Salt Lake Screaming Eagles President Thom Carter announced today that Head Coach William McCarthy has been relieved of his coaching duties effective March 1.
"While we remain confident that we have built a championship-contending team, solidified by Sunday's exciting win, philosophical differences pertaining to the management of the team have led us to the decision to part ways with Coach McCarthy," Carter stated.
"As an organization, we are committed to finding a head coach that is fully supportive of Project FANchise's model and who is excited at the opportunity to work alongside the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles impassioned fans worldwide in delivering against a winning inaugural season. We wish Coach William McCarthy the best of luck in all future endeavors."
Team officials have commenced an immediate review of coaching candidates and will continuously update fans throughout the process.
