The Saint John Sea Dogs’ off-season just got a lot more intriguing.
The team announced this evening that they and head coach Ross Yates have come to a “mutual decision to part ways.”
From the team’s website:
"Ross Yates is a man of integrity who was a true professional in all of his roles with our club," said Sea Dogs President Wayne Long. "We have very high expectations for next season and beyond. We just felt, as an organization, that we wanted to make a change."
"I met with Wayne at the end of the year and we decided, mutually, that it was best to part ways and go in different directions," Yates said. "I enjoyed my time in Saint John and wish the team success in the years to come."
Long said the search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
Yates began his time with the Sea Dogs in 2012-13 as an assistant coach. He became head coach of the team in October of 2013.
