BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Bakersfield Condors front office is making a huge announcement today, in that Head Coach Matt O'Dette will not return for the 2013-2014 season.
"We are in a results-based business, and this is a decision that is purely an issue of wins and losses," said Condors President Matthew Riley in a press release.
"This is in no way a judgment of the work and dedication that Coach O'Dette has shown to this organization for the past two seasons. I personally have a great deal of respect for 'Odie', and have no doubt that he will find success beyond his time with the Condors."
In O'Dette's two seasons at the helm, the Condors had a record of 46-85-6-7 (.358), making it the first time the team has failed to qualify for the playoffs in consecutive seasons.
