Coaching change in Alberni Valley...UPDATED WITH DETAILS
The Bulldogs have parted ways with Head Coach and Assistant Director of Hockey Ops Paul Esdale, as of some time today. No further details are available at this time, but I have been told that a Press Release is forthcoming so I will post more details when they come available.
Apologies that I don't have more at the moment and didn't have something sooner. This couldn't have happened on a worse day for me as I'm down with a bad case of the Flu or Food Poisoning and I also told the team I wouldn't confirm any rumours until this afternoon as they requested that they be able to tell the players first.

For Immediate Release
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs announce Paul Esdale has been removed from his position as Head Coach and Assistant Director of Hockey Operations.
Bulldogs President Andy Oakes stated, “We would like to thank Paul for his efforts towards the club over the past two and a half years.” “The club has not achieved the success we believe this group is capable of at this point and a change is required in order to give our group a chance to be a playoff hockey club.”
The club will announce the New Head Coach on Wednesday December 7th, 2011
