The Arizona Wranglers of the U.S. Football League fired head coach Frank Kush on Tuesday. The Wranglers stand at 4-9 this season and 11-20 over the course of the last two seasons.
“Not an easy decision,” said General Manager George Allen at an afternoon press conference. “We have informed Coach Kush that he will no longer be our head football coach. Frank and his family have been great football ambassadors for the state of Arizona and our football franchise. Over the course of this season, myself and Mr. Tatham have both felt that the product on the field is not up to the standards that we expect. We haven’t had the success we expected, or anticipated by many including myself and the team president.”
Offensive coordinator Roman Gabriel will serve as interim coach – the Wranglers have five games remaining, three at home starting Saturday with a game against division rival Houston.
