The Melbourne Mustangs Ice Hockey Club confirms recent speculation and media comment that they will not be appointing Steve Laforet as head coach for the 2013 AIHL Season.
The club would, firstly and most importantly, like to express its sincere thanks to Steve for his services to the club over the last few years, acknowledging his passion and dedication to the club during that time and we wish him well in whatever activities or direction he wishes to take.
A complete review of the club has been undertaken which has resulted in changes both on and off the ice. The recent AGM saw changes in the Committee of Management and planned adjustments to player and import rosters and the coaching staff are also reflective of the new approach and directions the club wishes to follow.
The club is currently in final negotiation with suitable candidates for both Head and Assistant Coach positions and hope to be able to make a formal announcement soon.
