| Bowling Green Bandits Fire Coaching Staff- Dec.16, 2014 (by Scott)|
12/15/2014 statement by the Bowling Green Bandits ownership: The ownership of the Bowling Green Bandits hold the organization, including the coaching staff to a very high standard. Regrettably, this high standard has not been met by the coaches. The coaches are employed by the owners to make decisions that are in the best interest of the team when they take the floor.

12/15/2014 statement by the Bowling Green Bandits ownership:
The ownership of the Bowling Green Bandits hold the organization, including the coaching staff to a very high standard. Regrettably, this high standard has not been met by the coaches. The coaches are employed by the owners to make decisions that are in the best interest of the team when they take the floor. However, the owner's make decisions that are in the best interest of the organization as a whole. Unfortunately, the coaches have attempted to undermine ownership and negatively influence the players and the reputation of the Bandits. Therefore, the Bandits ownership has severed all ties with Darnell Mee, Kenny Britt and James Crain.
It is unfortunate that the coaches have attempted to hurt the players, the organization and ultimately the fans by sharing personnel matters that could only be interpreted as an effort to damage the Bandits chance at success. However, this breach by the coaches is indicative of why they have been dismissed from the team.
The Bandits ownership has spoken with the players about this change of direction in coaching and the players are prepared to move forward. While the right coaching staff is imperative to the team's long-term success, the wrong coaching staff is not. As the old saying goes, 'players win games, coaches lose them.' The Bandits ownership is committed to finding the right coach that can assist the players in continuing their winning ways that have already been realized with this year's 7-0 record.
More information will be forthcoming about who will be leading your undefeated Bandits on the floor when they play at the Southern Illinois Monarchs on December 27, 2014.
