Mouradian Leaving Philadelphia Wings/Connecticut NLL Franchise
In Lacrosse We Trust has learned that Johnny Mouradian, the general manager of the Philadelphia Wings, will not return to the franchise when they move to Connecticut. The team will announce the move to Mohegan Sun Arena in a press conference tomorrow.
Mouradian has been the GM of the Wings since 2011 and was also the head coach of the team in 2012. He has remained their general manager even after they hired new coaches.
Mouradian has been a general manager in the league since 1992. He was with the Buffalo Bandits from 1992-1997 and then with Toronto and San Jose, now in Vancouver. He is also a member of the NLL Hall of Fame for his work as a general manager.
It’s still unclear if he was fired or if he is leaving on his own. He was recently named the head coach of Bryn Athyn and runs AILA, the American Indoor Lacrosse Association. The Wings missed the playoffs in 2014 and had not won a playoff game in his tenure.
Stay tuned for more details as they emerge. More decisions about the coaching staff are expected to come.
