No replacements have been named at this time. An announcement regarding the coaching staff will be made in the near future.
Colorado hosts the Calgary Roughnecks on ‘Lacrosse Out Cancer’ Night at Pepsi Center live on TSN2 (Canada) and ESPN3 (U.S.) on Saturday at 9pm ET.
