The Port Huron Fighting Falcons, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) have announced the Head Coach and General Manager Steve Shannon has been relieved of his duties by the team effective immediately.
Assistant Coach Michael Gershon has been named the interim head coach and general manager by Owner/Governor Maribeth Hayes.
Gershon met with and informed the Port Huron players about the decision on Tuesday afternoon and offered the following remarks. “For us moving forward, it is business as usual right now as we prepare for a big series this weekend against the Jamestown Ironmen,” said Gershon. “I think in order to maintain stability we just need to focus on what we can control on the ice. The team is off to a good start and has been playing well, so we are looking forward to the series and focusing solely on that.”
