The Colorado Mammoth have announced that the team has promoted recently named assistant coach Bob Hamley as the club’s latest head coach, taking over for franchise President and GM Steve Govett, who took over coaching responsibilities after releasing Bob McMahon earlier this season.

In a bit of a strange twist, the promotion of Hamley also sees the return of McMahon, who the team says was brought back at the request of Hamley, the two coaches spending time together in a similar situations with the Albany Attack, Arizona Sting and even the Mammoth prior to Hamley leaving to take over the Edmonton Rush’s bench two seasons ago.

“We’re trying every possible combination to get the team back on track,” said Govett. “This is another step in the process.”

The team came out strong with back-to-back OT wins after Govett first took over, but have gone 0-5 since, sitting at the bottom of the West Division with a league worst 2-7 record.

“We have to figure things out to get back to where Mammoth fans and the organization itself are accustomed to,” said Hamley. “I’m excited by the increased responsibility.”
