After three seasons behind the bench of the Sr A Nanaimo Timbermen, Art Webster has decided to step away from his duties with the club, citing long hours and an even longer commute as his main reasons. The T-men have improved under Webster but still failed to make the post-season despite coming close in the past couple of years. The Victoria, BC resident who recently retired from his position with Canada Post will continue working with the NLL’s Washington Stealth as defensive coach under Chris Hall, but he just couldn’t take getting home at 2:30 am any more.

The T-men have yet to name a replacement but hope to do so in the next couple of weeks as they prepare for the 2013 WLA Season, in which they will attempt to end their nearly 10-year long play-off drought.
