The following is a statement from the Wichita Falls Wildcats ownership:
The Wichita Falls Wildcats ownership and Coach Tony Curtale have agreed to part ways on good terms effective today, Thursday, December 1, 2016. Mr. Curtale was brought on board when Coach LaFontaine accepted the position at Muskogee the USHL in July. Mr. Curtale has had an excellent record during his coaching career in the NAHL and we are sure he will be in a position again soon.
Coach Lafontaine, GM/Partner Paul Baxter, Co-owner Alex Shnayderman, and Roy Davoult built a foundation here in Wichita Falls and wanted to keep it alive. Assistant Coach Josh Nelson will take over the duties as head Coach throughout the 2016-2107 season. The organization wishes Mr. Curtale great success.
Roy Davoult comments:
“Changes are inevitable in this sports world and today there was a change in the Wildcats organization. Eleven years as an owner has consisted of changes. When I first came when Rick Brodsky told me, “Hockey is a small world and involves good and bad, but it's a family.” I wish Tony the very best in his career and know Tony will Continue on. He has a great hockey mind and will be back on the bench somewhere soon. The Wildcats will continue to strive for a Robertson Cup!
