Despite starting 2-0 and tied for the North Division lead, the Hamburg Sea Devils of the European League of Football have parted ways with HC Ted Daisher. In a statement released via Instagram on Tuesday, the team had this to say:
“The past few weeks have unfortunately shown that we had different views and expectations regarding the philosophy and leadership of our team. It is therefore only logical, regardless of success, to make a change at the top. Sometimes such steps are necessary in order to really develop the full potential of a team. We thank Ted Daisher for his work in Hamburg and wish him all the best for his future.”– GM Max Paatz
In a separate statement, the Hamburg GM also said this about how they plan to move forward with the coaching staff:
“With Coach Nommensen and Coach Ellison, we have two experienced coaches who are well entrenched with the team and will seamlessly take over the duties and responsibilities that have been vacated. Whether we will present a new head coach for the rest of the season or continue in this constellation, we will decide calmly and carefully in the coming days.”– Max Paatz
In the meantime, offensive coordinator Andreas Nommensen will take over the head coaching duties.
Daisher is a native of Michigan and got his coaching start at Kalamazoo Christian High School. From there he made his way through the college and professional ranks including stops at Illinois, Army, twice with the Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders, and Cleveland Browns. Along the way, Daisher became a mentor for Patrick Esume, who would eventually become the ELF’s Commissioner.
The Sea Devils hope to maintain their unblemished season against the Berlin Thunder on Sunday.
