WENY-TV Sports has learned first that Jackals head coach Pat Bingham has left the team. Bingham, who completed just one season with the club, has accepted the head coaching position with the Colorado Rampage, a 16-under junior league team. For Bingham, just two years removed from the AHL coaching ranks, the uncertainty and speculation surrounding First Arena and the Jackals likely played a major role in his departure. The Jackals lost in the 2nd round of the ECHL playoffs to eventual Kelly Cup Champions the Florida Everblades last year. The Jackals will now look for their 10th coach in franchise history, with just a little over a month to go before the start of the season. More on this story as it develops.
