FRESNO, Calif. – The Fresno Falcons announced that the contract of head coach Greg Spenrath (pictured) will not be renewed and that the team has begun an immediate search to find an individual to fill the role of head coach and general manager, replacing Blaine Moore who previously announced that he was leaving the organization following the season.
“Anytime you make a decision like this it is always tough, but especially so in this case,” said Falcons owner Charles Davenport. “Greg Spenrath has given everything he has to this organization for the past 10 years, which includes helping to lead us to a championship three years ago. His number 27 is hanging from the rafters for good reason, and as a coach he worked extremely hard and was well-liked and respected by our players. I have the utmost regard for Greg and wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.
“At the end of the day, though, we have failed to make the playoffs two years in a row. With Blaine leaving as well, I felt it was time for a fresh start,” Davenport added. “I expect, and our fans deserve a team that competes for the Kelly Cup Championship every season. I’m committed to finding the right person to lead the Falcons back to the postseason for a chance to win another title.”
