Roughnecks Parting Ways With Pym

The Calgary Roughnecks announced today on their website that they would not be retaining head coach Dave Pym for the 2013 NLL season. The Roughnecks are coming off of a 12-4 season in which they won the Western Division but lost in the first round of the playoffs.

“Decisions like this are always difficult to make,” said Roughnecks General Manager Mike Board. “Over the past five seasons, Dave has made significant contributions to our club as a scout, assistant coach and a head coach. I thank Dave for his commitment and hard work and wish him every success in the future.”

The Roughnecks have not had a losing season since 2008, so the move is quite puzzling really. Last season was an excellent year for the Roughnecks until the postseason rolled around. Board will be looking at candidates to fill the position as the off-season goes along.
