For the second straight off season, the Trenton Golden Hawks will be searching for a new Coach and General Manager.
In a statement to Quinte News, Marty Abrams made the following statement.
Due to philosophical differences I will not be returning to the Trenton Golden Hawks as General Manager/Coach for the 2018-2019 season. I would like to thank team owners Sandy Smith and Rod Finney for allowing me to be a part of such a first class organization last season. A further thank you to all the Golden Hawks staff, players and fans who made my experience in Trenton very enjoyable. I wish the entire organization all the best for the 2018-2019 season which promises to be very exciting.
We have reached out to officials with the Trenton Golden Hawks and they tell Quinte News they have no comment at this time.
Following the departure of Jerome Dupont, Kyle Smart and Kevin Forrest last off season, Abrams announced his resignation as Coach/GM of the Wellington Dukes. He then signed a multi-year contract to join Trenton.
Following back-to-back Dudley Hewitt Cup Championships, the G-Hawks struggled, due to few returning players, injuries and other changes. They lost in a hard fought first round series against the Aurora Tigers.
Earlier this spring, Assistant Coach Todd Reid announced he would be rejoining the Wellington Dukes, taking over the General Manager’s role. There is no update on current Trenton Assistant Coach Patrick Shearer’s future with the team.
