Raiders Need A New Coach

The Prince Albert Raiders announced today that they have chosen not to renew the contract of Head Coach Steve Young.

Young has served in various capacities with the Raiders, after joining the team as an Assistant Coach in 2008-2009, and took over the Head Coaching duties in October 2011.

After a strong start to the season, the Raiders had an inconsistent second half followed by a first round playoff exit to the Red Deer Rebels in four games.

“We would like to thank Steve and his family for their commitment to the Raiders organization for the last 5 years,” said Raiders General Manager Bruno Campese. “Steve is a first class individual and a true professional. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

This is a headscratcher. Don't understand the move one bit.

Would former Raider defenceman Curtis Hunt be interested in this job?

Raider assistant coach Tim Leonard would be a great choice. Tim led the Midget AAA P.A. Mintos to two national championships during his tenure and made P.A. a real destination for midget-age talent.
