"Obviously we haven't got off to the start we wanted," Josh Sanderson said. "As difficult as a decision as this was, I feel it's the right one for this team moving forward."
Matt Sawyer, who is currently an Assistant with the Toronto Rock in the NLL, will take over Head Coaching duties for the remainder of the 2015 season. Sawyer is familliar with a lot of the Rock's young players, who played under his watch while winning Minto Cups with the Orangeville Northmen in the Junior A circuit.
After starting the season 0-3 using a number of call-ups, the Rock have performed better with a strong nucleus of young players like, Jason and Jeremy Noble, Wes Berg, Rob Hellyer, Bryan Cole and Dan Lomas, but still haven't been able to find the win column.
The Rock will look to pick up their first win Sunday against Kitchener-Waterloo, 6PM at the Waterloo Rec.
