Halifax Mooseheads fire head coach after less than two years with the team
The Halifax Mooseheads fired head coach JJ Daigneault less than two years after starting his tenure behind the team bench.
The team announced the move on Thursday morning. The Mooseheads have posted a 35-71 record since Daigneault was named head coach in July 2019.
Mooseheads general manager Cam Russell said there was no specific incident leading to Daigneault’s dismissal, saying the past two seasons have been a phase of rebuilding for the team.
“It comes down to the fact that we feel with the group of players that we have now, and where we want to move forward, he just wasn’t the person for the job,” said Russell.
Russell said he would like to thank Daigneault for his hard work and dedication.
Russell said the team were not sure when a new coach would be appointed, but that he and majority owner Bobby Smith would discuss this week.
