Augusta Does Not Renew
Contracts Of Drulia, Weber

AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Augusta Lynx announced Wednesday that the contracts of head coach and director of hockey operations Stan Drulia (pictured) and assistant coach Chuck Weber will not be renewed for 2005-06 and that a search for a new coach would begin immediately.

Augusta was 28-35-9 in 2004-05 and failed to advance to the Kelly Cup Playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.

Drulia was named the fifth head coach in team history in July 2003, hired by the team’s former ownership group after Drulia led Orlando to the WHA2 championship as a rookie coach in 2002-03.
