Sioux Falls Stampede, Cary Eades Split After Failed Contract Negotiations
The Sioux Falls Stampede may have just won the Clark Cup for the second time in team history, but the head coach is on his way to a rival team.
There have been rumblings for a few weeks that the Stampede and Cary Eades were far apart in getting a new deal accomplished. Now that the season is over, Eades has found a new home.
The Sioux Falls Stampede confirmed on Wednesday that Cary Eades has taken a job with the Fargo Force. In a statement released, Stampede CEO/President Tom Garrity is thankful for what Eades brought to Sioux Falls.
"We want to thank Cary for his contributions to the club over the last three years, including a championship this past season. We appreciate what he has done to put a winning product back onto the ice and wish him nothing but the best in Fargo" - Tom Garrity
The Sioux Falls Stampede will announce a new head coach on Thursday at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. Fans are welcomed to attend the press conference, which will begin at 3:30.
